Keeping Your Pet Healthy with an Individualized Vaccination Plan

Disease prevention is a key factor in the health of your pet. The pet experts at Wheaton Animal Hospital have the skill and expertise to customize a preventative care program for your pet at every life stage. Our preventative care plans focus on providing the appropriate protection for your pet based on age and lifestyle. We tailor the program to meet the needs of both you and your pet.

All pets have some risk of exposure to disease, even those confined to the indoors. State and federal laws mandate certain vaccinations, and additional vaccinations may be recommended based on your pet’s unique circumstances.

Pet Vaccines

Ultimately, our recommendations are based on the age and lifestyle routines of you and your pet. We consider:

  • Where you live – urban or rural area
  • How much time your pet spends outdoors – exposure to ticks and potential disease
  • If your pet is exposed to other pets – dog parks, boarding facilities, etc.

Great care is taken to maximize the protective benefits of vaccinations, and boosters are necessary to prolong their effectiveness. During your pet’s preventative care exam, a review of current and future vaccinations will be conducted.

Important vaccinations for your dog may include:

  • Canine distemper
    A widespread virus that can be fatal
  • Parvovirus
    A severe gastrointestinal disease
  • Rabies
  • Bordetella
  • Lyme disease
  • Influenza
  • Leptospirosis

Important vaccinations for your cat may include:

  • Feline distemper
    A fatal disease commonly seen in younger cats
  • Rhinotracheitis and calicivirus
    Two viruses causing respiratory diseases
  • Rabies
  • Bordetella
  • Feline leukemia

Vaccinations are safe, simple, and inexpensive protection against harmful diseases. Contact us with questions or concerns regarding vaccines and the diseases they prevent.
