Will My Pet Experience Any Side Effects  from Their Vaccines?

Will My Pet Experience Any Side Effects from Their Vaccines?

Side effects from vaccines are rare, but not unheard of. Some dogs and cats may have soreness and a small amount of swelling around the injection site, or they might be lethargic for a few hours. These effects usually resolve themselves within a day or two. If, however, your pet is experiencing persistent effects that might be vaccine-related, don’t hesitate to contact us!

Dogs and Cats Only Get  the Vaccines They Need

Dogs and Cats Only Get the Vaccines They Need

To further reduce the risk of vaccine-induced side effects in pets, we create customized vaccine schedules to guarantee that dogs and cats get only the vaccinations they truly need. Our hospital offers a variety of vaccines, but generally, pets will not need to be vaccinated against every disease.

When we see your pet for their wellness exam, we’ll discuss the health risks they’re most likely going to face. We then work with you to build a vaccination plan around those risks. There’s no need to vaccinate your pet for a disease they’re highly unlikely to come across.

Which Diseases are the Most Dangerous  for Pets?

Which Diseases are the Most Dangerous for Pets?

Some vaccines are required by law, due to the danger of certain diseases. These include:

Rabies

Cases of rabies are not as common among dogs and cats as they used to be, thanks to greater awareness and responsibility on the part of pet parents. The rabies virus targets the nervous system, and is almost always fatal. Wildlife carriers of this disease include raccoons, bats, skunks, and foxes. If you or your pet sustain a bite from one of these animals, seek medical attention immediately.

Distemper

Dogs are among the many varieties of animals affected by distemper, a virus with a 50% mortality rate among adult canines and an 80% mortality rate in puppies. It can be spread via direct contact or exposure to airborne droplets from coughing, sneezing, or barking. Distemper affects multiple organ systems and can be shed by infected animals for months on end.
