Vaccinations Based on Lifestyle
We follow the safest guidelines to prevent your pet from contracting one of the many infectious agents they can be exposed to. We follow the American Animal Hospital Association’s (AAHA) guidelines in dogs and the American Association of Feline Practitioners’ (AAFP) guidelines in cats and will have you complete a lifestyle questionnaire before every vaccination to insure we are giving all the vaccinations that your pet needs and none that it doesn’t. There is significant research that indicates over-vaccination can be as serious as under-vaccination in any given situation. We will always make sure that we involve you in the decision to vaccinate or not and go by the credo that “vaccination is a medical decision” to be administered only after a physical exam and after a discussion of the of risks vs. benefits of each vaccine.
