Vaccines are divided into two basic groups: Core vaccinations and Non-core vaccinations. Core vaccinations are recommended for every pet, regardless of their lifestyle. Non-core vaccinations are recommended based on your pet's lifestyle & potential for exposure to certain diseases. For example, if your dog spends time in areas where ticks & rattlesnakes are prevalent, Lyme’s Disease & Rattlesnake Venom Vaccines are strongly recommended. It’s much easier (& usually much less expensive) to prevent or lessen the severity of lifestyle diseases than it is to diagnose & treat them. We will take the time to understand your dog or cat's unique needs and recommend the best vaccines to keep them healthy and happy.
