National Immunization Awareness Month

Celebrate National Immunization Awareness Month with Pet Vaccinations in Coronado

Our veterinarians and staff at Coronado Veterinary Hospital are celebrating National Immunization Awareness Month this August by educating our community about the importance and necessity of pet vaccinations in Coronado. Vaccinations protect your cats and dogs from contagious diseases by preparing their immune systems to fight them off when encountered later in life. 

Vaccinations are separated into two categories, core and non-core vaccines. Core vaccines include those required by law and those which protect your pet against common diseases. Non-core vaccines protect your pet from diseases which are only encountered when pets live outdoors or encounter lots of other animals. We offer a complete menu of vaccinations to protect your pet from dangerous, contagious, and common diseases. national immunization awareness month with pet vaccinations in coronado

Understanding Which Pet Vaccines Your Pet Requires

Our Coronado Veterinary Hospital veterinarian will help you determine which pet vaccines your cat or dog requires. We ensure your pet receives all core vaccinations required by law and those regularly administered to pets for disease prevention. We will also help you determine whether your pet should receive any non-core vaccinations depending on whether your pet stays indoors, goes outside, and how often he or she comes into contact with other cats and dogs. 

We will also establish a vaccination schedule for your new puppy or kitten to ensure he or she receives vaccinations and boosters in a safe and timely manner. Dogs and cats who have had all of their starter vaccinations should typically visit our office for an annual wellness appointment and vaccination update. 

Schedule an Appointment for Coronado Pet Vaccinations Today!

Preventative and wellness care are the best ways to protect your pet's health, happiness, and longevity. Vaccinations not only protect your pet from the pain and suffering of disease, they are also easier on the bank account. Preventative care is always less expensive than the cost of treating and caring for a sick pet. To schedule an appointment for your cat, dog, puppy, or kitten's Coronado pet vaccinations, contact our office at (619) 435-6281.
