Dr. Lola's Veterinary Care offers all recommended vaccinations for your cats and dogs straight to your home. When we meet for our visit, Dr. Lola will ask you questions about your pet’s lifestyle and talk with you about different vaccination options. More outdoorsy animals are often be exposed to a wider variety of pathogens, which may mean that we suggest a more comprehensive vaccination schedule. If your pet is in regular contact with other animals in a boarding kennel or at a dog park, there are other concerns that can be addressed through vaccinations as well.
Additionally, some diseases will make the rounds through California only during a specific season or every few years, necessitating additional specialized vaccines. Similar to human flu epidemics, there are a few contagious infections that pets can catch that may lead to emergency clinic visits, expensive treatments and potentially the passing of your pet. Many life-threatening conditions in pets can be easily prevented by getting them regularly vaccinated.
Vaccinating your pets is important not only for their health but also potentially the owner’s wellbeing. Some viruses and parasites can be spread from cats or dogs to humans, such as Rabies.
California law requires each dog older than three months to be vaccinated against rabies and licensed before it is five months old. If your dog is more than five months old, you have 30 days to get it licensed after you obtain it or bring it into California.
