Edgewood Animal Clinic recommends Vaccination
Vaccinations begin between ages six and eight weeks of age for puppies and kittens. Nursing pets begin to lose immunity from mother's milk and boostering vaccinations helps prevent or lessen the severity of certain life threatening diseases. After four months of age pets are protected for one year.
Vaccinations are tailored to fit the pets lifestyles. Some pet's visit grooming salons, boarding facilities, obedience classes and dog parks bringing them in contact more readily with viruses. These pets need yearly protection against Distemper, Parvo, Bronchchitis, Leukemia, and Rabies.
Some pets travel to places where other diseases are more prevelant and vaccinations for Lyme disease and Leptospirosis may be advised.
Senior, geriatric, and pets experience allergic reactions require different protocols. Dr. David Lee will examine the pet to determine the safest action to take with these special cases. Vaccines are designed to keep pets healthy, not harm them!
