Protecting your pet
Vaccinating your pet is the best way to show you care for your precious furry family member! Just as humans need preventive vaccinations that offer protection against many serious illnesses, your pets can thrive on regular vaccinations too. Vaccinating your pet is also the recommended way to protect other family members from any risk of disease.
The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) has formulated specific guidelines on vaccination for pets. But as each pet is unique, individualized vaccine regimen based on the pet’s risk factors, breed, environment, age and health needs is recommended. There can be wide variations in risk factors depending on all these factors and geographical locations. Expert veterinarians at Affordable Care Animal Hospital can design the ideal vaccination program for your pet based on their individual factors.

Post vaccination care
Vaccines or immunizations work by stimulating the response from the pet’s immune system which develops antibodies against the particular disease. These antibodies become activated and can recognize the threat should the actual infection attempt to enter and effectively fight the infectious agent. Because the vaccine introduces the infectious agent in a mild form, the pet can experience mild symptoms after vaccination that can include soreness, mild fever and swelling or allergic reactions.
Although most of these side effects are mild and disappear on their own, if you notice serious allergic reactions, vomiting, loss of appetite, severe rash, difficulty breathing or other signs, it is important to consult our team of veterinarians. At Affordable Care Animal Hospital, we treat your pet as our own and focus our attention on offering the best in preventive healthcare to your pet.
