Cat And Dog Vaccinations In Bradenton Fl

Determining the Right Vaccines for Your Pet

Every dog and cat requires different vaccines based on their specific health needs, lifestyle, and environment. At Keystone Animal Hospital, we offer both essential core vaccines and additional lifestyle/risk-based vaccines. Core vaccines are recommended for all pets, and non-core vaccines are given only if your pet’s risk level requires it. By evaluating your pet’s health history, current health status, and lifestyle, we can identify the most important vaccines for their protection.

Our available vaccines include:

When Should Your Cat or Dog Begin Vaccinations?

Pets can start receiving vaccinations when they are as young as 6-8 weeks. Young puppies and kittens are at higher risk for infections as they no longer receive antibodies from their mother, necessitating the protection of booster shots.

To manage the risk of over-vaccination, we schedule booster shots 3-4 weeks apart and tailor the schedule based on the size and health needs of each dog and cat. This cautious approach helps us ensure the vaccines are both safe and effective, minimizing the potential for adverse reactions.
