Averting Harmful Diseases with Pet Vaccinations
Diseases are the most likely threats your pet will face during their lifetime. Diseases can spread from animal to animal, from animal to human, or from human to animal with startling speed and cause serious illness. Fortunately, pet vaccinations can reduce or eliminate the threat of infection.
Wrigleyville Veterinary Center offers all of the most important vaccines that dogs and cats need to stay protected, regardless of their lifestyle. Since some of our patients may be more at risk than others for a certain disease, we want to ensure that all of our patients have maximum protection.
Why Pets Need to be Vaccinated Regularly
Routine vaccinations are necessary to give your pet ongoing disease protection for life. Vaccines increase your pet's immunity to viral diseases and should be given regularly to maintain that immunity. Without vaccinations, your pet is more vulnerable to infection.
An Early Start is Key
Puppies and kittens are especially vulnerable to disease, due to their weaker immune systems. That’s why starting their vaccinations when they are 6-8 weeks old is important. We offer vaccine boosters that must be given every 4 weeks to gradually build up their immunity and keep them protected as they grow.
