For adult pets, we recommend vaccine appointments
Depending on your pet's age and vaccination history, your veterinarian might recommend a custom vaccination plan.
Pet vaccinations are important for all dogs and cats; even the ones that remain indoors most, if not all, of the time because they could still catch an airborne virus from outside at potty time or through an open window or door screen. More often than not, viruses are spread due to contact with other infected animals that are wild or whose owners did not elect to keep their pet vaccinations up to date. Given the violent and progressive nature of small-animal viruses, it is of the utmost importance to immunize your pet and opt to keep your kitty current with the latest cat vaccinations and your pooch up to date with his or her dog vaccination.
Not every pet requires the same series or frequency of vaccines. At Derry Animal Hospital, our veterinarians determine a vaccination protocol based on your pet’s lifestyle, susceptibility to disease, geographic location, and the most current recommendations from the American Animal Hospital Association. Our goal to is to maintain optimal health and protection while not over-vaccinating your pet.
