Dog and Cat Vaccinations Sewell, NJ for Better Health & Longer Lives

Pets need vaccines throughout their lives to maintain an effective immunity to the dangerous diseases they protect against. Dog and Cat vaccinations have been instrumental in limiting the prevalence of certain diseases such as distemper, parvovirus, and panleukopenia in Sewell, NJ. In the past, these diseases were rampant among the pet community and took a significant toll on the health of cats and dogs, if not their lives. Nowadays, these diseases are relatively rare, not because they are no longer in the environment, but because dog and cat vaccines provide such a strong level of protection. At Pet Check Urgent Care, it is our goal to provide the highest level of protection with the safest vaccine protocols.

Timings for Pet Vaccines

Puppies and kittens begin their vaccines with a series given in their first year of life. Typically, vaccinations start at 6-8 weeks of age and then continue until 16 weeks of age. After this initial series, your pet will require boosters throughout their lives to maintain their immunity. Most vaccines are 1-year vaccines, but some, such as canine rabies do come as 3-year vaccines. Bordetella, on the other hand, may require 6-month vaccinations, depending on the type of vaccine given. We take every precaution to reduce any risk of over-vaccination by following industry standards and using high-quality vaccinations.
