Vaccinations are an important part of keeping your pet healthy and living a long life. It starts with early shots. Puppies and kittens are particularly susceptible to some dangerous diseases once they are weaned from their mothers. However, good wellness vaccines don't end there.
Even inside pets need to have periodic vaccines to guard against diseases like rabies, parvovirus, distemper, and feline panleukopenia. More outdoorsy dogs may benefit from additional vaccines such as the Leptospirosis and Lyme vaccines. At Staten Island Veterinary Group, we can help you come up with a customized vaccine schedule for your pet, based on their exposure levels and age.
