Keeping your pet strong and healthy for life is the goal of any good owner. If you have a beloved animal family member, you no doubt share that goal, and vaccinations are an excellent way to ensure the best chance of pet health. Here at Trinity Pet Hospital, we offer vaccinations delivered compassionately in a calm environment, so both you and your pet can feel as safe and secure as possible.
Myriad studies have confirmed that pets – much like humans – stay safer and live longer when they’re regularly vaccinated against a variety of diseases and illnesses. Since our goal is to keep your pet healthy for years to come, we here at Trinity Pet Hospital believe strongly in vaccinating animals regularly, keeping their immunity up and saving you the time and money that would be spent on healing them if they were to fall prey to a preventable illness – not to mention the heartache of knowing you could have done something to avoid the situation.
Our Orange County pet hospital, which is located in Laguna Hills, wants to be your partner in safeguarding your pet's health, so come learn more today.
Pet vaccines work by delivering small, controlled doses of a virus or other pathogen. The animal’s immune system then rallies to fight off the pathogen, and in the process forms the defenses necessary to respond to a much higher dose of that pathogen – such as they would encounter in the real world. Vaccines not only give your animals the tools to successfully heal from infection, but they often provide full immunity, meaning infection can never take root in the first place.
The most common vaccinations for dogs are parvovirus, distemper, canine hepatitis and rabies. The majority of states require proof that your dog has regular vaccinations against rabies, often on a yearly or tri-yearly basis. Depending on your lifestyle, other recommended vaccinations for dogs include Bordetella bronchiseptica, Borrelia burgdorferi, and Leptospira bacteria.
Cats should be routinely vaccinated against rabies, Feline Panleukopenia and Feline Calicivirus/Herpesvirus. Other potential vaccines include Feline Leukemia, Chlamydia, Feline Infectious Peritonitis and Ringworm.
Here at Trinity Pet Hospital, we not only provide vaccinations. We also work with you to determine the right combination of vaccines for your pet, according to their lifestyle, background and contact with other animals.
