At Animal Hospital of Loves Park, we strongly encourage all pet owners to make sure their pets are up-to-date on vaccinations at all times. If it's been awhile since your pet was last vaccinated or if you know your pet is overdue for certain vaccinations, now is a great time to schedule an appointment with our vet. After all, pet vaccinations are just one of the many comprehensive health and wellness services we provide in our office.
Why Vaccinations Are So Important
Having your pet regularly vaccinated is one of the easiest things you can do to protect your beloved pet from any number of diseases, infections, and even potentially fatal illnesses. Unfortunately, when your pet's vaccinations expire, the antibodies produced in your pet's body to protect them are no longer viable; as a result, your pet could once again become prone to serious disease and illness. This is why it's so important to stay on top of your pet's vaccination schedule and avoid letting vaccinations lapse.
It's also important to remember that most boarding facilities and groomers will require proof of updated vaccinations in order to serve your pet, so if your pet isn't up-to-date, you might not be able to have your pet groomed, board your pet while you're away, or even take your dog to a local dog park!
Which Vaccines Do Your Pets Need?
A lot of times, pet owners fail to have their pets properly vaccinated because they simply don't know which vaccines their pets need. It's true that vaccination schedules can sometimes be confusing, but our veterinary team is here to help. When you bring your pet in for vaccinations with us, we'll provide you with an updated vaccination schedule so you can easily see which vaccines your pet is due for and when. This can help you better plan your appointments with our animal hospital and ensure that your pet's vaccines don't lapse. We're also happy to send out reminders when your pet is about to be due for an appointment.
