Vaccinations From Our North Vancouver Veterinarian
At Delbrook Mall Animal Hospital, our North Vancouver veterinarian offers a wide range of preventative care services to suit your pet's needs—including vaccinations for all stages of your dog or cat's life. If your pet is due for updated vaccines or if you're not sure when your pet was last vaccinated, our team is here to help. Specifically, pet vaccinations enable and encourage your pet's body to produce natural antibodies against certain types of disease and illness, thus reducing their contraction risk. It is important to keep your pet up-to-date on vaccinations because many of them only last for one to three years before their effects "wear out." By this point, your pet could lose his or her protection.
Which Vaccines Does Your Pet Need?
Generally, the best way to find out is to refer to your most recent veterinary paperwork. There should be a section on your pet's paperwork that indicates the specific dates your pet was last given each vaccine, along with a "due date" for your pet's next round of that vaccine. If you don't have recent vet paperwork, that's okay. Our veterinary team can speak with you and perform an assessment of your pet's health to determine which vaccines would be most appropriate at the time of your appointment.
In general, younger pets (like puppies and kittens) will need the most vaccines in the first few months of life. This usually includes "core" vaccines that protect against diseases that are common in your area. From there, additional "non-core" vaccines may be recommended depending on your pet's specific risk factors.
Vaccines Offered at Our Practice
We offer a wide range of vaccines in our office, with dog vaccination packages starting at 6-8 weeks and including:
- DHPPC (core)
- Lyme disease
Our cat vaccination packages begin at eight weeks of age and include the following vaccines:
- FVRCCP (core)
For dog and cat vaccination packages alike, your pet will generally need a booster of each vaccine a year after the initial injection. For some vaccines, such as rabies, your pet may only need a booster every three years after the first booster. We will provide you with a vaccination schedule so you're aware of what your pet needs and when.
