Cat and Dog Vaccinations

One of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of infection among animals in the Henderson, NV community and keep family dogs and cats protected is to have them vaccinated by their veterinarian on a regular basis. Sunridge Animal Hospital uses some of the safest cat and dog vaccines on the market, and we tailor every pet’s vaccination schedule to their needs so they are not at risk of being over-vaccinated.

The immunity boost provided by vaccines does not last forever, so we do need to make sure your four-legged family member is adequately protected at all times.

Why Vaccines are Important

While some pets might have a naturally higher immunity to diseases than others, they can still be carriers and unknowingly pass on an infection to other animals--or even humans! Another highlight of cat and dog vaccinations is that they can get us closer to helping to eradicate some very serious diseases. Human vaccines have made some illnesses all but obsolete today, and we hope the same can be done for our animal companions.

In addition, keeping your pet fortified against infection with vaccines also keeps them healthier and happier. You’re helping them avoid the stress and discomfort of potentially life-threatening disease, which also means less concern for you and your family.
