Vaccinations


vaccinesAt Planco Veterinary Care, we know the importance of keeping your pet protected from diseases present in our community; therefore, we highly recommend vaccinating your pet.

Pets today can live longer, healthier lives than ever before—in part because of vaccines that help protect them from deadly infectious diseases. Over the years, vaccines against dangerous diseases have saved millions of pets and virtually eliminated some fatal diseases that were once common. Unfortunately, many infectious diseases still pose a significant threat to dogs and cats that are not vaccinated.

Many vaccines are available for use in dogs and cats, but not every pet needs every available vaccine. Some vaccines are considered core vaccines and should be administered to all pets, whereas other vaccines are optional and may be recommended for pets based on a variety of factors, such as their risk for exposure to disease. Vaccine recommendations can also change throughout a pet’s life, as travel habits and other variables change. We will consider all these factors as we determine which vaccines your pet should have.

Planco Veterinary Care uses a three year Distemper Complex vaccine and have one year or three year Rabies vaccines. Using these three year vaccines allows us to minimize the vaccines your pet gets while providing complete protection. The Bordatella (Kennel Cough) vaccine is oral and is effective for a full year.

If you have any questions about your pet’s vaccination status or want to discuss vaccines your pet may need, please call and speak to any of our experienced staff.
