Bringing your puppy for their initial vaccinations and booster shots may seem inconvenient, but it's imperative to stay up to date with your dog's vaccines. Our Modesto vets discuss the importance of vaccination, benefits and side effects. We also share a schedule.
Why should you get your dog vaccinated?
Similar to vaccines designed for human use, vaccines for dogs in the Modesto area help in the battle to protect your pet from a number of serious, even fatal, diseases that can spread quickly between unvaccinated dogs.
While bringing your new puppy to your vet's office often throughout their first year may seem inconvenient (and even somewhat expensive), your puppy's first vaccinations and their annual boosters are essential in protecting them from disease. They also help lay the foundation for a long, happy life for your pet.
What illnesses can my dog's shots prevent?
The vaccines our vets recommend for puppies and adult dogs in Modesto and the surrounding area help prevent and reduce the severity of illnesses such as distemper, bordetella, hepatitis, rabies and parvovirus.
Our vets will assess your dog and recommend the most appropriate vaccinations based on your pet's age, the area you live, your dog's lifestyle and numerous other factors.
