Pet Vaccines: What You Need to Know
Pet vaccines are divided into two basic groups; Core and Non-Core. Core vaccinations are those recommended for every pet, regardless of their age or lifestyle. Non-core vaccinations are tailored recommendations based on your pet's lifestyle and potential disease exposure.
Common Non-Core vaccines are the Lyme Disease and Rattlesnake Vaccines. Our Dana Point veterinarian team may recommend these vaccines for your dog if they spend time in areas where ticks and rattlesnakes are prevalent. These vaccines are a relatively inexpensive way to prevent or lessen the severity of these issues if they occur.
Be sure to share as much as you can about your pet's lifestyle with your care team during their exam so that appropriate recommendations can be made to keep them healthy and happy.
