Highland Park Vet Pet Vaccines
Just like humans, pets need immunizations and vaccines to maintain good health. Not only are their different vaccines for different types of pets and diseases, but there are also different combinations as well. There are risks and benefits for different vaccinations that should be considered for every pet, related to their specific lifestyle and health.
There are 2 different types of Vaccines for both Dogs and Cats. There are called Core Vaccines and Non-core Vaccines. Core vaccines are considered a top priority for all pets based on risk, severity, or transmissible to humans.
Pets can show reactions to vaccines just like humans but may be minor or may require immediate care. Some clinical signs may include:
- Loss of appetite
- Facial swelling and/or hives
- Pain, swelling, redness, scabbing or hair loss around the injection site
- Difficulty breathing
