Purcellville Pet Vaccinations
Protecting Your Pet’s Health
You can help protect your pet’s health by keeping them up to date with their vaccinations. Vaccines keep your pets from contracting serious disease and prevents the spread of them to the wider community. According to the ASPCA, one of the best things that you can do for your pet’s health and quality of life is to ensure that they are getting the vaccines they need on a regular basis. Blue Ridge Veterinary Associates believes that vaccines are an essential part of caring for your pet. When you bring your pet in for their routine wellness exams, our Purcellville veterinarians will speak with you about your pet’s overall health and lifestyle before recommending vaccines that can protect their wellness.
As with every recommendation for your pet, our Purcellville veterinarians will take all of your pet’s health needs into the consideration before recommending a vaccine regimen for your pet. We want to ensure that your pet is getting comprehensive care so that they can stay safe and healthy throughout their lives.
Core vaccines are considered universal for all pets regardless of lifestyle. These vaccinations prevent diseases that have a high degree of transmission or are considered particularly severe. Different species have different core vaccines – your veterinarian will walk you through the types of vaccines we recommend for your pets.
Canine core vaccinations include:
Feline core vaccinations include:
- Herpes virus type I
In addition to the core vaccinations listed above, the Blue Ridge Veterinary Associates team may recommend other vaccinations that can help protect your pet’s health.
Vaccines for both pets and humans undergo rigorous testing before they are permitted for use in the broader population. Dangerous diseases, such as distemper, still exist, but exist at much lower levels than before the vaccine for the disease was developed. Regular vaccinations help keep these diseases at bay, making them less common and less likely to be passed around. By vaccinating your pet, you are not only ensuring that your pet is protected from dangerous transmissible diseases, but you are also protecting the other pets in the Purcellville community.
While unlikely, it is possible that your pet may experience a negative reaction to their vaccines. Common reactions include soreness or swelling around the vaccination area. Less commonly, pets may experience fever or inflammation. Before we vaccinate your pet, our veterinary team will take your pet’s medical history and preexisting conditions into account to help limit the likelihood of a negative reaction. We want your pet to live a happy, healthy life. Vaccines can help dramatically improve their quality of life.
