Pet Vaccinations FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions about Pet Vaccinations

Vaccines are crucial treatments that help pets build immunity to certain diseases. They are typically injections into the body that will help your pets fight off future infections and keep them from having protracted illnesses when they get older. The goal is to strengthen their immune system and to make them much less susceptible to the dangers of any infectious agents they may come into contact with.frequently asked questions about pet vaccinations in brooklyn

Why Is It Important to Vaccinate Your Cat or Dog at Different Life Stages

Young pets are much more susceptible to being affected by the disease because of their yet undeveloped immune system, so they need a special series of vaccinations to help keep them safe. As your pets age, they may need less regular vaccinations but the type of vaccines they need may change depending on their geographical environment and lifestyle. Indoor pets have less exposure to the diseases that may occur from being in regular contact with ticks, mites or other animals. Pets who live in areas where there is an abundance of wildlife might need different or more frequent vaccinations. It’s best to talk to your vet about the specific type and schedule of vaccines that your pet may need.

What Vaccines are Offered at the Practice

For pet vaccinations in Brooklyn, Dr. Pamella Dendtler, and our newest veterinarian Dr. Robert Gooden are highly skilled at providing not just vaccines and routine pet care but also at dealing with any emergencies that may arise while your pet is in their care. They are both passionate pet health providers and advocates that do everything in their power to ensure that your pet stays calm, relaxed and comfortable during the application of any treatments, medications or pet vaccines.
