Costa Mesa area veterinarian offers animal vaccine services

veterinarian offers animal vaccine services

Dr. Rand Spongberg and the team of All Creatures Care Cottage Veterinary Hospital encourage pet parents to fully understand the importance of vaccinating their pets. Many illnesses that can affect your pet are preventable with the use of vaccinations. Animal vaccines are essential and are available at our Costa Mesa practice.

How vaccines work

Many pet parents ask about vaccines and how they work. Vaccines prepare the body and its immune system for fighting off diseases with antigens. Introducing these antigens into the body stimulates the immune system – causing the body to recognize the disease. If the animal encounters the actual disease in the future, the body’s immune system will recognize it and defend the body against the disease. Using vaccinations to keep your pet healthy is a wonderful, proactive solution for extending their life.

What vaccines are necessary?

Vaccines vary, depending on the animal and their age. Most puppies and kittens get several rounds of vaccines when they are young, and then require some every year or so. Dogs often receive vaccines such as distemper, rabies, and canine hepatitis, while cats may receive feline distemper, rhinotracheitis, and rabies. Some are “non-core” vaccines, but can protect against certain diseases with higher exposure such as Bordetella bronchiseptica, or “kennel cough.” Talk to your veterinarian today to learn more about required and non-core vaccines.
