At All Creatures Care Cottage Veterinary Hospital, we want to ensure pets are safe and healthy. When people obtain a pet at the shelter, we encourage them to ask about medical history and to check with our team about any immunizations that should be scheduled. We work with other veterinarians to get records on pets that may have already seen a doctor for specific shots and care in the past. A medical history is important for adult pets.
How do I get my pet vaccinated?
We encourage pet owners to obtain any specific medical paperwork on the pet, if possible. We understand that sometimes this cannot be done, but this does not eliminate the need for immunizations. If pets have already had their vaccinations done and are not ready for renewal, we will schedule them at the appropriate time. If the last time of their vaccines is unknown, we may wait until a later date to avoid overlapping these treatments in a pet with an unknown medical history.
