When to Vaccinate
It is important to vaccinate your pets early, as puppies and kittens are particularly susceptible to certain life-threatening, contagious diseases. Both dogs and cats should receive their first vaccinations at approximately 6 to 8 weeks of age. The first round of vaccinations for kittens should be completed by approximately 16 weeks of age, while puppy vaccinations may continue until your pet is 12 to 16 months old.
When you bring your pet to Affordable Animal Hospital Silver Lake for vaccinations, we will give you a schedule to follow for the vaccines your pet requires, including boosters. Our compassionate veterinary team is dedicated to helping you provide the protection your kitten or puppy needs from a range of life-threatening infectious diseases.
