Providing Cat and Dog Vaccinations in Hingham, MA
Cat and dog vacinations are often your pet’s first and most effective defense against infectious diseases, many of which can be found here in Hingham, MA. Rabies, kennel cough, Lyme disease, and others are virtually always a risk for our pets, unless they have a consistent vaccination schedule. At Old Derby Animal Hospital, our veterinary team can help you establish a schedule suited to your pet's needs and potential risk factors, such as location and travel frequency.
Which Vaccines are Necessary for My Pet?
Rabies and DHPP for dogs, and rabies and FVRCP for cats are necessary for the health and safety of your pet. Rabies is a lethal virus that can spread from animals to humans, and there is usually little chance of recovery. Canine distemper, parvovirus, and feline leukemia can also be fatal, especially if the pet is very young, very old, or has a weakened immune system.
Beyond the core vaccines we recommend, we will need to understand your pet’s health history and lifestyle before going more in-depth. Once we’ve identified their risk factors, we can help you tailor a vaccine plan according to their needs.
