Vaccinations protect your pet against diseases that can be extremely detrimental to their health. Treatment for some of these potentially harmful diseases are far more expensive than vaccinations. They are a great preventative health tool for all pets, even those who spend most of their time indoors.
What’s the difference between core and non-core vaccines?
Core vaccines are those that we recommend for all pets, while non-core are specific to your pet’s individual needs. For example, your pet might be at a higher risk for diseases like chlamydia, which we’ll recommend a non-core vaccination to protect them against. Vaccinations help build your pet’s immunity against a disease by providing them with full protection or minimize the symptoms associated with it. We’d like to create a personalized vaccination plan to support your pet’s unique needs. To discuss your pet’s plan, please contact us at 416-941-8920.
