Vaccinations help build your pet’s immunity against infections and disease that could otherwise be harmful to their health. Our veterinary team will provide a vaccination plan that determines the core (essential) and non-core (risk-based) vaccines they need to support their health. If your pet doesn’t have a vaccination plan, please book an appointment with us to create one at 705-476-3913.
What’s the difference between core and non-core vaccinations?
Core vaccines provide essential protection for all pets against certain diseases. Based on risk factors, like your pet’s environment, level of interaction with other animals or their health, we recommend additional non-core vaccines. Vaccines help to build your pet’s immune response if they come in contact with the disease. Depending on the vaccine, your pet’s immune system will fight against the infection and completely protect them from contracting it. Or, your pet will experience less severe symptoms of the condition the vaccine protects against. We recommend feline friends start getting vaccinated when they are a few months old. As your pet ages, they will also need booster shots.
