Pet Vaccinations in Las Vegas, NV

Pet vaccines have saved the lives of countless dogs and cats and reduced the prevalence of certain diseases so significantly that they are virtually non-existent today. However, fatal diseases such as rabies and distemper still exist, and remain a threat to unvaccinated pets. To protect companion animals and humans here in our Las Vegas community, we strongly recommend keeping your pet vaccinated throughout their life. Your pet’s protection indirectly benefits other pets and people that might be vulnerable by reducing or preventing the spread of infection.

Let’s make sure your pet’s vaccines are up to date. Contact us today to request an appointment!

Why We Tailor Your Pet’s Vaccinations

Vaccinating your pet is important, but even more important is making sure they get the vaccines they require for their unique needs and lifestyle. Your dog or cat is not likely to need every vaccine we carry for their species. In fact, we strive to avoid over-vaccinating, as this can be counterproductive to keeping them healthy!

Tailoring your pet’s vaccinations ensures they receive the fullest possible protection against fatal diseases that are a high risk for all pets. However, this also gives your pet protection against infectious diseases they might encounter more often than other pets due to their lifestyle.

Lifestyle-based vaccines are therefore optional, and we consider several factors when recommending these vaccines, including:

•  Risk of exposure
•  Travel habits
•  Indoor/outdoor lifestyle

Parasite Prevention Limits the Spread of Disease in Pets

In addition to vaccinating your pet regularly to maintain their immunity, we also recommend administering parasite preventatives to your pet all year round. Both dogs and cats are at risk for parasites including fleas, ticks, heartworms, roundworms, and other pests, which not only cause frustrating infestations but can also cause serious illness. With parasite preventatives, you protect your pet’s health and quality of life but also help reduce the spread of parasites and potentially life-threatening parasitic diseases like Lyme.
Parasites in your dog or cat are not always easy to detect, but our hospital can detect them with the appropriate blood test or fecal exam. For more information about parasite prevention, contact Sahara Pines Animal Hospital at (702) 876-7580.
