Caring Pet Hospital is proud to provide vaccinations to cats and dogs in the Hayward area. As your pet's Hayward animal hospital in Hayward CA, we encourage all pet owners to get their pets vaccinated on a regular basis. Understanding the benefits of pet vaccinations can help you take care of your pet and maintain your pet's good health.
Core vaccines, like the rabies vaccine, canine distemper, and feline calcivirus, are vaccines that are given to pets regardless of their lifestyle or other risk factors. Non-core vaccines, like the feline Leukemia virus and the canine rattlesnake vaccine, are vaccines that are administered to pets only if they are at risk for those illnesses and conditions. In the case of non-core vaccines, it is the pet's veterinarian who determines whether or not a pet is at risk for those conditions and which non-core vaccinations would be best administered to that pet.
Some pet owners have concerns about the safety of vaccinations. In general, the risk of complications after a vaccination is low. At Caring Pet Hospital, we sometimes see the following negative reactions in pets:
These reactions are all considered very mild and will generally go away in a matter of hours. Some pets may have a more severe reaction to vaccines, such as difficulty breathing, vomiting and diarrhea. However, severe negative reactions to vaccinations are very rare. At Caring Pet Hospital, we encourage pet owners to monitor their pet's health in the hours immediately following a vaccination. If your pet displays signs of severe distress, we encourage you to call us immediately.
At your pet's veterinarian in Hayward, we provide vaccinations to pets of our community. Serving the areas of Sorenson, Russell City, Fairview and San Lorenzo, we help pets build their resistance to diseases and enjoy better quality of life.
