One of the most basic ways to care for your pet is to be sure they are up to date with their pet vaccinations in Charlotte, NC. At Compassionate Care Veterinary Hospital of Charlotte, our veterinarian in Charlotte NC, Dr. Trish Johnson is here to provide quality care for your pet whether it is a checkup, updating vaccinations such as canine influenza or rabies, or taking care of some other medical need.
Vaccinations for your pets are important because they protect your own pet from illness, as well as any other animals or humans in your pet's life since some diseases in pets can be spread to your family. Even pets that are kept primarily indoors and are not interacting much with other pets may still be susceptible to illnesses they can catch from a stray pest that manages to get in the house, or even from humans.
Vaccinations are designed to prevent diseases that can cause great discomfort and harm to your pet, as well as great expense to you in treating them. By comparison, getting regular vaccines and boosters at our animal hospital in Charlotte is a good way to help ensure that your pet stays as healthy as possible and experiences a good quality of life.
The vaccine your pet needs depends on a number of factors, including the type of pet you have, their general health, and their age. There are some common and required vaccines that nearly every pet owner should consider.
The following vaccines are considered standard for cats and are designed to keep them protected, as well as other people and animals around them.
When a vaccination is administered, it is meant to activate your pet's immune system and offer protection against the designated diseases. In most cases, there are little or no side effects from the vaccines, but some pets may have a few ill effects, such as soreness of the injection site, loss of appetite, fever, loss of energy, vomiting, diarrhea, lameness, swelling, or hives. More severe side effects may include difficulty breathing, seizures, or collapse.
Although your pet will likely be acting like himself within a day or two, it is a good idea to schedule their vaccination appointment during a time when you or someone you trust can offer a little extra supervision, just in case they need follow up care from their vet in Charlotte.
To get your pet caught up on their vaccinations, or to treat them for another medical need contact Compassionate Care Veterinary Hospital of Charlotte at 704-847-4796 to schedule an appointment.

I have used Dr Johnson ever since she opened this office and my pets love her to death. She is very caring and does not rush you and always answers your questions in layman's terms. She loves her work along with her associates.
