Defend Your Pet: Understanding Pet Vaccines

Keeping your furry companion healthy is what pet vaccinations are for! These crucial vaccinations act as a safety net, guarding against various diseases that can impact your pet – and other pets they may come in contact with.

At Stone Cottage Veterinary Hospital, we’re here to guide you through the ins and outs of pet vaccines, ensuring your pet gets the protection they need. Whether you have a puppy or kitten that needs all their pet vaccinations or an older pet that only requires a few boosters, we’ll create an individual vaccination plan based on their age, medical history, environment, and lifestyle.
