Vaccines stimulate the immune system to learn how to fight a microorganism so that if the microorganism is encountered in the future, the pet will either not get sick or will have less severe illness. Vaccines are divided into two categories: core and non-core. Core vaccines are required for every pet, such as rabies. Non-core vaccines are recommended based on unique lifestyles and risk-factors. We will help you determine which vaccines are appropriate for your pet based on their environment.
