Vaccinations

Due to the many recent discoveries and innovations in veterinary medicine, your pet can be protected against most major infectious diseases. Today, many veterinary immunizations and preventative treatments are available that did not exist a decade ago.

Vaccines are useful in preventing canine distemper, parvovirus, Bordetella, rabies, influenza and other diseases in your dog and feline leukemia, panleukopenia, rabies in your cat. Dr. Oppenheimer can assist you in deciding which preventative measures are necessary for your pet and we offer low-cost vaccination programs.

Up-to-date vaccinations play a large part in keeping your pet healthy and free from disease. However, not every pet requires the same series or frequency of vaccines. We can tailor a vaccine protocol that is specific to your pet based on his or her lifestyle.
