Why Should I Vaccinate My Pet?

Pet vaccinations are very similar to human vaccinations because they are used to help build up your pet’s immunity to preventable diseases. Once your pet is vaccinated, they may be completely immune and unaffected by a certain disease, or the infection won’t be as severe. Some diseases can have harsh effects on your pet, and potentially be passed on to you and your family as well. The most ideal option for your pet’s health and your finances is to have your pet vaccinated with the appropriate cat or dog vaccinations and staying up to date on booster shots as they continue to grow.

Essential Vaccines for Dogs and Cats

Core vaccinations are the vital vaccines recommended for dogs and cats. These vaccines are specific to each species and are recommended regardless of lifestyle. Other vaccines are non-core or optional vaccines that may be recommended by your veterinarian to provide additional protection according to your pet’s lifestyle. The core vaccines highly recommended by the Bridgewater team are as follows:

  • Dog Vaccinations


    Canine Distemper

  • Cat Receiving A Vaccine


    Herpes Virus
    Feline Panleukopenia

Individualized Vaccination Schedules

When you bring your dog or cat in for their annual wellness exam, we will assess them to ensure they are healthy and can be safely vaccinated. Your veterinarian may recommend certain vaccines for your pet according to their age and lifestyle. Most puppies and kittens receive their initial vaccinations beginning when they are 8-12 weeks of age with additional boosters in the following weeks. Pets will need booster vaccines every one to three years later to maintain their protection. At Bridgewater Veterinary Hospital we acknowledge that no two pets are alike, which is why our veterinarians can create a vaccination schedule specific to them. In some circumstances we titer vaccines rather than booster them based upon your pets needs.
