At Wascana Animal Hospital, our veterinarians are all about taking a proactive approach to your pet’s health - we want to prevent disease whenever possible! Vaccination is one of the ways that we can help protect your pet family members. Some vaccines are considered “core” vaccines. Core vaccines are recommended for all of our patients (including indoor-only pets) because they protect against diseases that are prevalent in our area or are associated with very high risk should a patient become infected. For all vaccinations (including boosters) given at our hospital, our veterinarians will perform a wellness exam on your pet prior to administering any vaccinations. This examination allows us to make sure your pet is healthy enough to be vaccinated and to identify any additional medical concerns that may be present. Our veterinarians will also discuss deworming and other parasite preventatives depending on the season, they will make any appropriate nutritional or dental recommendations, and they will address any specific concerns you may have regarding your pet family member’s health, in addition to also administering the vaccine.
