When Does My Pet Need Vaccinations?

Puppies and kittens start on a series of vaccinations during their first year of life. This series builds their immunity and prepares them for a healthier future. After their first year, adult pets receive boosters throughout their life. Most of our cat and dog vaccinations are one-year vaccines, but some can be three-year. As pets age, they may not need the same vaccines they needed in their youth. We continually evaluate your pet’s lifestyle so they only ever receive the vaccinations they truly need to stay healthy.
