At Full Circle Animal Health Care, we’re dedicated to delivering comprehensive veterinary care and compassionate customer service right to your door. We want to keep your pet healthy and happy for as long as possible so you can enjoy your lives together. That’s why we recommend preventive care in the form of pet vaccinations. As a mobile veterinarian we are able to provide vaccinations for your pets in Lake County and the Northshore area of Cook County.
Why Are Pet Vaccinations So Important?
Pet vaccinations are a vital component of any veterinary care plan. Just like with human vaccines, pet vaccines provide an additional layer of protection against a number of serious and potentially-fatal diseases.
Vaccines work because they contain antigens, a substance that mimics disease-causing organisms without causing illness. When injected into your pet’s body, the antigens in the vaccine elicits a mild immune response. If your pet is exposed to the actual disease after receiving the vaccination, their immune system will be better able to recognize and combat the intruder.
For the protection of your pet, it’s best to have them immunized starting at an early age. If you’ve recently added a new puppy or kitten to your family, contact us so we can customize a vaccination schedule to meet their needs.
Personalized Pet Vaccination Protocols
We firmly believe in a personalized approach to medical care. Our vets understand that no two pets are alike so we design a vaccination protocol that provides your pet with the protection they require. Our tailor-made vaccination schedules are based on several different factors, including your pet’s:
- Health status
- Activity level
We’ll take these factors into consideration before recommending a vaccination schedule for your pet. Keep in mind that there are some core vaccines that are considered to be essential for pets. For example, in most states the rabies vaccine is required for both cats and dogs. Non-core vaccines, such as those for Lyme and Bordetella, may or may not be recommended based on your pet’s specific lifestyle.
If you’d like to learn more about core and non-core pet vaccinations or if you’re interested in making an appointment, we invite you to contact us. We can be reached at 888-426-3069.
