Dog and Cat Vaccinations in Virginia-Highland, GA

Cat and dog vaccinations protect your pet for sure, but did you know they can also help keep your human family safe? Some diseases that pets can contract are zoonotic, meaning they can spread between animals and people. At The Village Vets Virginia-Highland, we believe every pet deserves a long and happy life with you. That’s why we offer safe, effective vaccines for a lifetime of protection.

Vaccines We Offer & When Your Pet Needs Them

Puppies and kittens begin with a series of vaccinations in their first year of life that helps to build their immunity. After their first year, they’ll need boosters to maintain their resistance. Cat and dog vaccinations are either “core” (highly recommended for all pets) or “noncore” (recommended for pets at risk). At The Village Vets, we follow AAHA and AAFP guidelines to give your pet the best protection with the least risk of over-vaccination.
