Prevention and Protection: Why Pet Vaccinations Are Important

Perhaps you feel unsure about pet vaccinations—are they truly safe? Do they really work? Our veterinarians in Clifton Park strongly recommend vaccines for all patients, but we also believe that each pet must be treated as an individual with their own unique set of needs. This means that we aim for flexibility when deciding what treatments are best for pets.

Nonetheless, vaccines are a remarkably effective means of protecting pets from disease. They train the immune system to recognize and fight off intrusive viruses, preventing disease from having a chance to develop in the body.

Canine and Feline Vaccines

Pet vaccinations must be administered on a regular schedule to remain effective. We carry vaccines for dogs and cats, because they can both be vulnerable to certain types of diseases. Ideally, your pet should receive their first vaccination at approximately 6 to 8 weeks old. Our vaccines include:


  • Rabies
  • Distemper/Parvo combo (DHPP)
  • Lyme
  • Leptospirosis
  • Bordetella
  • Canine influenza


  • Rabies
  • Feline Distemper (FVRCP)
  • Feline Leukemia (FeLV)

Choosing the Best Vaccines for Your Pet

During your appointment, we'll help you decide which vaccines will be needed to protect your pet from diseases that may be present in their environment. By understanding your pet's lifestyle, we can plan their vaccination schedule accordingly and give them a greater chance of living the longest, healthiest life possible.
