Pet Immunization & Vaccines in Branford
Prevent Disease through Immunization
At Mill Pond, we know that your pet’s health is important to you. That’s why we offer a variety of important disease-preventing vaccines to ensure they remain illness-free for years to come. Whether you have a new puppy or an elderly cat, we can recommend the right vaccines with your pet’s age, condition, and health in mind.
The Benefits of Pet Vaccines
Vaccines can lessen or prevent many diseases your pet may contract by creating an immunity to the disease. Pet vaccination in Branford is extremely important as it protects pets from the highly contagious diseases they can get though simple contact with other dogs, cats, or wildlife, especially in high-traffic areas like parks, forests, beaches, and grooming facilities. These diseases can be expensive to treat and may even be fatal. It is also possible that they may be zoonotic – able to spread from pets to people – which poses a threat to you and your family.
There are some patients that are not able to tolerate vaccinations due to immune-mediated diseases, pre-existing infections – such as FIV infection – or a severe allergy to the vaccine. For these patients, we offer vaccination titers.
Titers use a sample of the patient’s blood and analyze the level of antibody present, determining if your pet is protected. A titer can help reduce some potential risk factors for pets that can’t be vaccinated. An adequate titer does not guarantee protection, but our veterinarians will help determine the best way possible to keep your pet heathy. On a yearly basis, we will discuss your pet’s lifestyle and risk factors to help avoid potential dangers.
