Prevent and Protect with Pet Vaccinations

Like you, our team wants to keep your pet as safe as possible against illness. Rabies, parvovirus, and distemper are just a few such diseases that can threaten our animal companions' health (and lives). At Animal Hospital of Lewisville, we offer vaccines as the strongest line of defense against infection, for both pets and humans.

Vaccines are an easy way to protect your pet. We can help.

How Vaccines Work

Vaccines bolster your pet’s immune system by helping it recognize—and sometimes eradicate—harmful infections. Vaccines contain antigens that stimulate the immune system into producing antibodies, which work to prevent disease and keep your pet healthy.

Why Start Vaccinating Early?

Puppies and kittens should start receiving their vaccinations between 6-8 weeks of age. At this time in their development, any immunity boost from their mother's milk starts to wear off, which leaves them vulnerable to infection.

Another advantage of vaccinating your pet when they're young is the additional time they will have to build up immunity for a longer, healthier life. When you visit our animal hospital, we'll plot out a custom vaccination plan specifically for your pet so they can receive the protection they need.
