Vaccinations Save Lives

For vaccinations to be useful for pets, they need to be administered when they are still young. However, in most cases, it is advisable to let the veterinarian determine your pet’s vaccination schedule depending on the type of vaccine, the age of the pet, environment, medical history, and the pet’s lifestyle.

Puppies

Puppies mostly receive antibodies from their mothers while they nurse. As soon as the puppy is six to eight weeks old, our veterinarian will administer a series of vaccinations, with a minimum of three vaccinations at intervals of three to four weeks. The last should be at sixteen weeks. When it comes to adult dogs, they can receive certain vaccines for tick prevention and flea prevention annually and others every three years.

Kittens

Kittens also receive antibodies through the milk that their mothers produce if the cat has a healthy immune system. Our veterinarian can start administering vaccines at six to eight weeks of age and with intervals of three to four weeks until the kitten is sixteen weeks old.

Pet Vaccinations at Augusta Animal Clinic

Vaccinations are meant to stimulate your pet’s immune system mildly and to protect the animal from diseases such as Lyme disease. Despite some risks associated with immunizing your pet, failure to do so could lead to catastrophic health issues and even death. Visit us at Augusta Animal Clinic in Indianapolis, IN, or call us today at (317) 291-4553 to schedule a pet vaccination appointment for your furry friend.

I am beyond pleased with our experience at Augusta Animal Clinic. We made the decision to switch vets due to our German Shepherd's symptoms not subsiding after repeated visits. I called Augusta to inquire about availability and Lisa was able to promptly schedule an appointment. When we arrived, everyone was extremely friendly, professional, and courteous. Our dog gets highly anxious at the vet, but Dr. Dave was extremely patient and understanding and put him at ease. We knew immediately from the questions he asked that he was extremely knowledgable and highly experienced. He displayed genuine care for our concerns and was able to quickly provide a diagnosis and treatment plan. We couldn't be happier with our decision to switch vets and look forward to working with them again. I cannot recommend Augusta enough!

I had a diabetic cat with allergies. I have gone to multiple vets over the years and have more experience than most do with vets because mine was special needs. Dr Dave is the best. The reality of vet care is that it is expensive, but he never tried to push me to get procedures/medicines etc. Always gave various options and let me know his professional opinion and then we work together to figure out what was best for my cat. This clinic is the best because you always get consistent care (all the staff have been there for years and are very experienced), can always get an appt that day if you need, and Dr Dave understands not just the medical needs of your pet, but also how to talk to and work with the people who own the pets.
