Can Vaccines Be Harmful for Pets?

Most pets do not have harmful reactions to their vaccines. However, we do aim to reduce risks in any way we can. Therefore, we give dogs and cats only what they need for their lifestyle and personal disease risks. Dr. Guidry is always happy to sit down and talk with you at length about our pet vaccinations policy before vaccinating your pet.

Additionally, we always monitor AAHA vaccination guidelines for updates, so we know that we’re giving your pet the best possible care.
