If it is time to take your dog or cat for its pet vaccinations near Cheshire, CT one of our surrounding areas that you may want to consider making a stronger commitment to Apple Valley Veterinary.
Cheshire, CT is ranked among the top small towns in the state and is known as the "bedding plant capital." It's also a great place to raise a pet with its strong community. One of the things that makes Cheshire a great town is that cares about the health and well being of its people as well as its pets, and requires dogs over six months old to be licensed. In order to do this, you will need to have proof from your veterinarian that they are up to date on his or her rabies vaccination and indicate whether they are spayed or neutered. Dog licenses also carry a fee of $8 per year if the pet is spayed or neutered, and $19 annually if they are not.
At Apple Valley Veterinarians in Plantsville, CT, we have been a full-service veterinarian to both dogs and cats, helping to make sure pet owners are able to be responsible for caring for his or her pet's health, and by doing so making sure their community stays healthy as well. Whether that means providing pet vaccinations, including rabies shots, or spaying or neutering to control the pet population or provide a wide range of other services, our highly experienced vets are ready to provide the medical care your pet needs.
While keeping up with the rabies vaccination may be a top priority for the town of Cheshire for obvious reasons, there are many other necessary vaccinations that your pet needs in order to stay healthy. If you have a dog, they will also need various core vaccines including ones to prevent parvovirus, distemper, and canine hepatitis in addition to rabies. We also provide popular non-core vaccine such as bordetella and others for dogs that are at risk of being exposed or who receive services such as grooming or boarding that require these vaccines.
Cats and kittens have many required core vaccines which include a rabies vaccine, a feline distemper vaccine, a feline calicivirus, and feline herpes type I. Some cat owners may also choose to get vaccines that will protect his or her pets from bordetella, chylamydophila felis, and feline immunodeficiency virus. Exactly which pet vaccines are appropriate for your cat is a decision that is best made with the help of your veterinarian. At Apple Valley Veterinarians our vets have decades of experience taking care of the health needs of cats and kittens and will help you make the right decision for your pet.
