Vaccinating your pet is more important than you think.
Many of the diseases that can affect dogs and cats are preventable through proper pet vaccinations. Did you know that all residents living within the cities of Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, and Henderson are by law required to license their pets?
People residing in the unincorporated area of Clark County are no longer required to have a pet license. In order to obtain a license for your pet you must have a current Rabies certificate. Other vaccines are strongly recommended for the protection and health of your pet as well as other animals they may come in contact with, i.e. grooming and boarding facilities, dog parks, etc.
Vaccines offer protection against major viral and bacterial diseases that cats and dogs may be exposed to. Your veterinarian will set up a vaccination program for your pet to provide protection for the diseases of concern in your area. Kittens and puppies often require an initial vaccination with follow-up booster vaccines to ensure they are well protected against diseases.
Following a proper vaccination schedule will help to ensure that you are doing your part to keep your new friend healthy. Additionally, we recommend that all dogs and cats be placed on a monthly parasite preventative and be tested bi-annually for parasites.
