Vaccinations prevent common diseases and protect your pet's health. Our animal hospital is designed to make it easy and convenient to get your pet the care and protection he needs. A veterinarian on our team is here to provide your pet veterinary care so that he can get and stay healthy. Your pet's vaccinations can be completed along with a cat exam that reassures you that your pet is healthy or spots some trouble areas you could work on together. We of Crosspointe Animal Hospital in Fairfax Station, VA, hope to keep our pet patients healthy and fit.
Benefits of Vaccinating Your Cat
Here are some of the benefits of vaccinating your pet:
Better Health and a Longer Life
Vaccines for pets work the same way that vaccines for humans do. They prevent common and contagious illnesses from spreading and ensure that your cat won't become sick from a devastating disease. Your cat could be exposed to illnesses like distemper or even rabies. It only takes a second for another animal to bite or infect your pet. When your pet's vaccines are up to date, you remove the risk of him catching some of the most devastating pet illnesses, resulting in better health and a longer life.
Easy Travel and Boarding
If you are heading to a hotel, taking a plane, or planning on boarding your pet, you might need to show proof of your pet's vaccinations to do so. Some facilities also require proof of vaccinations before your pet can enter, so being up to date can prevent a last-minute scramble or an inconvenient last-minute vet visit.
Reduce Risk for Other Pets and Family Members
Not all pet illnesses can be transferred to other species or to humans, but some can be. If you have other pets that are not vaccinated, then a disease could spread rapidly through your own home, making everyone ill and triggering soaring veterinary bills. Very old pets, or those with chronic health problems will be particularly at risk if they are not vaccinated.
