Pet Vaccinations in Louisville, KY
At Seneca Animal Hospital in Louisville, KY, we believe that one of the most important aspects of caring for your pet’s health is vaccinating them against possible diseases. Various conditions affect our pets, and other animals, so proper vaccination is vital to protecting them from many types of illnesses.
While all dogs and cats should receive regular vaccines to protect them from contagious diseases, this does not mean your pet needs every vaccine available. After considering your pet’s lifestyle, exposure to other animals, and other health factors, our veterinarians will recommend what vaccines should be administered.
The use of vaccines is essential to preventative medicine. Several infectious diseases in pets, including rabies, hepatitis, parvovirus, bordetella, and Lyme disease, can be prevented through vaccination. In theory, all dogs and cats should begin getting pet immunizations when they are pups or kittens and continue getting them up until they are senior citizens.

Our goal is to provide the highest level of care for your pet, and vaccinations are integral to your pet’s overall health.
