The Importance of Annual Pet Vaccinations

The Importance of Annual Vaccinations for Your PetA very important part of your pet’s healthcare includes annual vaccinations against potential diseases provided by our Sunset Beach, California veterinarian Dr. Sam Shenouda. Ensuring your pet has the proper vaccinations each year is a key part of caring for your pet’s health. It is also important to have your dogs and cats properly vaccinated to stop these dangerous diseases from spreading through the animal population.

Dr. Sam Shenouda and our team at Sun Surf Veterinary Hospital in Sunset Beach provides the highest level of care for your pet and vaccination is an integral part of your pet’s overall health. Dr. Shenouda has been practicing Veterinary Medicine in Long Beach, Huntington Beach, Signal Hill, and Orange County communities since the early 1990’s and believes that quality veterinary medicine should be affordable for every pet owner. He is very compassionate when treating all kinds of pets and has even performed probono surgeries for rescued pets in the area.

Why Our Pets Need Yearly Vaccinations

Dogs and cats need to get proper pet vaccines to make sure they are protected against a variety of communicable viral and bacterial diseases. These include rabies, canine parvovirus, and feline leukemia. These diseases can be harmful and even fatal if your pet is not vaccinated to protect them. Our Sunset Beach, CA veterinarian suggests an annual wellness exam for your pet, which includes a physical to ensure they are healthy before receiving their vaccinations. When we see dogs and cats in our office each year, we can properly discuss what protection your pet needs and have them vaccinated against those dangerous diseases at that time.

Suggested Vaccinations to Protect Your Pet

Soon after they are born, puppies and kittens need to be protected against dangerous diseases, or they risk getting very sick. Their annual vaccinations should start when they are very young and should be followed up with booster shots as they age. Dr. Shenouda can prepare a vaccination schedule for your pet to ensure they are protected for life.
