Vaccinations Improve Your Pet’s Longevity and Quality of Life

Getting your pet’s vaccinations on schedule is one of the most loving things you can do as a pet owner. That is because vaccinations help prevent your pet from developing a serious illness that could cause poor life quality or death. Bringing your pet in for scheduled shots to our clinic in Newport Beach, CA, also reduce the risk of spreading preventable illnesses to other animals.

Vaccination strategies – core and non-core

Determining the best vaccination strategy for each pet is part of our service to clients at Newport Center Animal Hospital. This includes both core and non-core vaccines. Core vaccines are those that are vital to your pet’s health and may be required by law. Non-core vaccines are those we may recommend based on your pet’s unique risk factors and lifestyle. We will make specific recommendations after interviewing you and examining your pet.
