Arlington Pet Vaccinations
Protecting Pets of the Arlington Community & Beyond
Vaccinations effectively protect both you and your pets from contracting
and spreading dangerous diseases. The ASPCA considers vaccinations to
be one of the key ways you can protect your pet’s long-term health
and improve their quality of life. The dedicated team at
Arlington Pet Care Hospital agrees; it is crucial that you keep your pet up to date with their vaccinations
in order to protect their health.
If you have questions about the safety and efficacy of vaccines we may
recommend for your pet, please call

Recommended Vaccines for Your Pets
The highly trained staff at Arlington Pet Care Hospital always have your
pet’s best interests and heath in mind when we make medical recommendations.
We consider all of your pet’s unique health needs as well as their
lifestyle and behavior before making recommendations for a vaccination
schedule. We consider all of these factors to make sure that your pets
receive exactly what they need in order to stay safe and healthy.
Core vaccinations are those that are considered universal for all pets.
These vaccines prevent severe or highly transmissible diseases. Depending
on your pet’s species, our Arlington veterinary team will recommend
certain core vaccinations.
Core vaccinations for dogs include:
Core vaccinations for cats include:
- Herpes virus type I
The vaccines listed above help protect your pet, as well as you and others
in the community, from these diseases, which are considered either severe
or highly transmissible. In addition to the core vaccinations listed above,
we may make recommendations for other vaccines which may be beneficial
to your pet given certain factors like age, breed, or lifestyle.
Vaccines Are Safe
Before any vaccine is released to the broader market, they undergo rigorous
testing to ensure that it is safe to be administered. Vaccines for pets
are no different than those for humans, and they must go through the same
process. Because of the development of these vaccines, certain dangerous
diseases like distemper exist at much lower levels than during times when
the vaccine was not available. With more pets protected, diseases like
distemper are spread around less frequently. By vaccinating your pet,
you’re not only protecting them: you’re protecting yourself,
your family, and other pets and families throughout the Arlington community.
As with any medical treatment, there is a small possibility that your pet
may react to a vaccination. Common reactions include soreness or swelling
at the injection site. Less frequently, your pet may react with a fever
or inflammation. Before we make any recommendations as to a vaccination
regimen, we take your pet’s entire health picture into consideration,
as we do with all of our medical recommendations. Your pet’s health
will always be our number one priority.
If you have any questions about vaccines and what they can do for your
pet’s health, please call us at
