Being a good pet owner means doing everything you can to help your furry family member enjoy as many healthy years as possible. And one of the best ways to do that is by having them vaccinated. Pet vaccines are safe and highly effective at safeguarding dogs and cats against many of the potentially devastating diseases they are most likely to encounter.

At Heritage Animal Hospital, we administer pet vaccinations in Sterling, Virginia, and we believe that they are essential to the long-term health of companion animals. Whether you have a brand-new puppy or kitten or an older pet who needs a booster, we’ll help you get (or keep) them on a practical and easy-to-understand vaccination schedule.

Recommended Pet Vaccines

In Virginia, the Rabies vaccine is required by law for all dogs and cats and must be administered before the animal is four months old. While this is the only vaccine mandated by law, several others are equally important. Core vaccines - including ones for things like parvovirus and feline calicivirus - are recommended for all pets.

Non-core vaccines, such as Bordetella and Lyme Disease, are not necessary for all animals. Instead, they are recommended based on factors like whether your cat goes outside or your dog frequents dog parks, doggy daycare centers, or boarding facilities. Our veterinarian will ask you several questions to determine which vaccinations your pet needs. The goal is to provide the protection they need without over-vaccinating them for diseases they are unlikely to encounter.
