Prevention is the best medicine! Just like children, dogs and cats need vaccinations to ward off dangerous diseases.
Protection with vaccines should begin early when they are puppies and kittens, and then be supplemented with boosters as they become adults.
Palo Verde Pet Clinic believes preventive medicine is the best way to keep a pet healthy and happy while also limiting the lifetime cost of care.
Regardless of whether your pet is an indoor loving cat or any outdoor loving dog, we recommend starting vaccinations at 6-8 weeks of age and following up with regular boosters. Below are the vaccinations we recommend for your pet.
dog vaccinations help prevent:
Bordetella (kennel cough)
cat vaccinations help prevent:
Feline leukemia (FeLV)

for dogs and cats
Most puppies and kittens are not born with immunity to diseases. They receive immunity from their mother during the first few days of life. This immunity is designed to last only long enough for the young animals to start making their own antibodies.
Vaccines help protect your dog or cat from common diseases, which is a critical part of caring for your pet.
Mosquitoes, fleas, and ticks all carry diseases that can be easily spread to your dog or cat and cause devastating health issues. With the help of our caring and experienced veterinary staff, it’s easy to stay up-to-date on your pet’s vaccines and preventative medication.
