Q: What vaccinations should my pet get?
A: Vaccinations in dogs and cats are typically divided into “core” and “non-core” categories. Core vaccinations are those that are required by all pets, and are determined by the risk levels in the area. Non-core vaccinations are those that are recommended for specific animals based on additional risk factors, such as those visiting boarding kennels or travelling. Your veterinarian can help you determine the best vaccination protocol for your pet based on their age and lifestyle. Don’t forget, rabies vaccinations are legally required for all dogs and cats in Ontario.
