What vaccinations does my pet need?

City ordinance requires that all dogs and cats must be vaccinated against rabies by four months of age, and then at regular intervals thereafter in accordance with rules adopted by the Texas Health and Safety Code. Rabies vaccinations must be administered by a licensed veterinarian.

There are several other vaccinations that are beneficial for your pet, but not required by law. They help protect your pet from serious diseases such as parvo, distemper, feline leukemia, etc. Please consult with your veterinarian about these beneficial vaccinations, as well as other health issues such as heartworms, internal parasites, and flea control.
