Our veterinarians consider various factors, including your pet’s lifestyle, environment, and medical history, to create a vaccination schedule that aligns with their specific needs.

Benefits of Pet Vaccinations

Disease Prevention
Vaccinations provide essential immunity, safeguarding your pet against a range of preventable diseases.

Public Health
Certain vaccinations not only protect your pet but also contribute to public health by preventing the spread of contagious diseases.

Investing in vaccinations is a cost-effective way to avoid expensive treatments for diseases that can be easily prevented.

Benefits of Titers

Tailored Vaccination Protocols
Titers help us customize vaccination schedules based on your pet’s individual immunity levels, avoiding unnecessary vaccinations.

Reduced Over-Vaccination Risk
We can minimize the risk of over-vaccination and potential adverse reactions by assessing antibody levels.

Understanding Titers in Pet Health

Titers are blood tests that measure the presence and concentration of specific antibodies in your pet’s system. At Westside Pet Hospital, we utilize titers strategically to assess the effectiveness of previous vaccinations and determine the necessity for booster shots.

When to Consider Pet Vaccinations and Titers

Regular vaccinations are crucial for pets of all ages, providing protection from various diseases. Titers are particularly beneficial for assessing the effectiveness of vaccinations, especially for older pets or those with unique health considerations.
