Mansfield Pet Vaccinations
Protect Your Pet & the Community
The ASPCA considers vaccinations to be one of the best ways to keep your pet happy and healthy. Vaccinations help prevent your pet from contracting diseases and spreading it to other pets in the community. At the Mansfield Animal Clinic, we’ll take the time to understand your pet’s needs and risk factors before recommending a vaccine regimen for your pet. We consider vaccines to be an essential part of preventative medicine, something which our Mansfield veterinary professionals take very seriously. Being able to prevent diseases before it happens can have a meaningful impact on your pet’s quality of life.

Core Vaccinations for Your Pets
For most pets, there is a standard list of “core vaccines” that your pet needs to keep them happy and healthy throughout their lives. As part of your pet’s preventative medicine plan, our Mansfield veterinary team may also recommend other vaccinations, depending on your pet’s medical history and risk factors, which will also help protect them from contracting and spreading disease. Not all pets require the same vaccinations, so we take our time to consider what will best benefit your pet for the long term.
Core vaccinations for cats include:
- Feline calicivirus
- Feline herpes virus type I
Core vaccines for dogs include:
- Canine parvovirus
- Canine hepatitis
Vaccines for your pets are perfectly safe. Like vaccinations made for humans, vaccines for pets must undergo rigorous testing and scrutiny before being distributed to the population. Even though some diseases, such as distemper in dogs, occur less frequently today, it is still important for you to vaccinate your pet against these diseases. The reason why these diseases occur less frequently is because pets have been vaccinated against these diseases, making them much less likely to contract and spread these illnesses. By protecting your pet with vaccinations, you’re also protecting the pet community in Mansfield.
Reactions to vaccinations are possible but not very common due to the rigorous testing that these medicines undergo before hitting the market. One of the most common reactions to vaccines for pets is swelling or soreness at the vaccination site. More uncommon reactions include a fever or inflammation. Our Mansfield veterinary team will take into consideration your pet’s health and medical history before making a recommendation on a vaccine regimen to pair with your pet’s preventative medicine program. We take your pet’s health and wellbeing very seriously, and anything we recommend is in the service of ensuring that your pet lives a long, healthy life. Vaccines can dramatically improve your pet’s quality of life.
