Preventative Veterinary Medicine & Vaccinations in Katy

Long Term Care for Happy, Healthy Lives

Pet Medical Center of Katy focuses on a preventative approach to your pet’s wellbeing. We believe that preventative care is one of the best things that you can do for your pet to give them a long and happy life. Our approach seeks to prevent diseases and illnesses before they occur as it’s much easier than treating a disease once it takes hold. We believe that regular checkups and vaccinations are two of the most important elements of preventative care that can greatly improve your pet’s quality of life. With preventative medicine at Pet Medical Center of Katy, your pet can enjoy their time by your side for many years to come.

Personalized Care for Your Pet’s Needs

At Pet Medical Center of Katy, we understand that every pet is unique. Your pet, for example, has a different set of needs or risk factors than your neighbor’s pet. Our Katy veterinarians will get to know your pet from nose to tail before they develop a preventative care plan tailored to their specifics.

Factors we take into consideration for your pet’s preventative care plan include:

  • Age
  • Breed
  • Behavior
  • Diet
  • Lifestyle
  • Weight

We look at these factors, as well as things like preexisting conditions or activity levels, and carefully construct an approach that will work best for your pet. We consider all of your pet’s unique health needs to make sure they receive exactly what they need in order to stay safe and healthy.

Vaccinating Your Pet

Vaccinations are effective at preventing your pet from contracting and spreading dangerous diseases. There are certain vaccines, called core vaccinations, which are considered universal for all pets. These vaccines were developed to prevent diseases which are considered severe or highly transmissible.

Core vaccinations for dogs include:

  • Parvovirus
  • Distemper
  • Rabies
  • Hepatitis
  • Bordetella
  • Flu
  • Lepto

Core vaccinations for cats include:

  • Calicivirus
  • Rabies
  • Herpes virus type I
  • Panleukopenia
  • Bordetella

Not only do the vaccines listed above help protect your pet, but they also protect other pets in the local community from these diseases. We also require both bordetella and the flu vaccines for our boarding services. Certain illnesses, like distemper, exist at a much lower level than they historically did because of widespread vaccinations. By vaccinating your pet, you’re taking an active role in protecting you, your family, and the other pets and families of the Katy community.

If you have questions about vaccines or preventative care more generally, please contact us online or call us at (281) 823-8288.
