Why At-Home Pet Vaccinations

Keeping your pet up-to-date on essential vaccines and boosters is an important part of preventative veterinary care. Many of these diseases pose serious health risks to your pet if they are exposed. We can bring vaccines to you to minimize your pet’s stress and keep them as comfortable as possible. Below is a list of common pet vaccinations for dogs and cats. Some of these are recommended for all of our furry patients, while others depend on your pet’s lifestyle.

FVRCP (Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, Panleukopenia (otherwise known as feline distemper)

Common Dog Vaccinations

Our Process

We recommend bundling your mobile pet vaccinations with your wellness exam. Once you schedule your in-home visit, our mobile veterinarian and technician will come to your home to examine your pet. Our doctor will discuss your pet’s history and determine the best vaccine protocol for your pet before administering any vaccine. We recommend at least one Pet Wellness Exam per year, when your veterinarian can also provide booster vaccines as needed (for an additional cost).  If you are interested in a pet wellness plan that bundles your pet’s preventative care services into one monthly payment, BetterVet Wellness Club may be a great option for you.
