If you have recently welcomed a new pet into your home, whether it is a kitten, puppy or full-grown cat or dog, you should keep in mind the importance of getting your animal companion vaccinated.
Vaccines protect pets against common, easily preventable diseases. Pet vaccines are also an important aspect of human health since infected pets can give rabies to humans.
Your veterinarian in Klamath Falls has been vaccinating pets in the local area for many years and we have a reputation for being the best animal hospital Klamath Falls has to offer.

In Oregon, all dogs must be vaccinated against rabies. You may not realize that cats can get rabies too, and felines must be vaccinated in many areas of Oregon. It’s best to be safe and get your cat vaccinated for rabies regardless of which town you live in.
Consult with your vet to determine when your pets will need to come in for future rabies booster shots.
