IMPORTANT NOTE: Most animals experience mild reactions when their immune system is stimulated by a vaccine, but it is important to be aware that in more rare instances, an animal may have a moderate to severe reaction which should be evaluated by a veterinarian. The Atascadero Pet Hospital and Emergency Center is open 24 hours a day and can be reached at 805-466-3880 in the event your pet requires medical attention after receiving vaccines.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Ideally puppies and kittens should remain with their mothers in a sheltered environment until 8 weeks of age. While some vaccines may be labeled for a younger age, vaccinations given before 8 weeks of age may not offer puppies and kittens full protection because the presence of maternal antibodies is known to interfere with the development of active immunity.
