Solomons Vet offers Pet Vaccine Services To All Local Pet Owners

Why Should I Vaccinate My Pet?

It's every pet owner's right and responsibility to make informed decisions about their animal's health. That said, even though not every vaccine we offer at our Solomons vet facility is mandated by law, our team strongly recommends that you vaccinate your animal for a variety of illnesses. Why?

  • Vaccines are one of the best ways to prevent many harmful and potentially life-threatening illnesses (like feline leukemia, canine parainfluenza virus, and distemper).
  • Vaccinating your animal protects you, your family (as some illnesses are transmissible between pets and humans), and other animals in your community.
  • Remember: an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! Preventing illness is cheaper, easier, and far less stressful for you and your pet than treating disease.

Our Solomons Vet Honors Maryland State Law

In the State of Maryland, vaccinating your pet against rabies is required by law. Only licensed veterinarians--or a veterinary professional who is under the direct supervision of a licensed vet--can administer rabies vaccinations to dogs, cats, and ferrets. Rabies vaccine can be given as young as 3 months of age although Maryland statute does state 4 months. We usually try to give it as soon as they turn 3 months. Any additional dosages that may be required should be administered per the instructions on the vaccine label. 

Our Solomons vet staff always takes the time necessary to explain the important information you need to know (the "when" and the "what") to successfully vaccinate and protect your pet.
