Pet Vaccines Questions

How Can a Vet Decide Upon How Many Pet Vaccines a Pet Requires?

Some vaccines, like the rabies vaccine, are administered at a specified time in the life of a pet. Others will depend on an animal's age, medical history, home environment, lifestyle, and the vaccine that is used.

Are Vaccines Required to Get a Dog's License?

Yes, under New York law, dog owners must supply proof of an updated rabies vaccination before applying for a license at the local clerk's office. 

What Is the Difference between Non-Core and Core Vaccines?

Core vaccines are essential for the long-term safety and health of your pet. An example is the rabies vaccine, something that protects you as well as your pet from exposure. Non-core vaccines are suggested or recommended for pets that have a risk of getting a specific infection because of certain lifestyle chooices such as playing outdoors in certain places.

Does My Pet Need Other Vaccines?

Vaccines are helpful for a variety of reasons. If you plan to travel or place your pet in a kennel, or if the pet spends time outside or has health-related concerns, a vaccine may be recommended to offer extra protection.

  • "I can not say enough about these wonderful people. Dr. Reda is the most compassionate veterinarian I have ever met. My beloved dog passed from cancer, but they were there every step of the way with any questions or concerns, even when they were oh vacation and I was totally distraught about it, they made sure to address my concerns and never made me feel like I was crazy. There should be more people like Dr. Reda and his staff in this business. I am forever grateful for all of you."

  • "I had such a good experience when I brought in a feral cat family during a TNR mission that I returned a month later when I adopted two of the kittens. Dr. Reda is simply a wonderful veterinarian. I appreciate his well-informed, holistic approach to treatment. He & his staff take the time to give me plenty of information and answer all my questions, while doing everything they can to minimize any distress and discomfort my cats experienced during the visit. In short, if you are looking for a vet that is highly knowledgeable, accessible, and compassionate, I cannot recommend All Friends highly enough."
