Prevent and Protect with Pet Vaccinations

Like you, our team wants to keep your pet as safe as possible against illness. Rabies, parvovirus, and distemper are just a few such diseases that can threaten our animal companions' health (and lives). At Animal Hospital of Lewisville, we offer vaccines as the strongest line of defense against infection, for both pets and humans.

Vaccines are an easy way to protect your pet. We can help.

How Vaccines Work

Vaccines bolster your pet’s immune system by helping it recognize—and sometimes eradicate—harmful infections. Vaccines contain antigens that stimulate the immune system into producing antibodies, which work to prevent disease and keep your pet healthy.

The vets and staff are second to none. They treat all of our animals like their own. In addition, we are always done super quickly! They are punctual but offer the best and most thorough care possible. I never feel like my questions don’t matter! We work primarily with Dr. Journell and she’s the best!

- Joanna M

Dr. Journell is seriously the best. She kept our baby bear happy and strong for two years after he was diagnosed with heart failure. She understood what was right for him and what was to much for his body to handle. My husband and I love all the staff as well, always friendly and understanding.

- Casey J

The friendliest staff, cleanest facilities & competent, caring vets. My dog is as excited to come here as he is to go to the dog park, which makes my life much easier than if he was nervous and scared and I had to drag him there.

Why Start Vaccinating Early?

Puppies and kittens should start receiving their vaccinations between 6-8 weeks of age. At this time in their development, any immunity boost from their mother's milk starts to wear off, which leaves them vulnerable to infection.

Another advantage of vaccinating your pet when they're young is the additional time they will have to build up immunity for a longer, healthier life. When you visit our animal hospital, we'll plot out a custom vaccination plan specifically for your pet so they can receive the protection they need.
