Disease Prevention for Your Pets with Personalized Dog & Cat Vaccination Plans


Protection against contagious diseases is critical for all pets. The professionals at Crescenta Valley Veterinary Hospital create comprehensive wellness plans for every pet, including preventive care and vaccinations. We access the most current veterinary research in disease prevention, as well as the meticulous standards of the American Animal Hospital Association, to determine your pet’s specific needs.

Your Pet’s Vaccination Plan

Vaccination schedules are individually tailored based on your pet’s activities and lifestyle to ensure his or her maximum safety and protection. For pet owners with concerns regarding over-vaccination, vaccine titers are available.

Vaccine decisions are made on an individual basis for each of your companion animals. We take into consideration the age, breed, lifestyle, and travel habits of your pet, as well as your needs and plans. We tailor a unique immunization program that gives optimum protection from disease.

The vaccine schedule for your pets will reflect their specific needs and overall health. Our veterinarians address all questions and concerns regarding vaccinations at every wellness visit.

Rattlesnake Vaccine

Living in the foothills, we recommend the rattlesnake vaccine for most dogs. This vaccine reduces the impact of snakebite and helps create an immunity that will protect your dog against the most severe effects of rattlesnake venom.

Any dog over four months of age is a good candidate for rattlesnake vaccine. Rattlesnake bites are common in pets and exposure can occur at home as well as walking, hiking, camping, or hunting.

Rattlesnake vaccine is laboratory tested and government approved. Side effects are rare and typically mild, but even the most severe side effect is easier to treat than a rattlesnake bite.
