Pet Vaccinations in Oklahoma City: Dog Sits in Owner's Lap

Pet Vaccinations Keep Diseases Under Control

Vaccines protect your pet from unseen dangers and allow them to live longer, healthier lives. Furthermore, it’s important to be conscious of the various diseases that could be lurking outside your door, and what you can do to safeguard your pet against them. Hefner Road Animal Hospital carries pet vaccinations for a wide range of animal diseases and can give your pet a custom vaccine plan that suits them best.

Why Pets Should Be Vaccinated at an Early Age

Since puppies' and kittens' immune systems are still developing, their disease resistance is low. Additionally, they often have intestinal parasites, which should be treated right away to prevent them from spreading to other animals (and in some cases, people). Treating and vaccinating your pet early gives them time to build up their immune systems and become much more resistant to illness. Ask your veterinarian about creating a vaccination timeline to keep your pet on track.

Puppy and Kitten Vaccine Packages

We offer affordable vaccine packages for puppies and kittens to help our clients know what their pet is receiving, and when they’ll need to see us for their next round of vaccines.

Know Your Pet’s Disease Threats

Rabies: Rabies is a viral disease that attacks the central nervous system, including the brain. It also progresses very quickly, making it one of the most fatal diseases your pet can get. Foxes, coyotes, raccoons, skunks, and bats are known to carry rabies.

Distemper: Canine distemper affects the respiratory system and can also be deadly if it isn’t treated right away. Feline distemper is also known as panleukopenia and affects the intestines.

Parvovirus: Canine parvovirus (or parvo) is extremely contagious among animals, causing symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, lack of appetite, and weight loss. If your puppy shows any of these signs, seek treatment for them immediately.

Leptospirosis: Leptospirosis is caused by bacteria found in damp soil and standing water. It is a zoonotic disease, meaning humans can also become infected. Clinical signs include fever, muscle soreness, dehydration, lethargy, and vomiting.

Leukemia: Cats that go outside are at a much higher risk for leukemia, which is often carried by stray or feral cats. This disease damages the immune system and may even lead to cancer.

Hefner Road is really a good place!  We've been taking our animals there for a long time, they treat you and your furry friend real nice.

Dr Purvis & his staff are wonderful! He has been my doggie doctor since adopting 2 rescues in 2000! They are attentive to your animal's needs and show them so much love! Dr. Purvis helped me make painful decisions when my Estee-girl had an inoperable cancer and his loving staff held her with me when it was time to say good-bye. Lucy loves boarding and thinks of HRAH as her second home. Thank you Dr. P & Staff

Evie loves coming to see you!  When she knows we are going for a ride, she wants to stop and come into the office!

We have been with Dr. Purvis around 20 years and wouldn't think of using any other vet.  He and the staff are caring, friendly and always professional.  We also use the grooming facility monthly. The Pet Resort is the best in town!

I have trusted the care of one spoiled schnauzer and two cats to HRAH for over 10 years.  Dr. Purvis and the entire staff at HRAH are fantastic!  They have great customer service and offer exceptional animal care.  Our schnauzer attends daycare during the workweek and I feel extremely fortunate to have such a competent and caring group available for her.

Enjoyed my experience there. Dr. Cooper and his team were friendly and took care of my puppy. Very affordable, definitely recommend.

I called HRAH because my former vet and my groomer kept telling me that my bichon had fleas and that's why she was literally scratching holes into herself. I knew she didn't have fleas and suspected it was allergies. I was so relieved that I finally found a vet who knew immediately that the problem was "bichon skin" and NOT fleas! I especially appreciated that the exam room was sparkling clean and didn't stink like nasty dirty pet odor. Very impressed---they are my new vet!

Theresa

Best place for our sweet babies! That Jacklyn is so caring and loves our babies as much as we do!

Lois

Very nice and accommodating. Staff is very friendly. They helped my doggie feel better on the same day I called to make an appt. Love them!
