Like humans, vaccines for your pet help prevent illness and the spread of disease. The AVMA considers vaccinations to be one of the key ways to keep your pets happy and healthy throughout their lives. When you bring your pet to Buckner Animal Clinic, we’ll work with you to understand your pet’s needs and medical history before we recommend which vaccinations are best for your pet.
The short answer to this question is: it depends. Our Dallas veterinarians will take many factors into consideration, like age, breed, sex, and lifestyle, before recommending a vaccination regimen that is right for your pet. Not all pets require the same vaccinations, and we’ll be sure to give your pet the vaccinations they personally need.
Core vaccinations are considered universally necessary based on factors like exposure risk, disease severity, or if a disease is transmissible to humans.

Core Vaccinations for Cats
Feline herpes virus type I
Our Dallas veterinarians may recommend other, non-core vaccinations depending on the needs of your pet.
For quick and affordable access to vaccines for all pets in the Dallas community, we offer a weekly vaccine clinic. Bring your pet to the clinic for a variety of vaccination options. We can also help with fecal exams, heartworm prevention service, microchipping, nail trimming, and anal glad expression. Other services will require an appointment with one of our veterinarians, but we’re happy to help you make that appointment during clinic hours. Just step inside to speak to our receptionist to book an appointment.
Every Wednesday: 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM
Every Friday: 10: 00 AM – 3:00 PM
The first Saturday of every month: 8:00 AM – 3:00 PM
We ask that visitors to our clinic follow specific guidelines in order for us to be able to serve all pets.
