At Burbank Pet Hospital, we steadfastly advocate for preventive care as an effective way to keep common diseases and disorders from causing health issues in the first place.
Combined with proper nutrition and routine exams, pet vaccinations and parasite prevention form the foundation of routine healthcare for your animal.
Preventive care offers your pet the best chance at a long, healthy life. Our team is committed to working with you to create a custom preventive care plan for your cat or dog, tailored to their specific needs.
When it comes to protecting your furry companion from a range of contagious diseases that can often turn serious, current dog and cat vaccinations are essential.
