The health and safety of your pet is our primary concern. We take great pride in the care and services provided by our staff and use high quality vaccines which help reduce the risk of vaccine reaction. However, there is always a chance of vaccine reaction, even in pets which have never experienced an adverse reaction in the past. A description of types of vaccine reactions and the importance of immediate steps to take can be found on the Vaccine Reactions & Post Vaccine Care tab under our Resources page.
In an effort to provide the best means possible for your pet's protection against certain viruses/disease, HEART has structured its vaccination protocols in accordance with pharmaceutical manufacturer recommendations and warranties, in compliance with specific ordinances, regulations and laws, and based upon documented trial studies and specific guidelines and recommendations outlined by the American Veterinary Medical Board, American Veterinary Medical Association, American Animal Hospital Association, American Association of Feline Practitioners, and the California Veterinary Medical Board.
WE CAN NOT VACCINATE A PET WHICH:
* HAS EVER HAD AN ADVERSE REACTION TO A VACCINE
* HAS SHOWN ANY SIGN OF ILLNESS WITHIN TWO WEEKS PRIOR TO OUR CLINIC
* IS NURSING PUPPIES OR KITTENS
* MIGHT BE PREGNANT
ALL PETS ADOPTED FROM SHELTERS OR RESCUE ORGANIZATIONS SHOULD RECEIVE THE APPROPRIATE VACCINE BOOSTERS 1 MONTH AFTER ADOPTION.
HEART's recommendations for vaccinations should be used as a general guideline for their pets' vaccine needs. Certain guidelines may vary depending on environment, level of exposure to other animals, the medical history of your pet, and other important factors.
Studies have proven that PETS WHICH RECEIVE ONE SET OF EACH OF THE RECOMMENDED VACCINES BETWEEN THE AGE OF 14 TO 16 WEEKS OLD, whether it be the 1st, 2nd or 3rd set in the initial "puppy" or "kitten" series, achieve the best immunity to those viruses for which they have been vaccinated.
IF YOUR PET HAS EVERN EXPERIENCED AN ADVERSE REACTION TO A VACCINE, it is strongly recommended that you take your pet to your regular veterinarian to receive any needed vaccinations as it will require pre-vaccine medication and possibly post-vaccine medication, as well as observation and monitoring for several hours after receiving its vaccinations. Additionally, if your pet absolutely needs multiple vaccinations, it should only receive one vaccine at a time, waiting at least 2 weeks between vaccinations to help reduce the risk of vaccine reaction.
ONCE YOUR PET HAS BEEN VACCINATED, MAKE SURE IT CAN BE OBSERVED FOR A MINIMUM OF 24 - 48 HOURS so that any possible adverse reaction to the vaccine can be quickly noticed and attended to accordingly. As such, make sure that cats are kept indoors for at least 24 - 48 hours post vaccination.
In an effort to minimize the risk of COVID-19, we no longer interact with pet owners at our clinics. All pet histories, questions, etc., are addressed by email and/or phone in advance of each clinic. All transactions are done through our website, and payment for services to be rendered must be paid in full 72 hours in advance of the respective mobile clinic you are attending. No cash or other form of payment will be accepted at the clinic.
Our mobile drive-thru clinics offer low-cost VACCINATIONS, DE-WORMINGS, ANAL GLAND EXPRESSIONS, and FLEA & TICK CONTROL MEDICATION. Cursory exams are provided with Vaccinations. Flea & Tick Control Medication is only sold to those whose pets are receiving vaccinations. We offer Nail Trims on a very limited basis due to the time involved in providing this service (usually a nail trim maximum of 5 pets per clinic).

Advice from a professional can help keep your pets safe.
It is always recommended that your pet have regular check-ups by your regular veterinarian to monitor your pet's health and to discuss other important preventive health care.
There is no guarantee of preventing a pet, or a human for that matter, from contracting disease. HOWEVER, there are solid measures that pet owners can take to tremendously decrease the risk to both their pet and themselves. Certain diseases, viruses, and parasites such as Rabies,...
Learning more about preventive healthcare can save your pet's life.
It is important that pet owners learn about the type of vaccines which will be most beneficial for their pets. The pet's age, health, vaccination history, geographics, environmental exposure, and other important factors play an important role to determine the proper vaccines for your pet and the frequency of their administration.
"Over-vaccinating" or "Under-vaccinating" can both pose a health risk to your pet. Your...
