The importance of vaccinations in your pet’s health care plan cannot be understated. Modern vaccination science goes far beyond a rabies and distemper shot. Today, vaccines can protect your pet from many illnesses:
For Cats: feline leukemia, respiratory diseases, and rabies
For Dogs: canine distemper, rabies, parvovirus, respiratory diseases, kennel cough (Bordetella), leptospirosis, Lyme disease, canine influenza, and more
How often your pet needs to be vaccinated depends on the individual animal. Certainly, puppies and kittens need to be vaccinated early. Your veterinarian can educate you on the proper course of vaccinations whether your pet is young, adult, or senior to maintain their health and wellness.
Parasite prevention is nearly as important as keeping your pet vaccinated. Dogs and cats are particularly vulnerable to various parasitic infestations. Many of these parasites can move from your pet to you, meaning that keeping your pet clean from parasites can be a part of your family’s health care.
