Immunizing Your Four-Legged Family Members
Most vaccines typically work by tricking your pet’s body into thinking it has the virus we are treating against. This causes their immune system to build up a natural resistance to the disease, preventing the real infection from taking hold. By taking a proactive approach to preventing the spread of illness to your pet, you will greatly increase the chance that they will live a long and healthy life with your family. Additionally, certain diseases, such as rabies, can spread between animals and pets, giving an even greater reason to seek pet vaccinations.
Are Yearly Vaccines Safe?
While there has been a lot of press lately about the dangers of vaccines, the benefits of immunizing your pet still far outweigh the risks. The majority of cats and dogs will respond normally to the vaccine, with adverse reactions being extremely rare. Additionally, the vaccines we use have been thoroughly tested by multiple organizations and are safe for use in both humans and animals. This is why immunizing your pet is still one of the best ways to significantly extend their lifespan while greatly improving their quality of life.
