Keep Your Pets Healthy, Vaccinate to Prevent Illness
It’s important to vaccinate your pets to reduce their risk of contracting certain sicknesses, diseases and viruses. Vaccines are made up of antigens. These antigens are made to help the body set up an immune response to such diseases. Vaccines don’t cause the disease; they help the body from contracting.
Certain vaccinations are given to all dogs, such as the Distemper/Parvo and Rabies. Other vaccines, such as Parainfluenza, Borrelia Burgdorferi and Leptospirosis are given depending on your dog’s potential risk or exposure to these bacteria.
Just like dogs, all cats should be vaccinated against certain viruses as well. Feline distemper and rabies are some of the core vaccines you should have administered to your cat. There are other vaccinations that we may recommend for your cat depending on his/her lifestyle and risk of exposure. Some of these vaccines may include, Leukemia.
