The Importance of Pet Vaccines
Pets need vaccines just as much as humans do. At All Creatures Hospital in Carmel Valley in Del Mar, CA, we cannot overstate the importance of vaccines. If pets do not receive their vaccinations, they could be vulnerable to severe illnesses.
Vaccines Prevent Disease
Animals require several vaccines that they receive from their veterinarian. Some of these vaccines are only given depending on an animal’s lifestyle, others are essential for all pets. For dogs, core vaccines protect your pets against virulent diseases such as rabies, parainfluenza, hepatitis, and distemper. Depending on your dog's lifestyle, vaccines are given to prevent diseases like canine influenza H3N2/H3N8, leptospirosis, and bordetella.
For cats, vaccinations are for rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, panleukopenia, leukemia and rabies.
The Benefits of Pet Vaccines
Vaccines save the lives of countless animals and pets every year. Our veterinarians highly recommend the use of vaccines. Vaccines are highly effective for most pets, sparing them from the agony of contracting any of these potentially fatal diseases. It is a pet owner's responsibility to have his pets vaccinated and vaccinating your pets is the number one thing you can do to ensure they life long, healthy lives.
