Why Are Vaccines Crucial for Pets?
Vaccines protect against several common diseases that can potentially endanger the life of your pet. By preventing illnesses before they disrupt your pet’s health, vaccinations promote a better quality of life.
A lot of people don’t realize that some pet illnesses may cross the barrier and infect their human families. Whether it is time for puppy & kitten vaccinations or dog & cat vaccinations, keep your whole family safe by visiting Olive Branch Pet Hospital for your pet’s vaccination needs. Think of it as an investment in the future since vaccines also save you money on the treatment of many preventable diseases.
How Do Vaccines Work?
Vaccines work by stimulating the immune system to produce antibodies against a modified or killed version of certain offending viruses. That way, if your pet is exposed to the same virus later in life, their body will know how to fight.
Core vaccines boost the overall immunity and health of your pets, while non-core vaccines are recommended on an as-needed basis. Your pet’s age, size, risk of exposure, and travel plans may play a role in their vaccination schedule.
Are There Risks Associated With Pet Vaccines?
Like most medical procedures, pet vaccinations come with a warning label. While most side effects are mild, keep in mind that your veterinarian has determined that the health benefits of vaccines far outweigh any potential risks. Ask Dr. Mark or any of the veterinary nurses if you have any concerns regarding recommended vaccinations.
