Why It’s Important to Vaccinate Your Dog or Cat
There are several key reasons to vaccinate your pet. Cat and dog vaccines protect individual pets by granting them a higher level of immunity to various illnesses. Additionally, vaccinations provide vital protection for not only your dog or cat, but you and your human family, as well. Certain diseases can be passed from pets to people, such as rabies and Lyme disease. When your pet is vaccinated, they have a higher immunity to these diseases, and this can help to prevent the spread of these same diseases to other pets and people.
Furthermore, it is much more cost effective to have your pet vaccinated and protected, rather than having them get sick and require expensive treatment to help them get well again. Vaccines can save your pet from debilitating illness and prevent exorbitant treatment costs.
