August is Pet Vaccination Awareness Month

What Vaccines Does Your Pet Need And When?

Both dogs and cats have set vaccination schedules recommended by veterinary professionals. You may notice that a few vaccinations, such as those for rabies and DHPP, tend to be repeated in the vaccination schedule throughout the years. This is because these diseases tend to be quite powerful and your dog can constantly be exposed to them without consistent, proper vaccination.

Pet Vaccinations:

Pet vaccinations were originally designed to protect pets from diseases that were common at the time, which included canine distemper, canine parvo, and feline panleukopenia. Since the introduction of these vaccines, the listed diseases have become extremely rare and almost non-existent in the modern age. Current vaccinations target rabies more than any other disease since this tends to be the most common affliction among pets of all types. The ultimate goal is to make rabies as obsolete.

New Pet Owners:

New pet owners may be intimidated by the prospect of regular vaccinations for their pet. But in all actuality, the process is relatively simple and easy to adapt to your pet’s regular health routine. In terms of cost, vaccinations do tend to add up and may be a slight strain for pet owners on a budget. However, this cost is minuscule compared to the price you might otherwise have to pay to treat a disease your pet contracted as a result of not getting the vaccines. Not to mention, regular vaccinations takes a lot of stress off of you in worrying about your pet’s health or taking extra precautions to prevent exposure.
