Veterinary Vaccinations: Saving Lives One Pet at a Time
What are small animal vaccines?
Vaccines essentially consist of greatly weakened or killed organisms that could potentially cause disease or illness as a vibrant, lively organism. Such debilitated organisms are then administered to your pet, introducing it to the body so the immune system can build a protective guard against that particular disease. If your pet ever comes in contact with this sickness again in the future, the immune system will not only recognize it, but will also know how to attack it, suppress the symptoms, and sometimes even kill it, keeping your companion animal safe from harm.
Why should I consider vaccinating my pet?
Although some vaccines may pose risks, as with any medical treatment, the threats are minimal and the benefits greatly outweigh the tiny amount of hazard that remains. Vaccinating your pet can:
- Save your pet’s life from deadly disease and sickness
- Optimize your companion’s longevity of life and overall wellbeing by minimizing symptoms of infection
- Help prevent epidemics and the spread diseases to other animals
- Save your own life or those of your family and friends; some animal diseases can be transmitted to humans
