Why Vaccinate Your Pets
When you meet your new pet, you know. You know that she is yours and will be a wonderful addition to your household. You know that you will love your pet, and your pet will love you. You also know that you will do whatever you need to do to protect her.
One of the first things you should do when you meet your new furry family member is to take her to the veterinarian for a checkup. This is important if your pet is a very young puppy, kitten, or exotic. It is also important if you are adopting an older pet. Younger animals are more susceptible to diseases and need to be examined. Older pets need to be evaluated so you and your vet can know more about their health and medical history.
Whether young or not-so-young, your pet needs to be vaccinated against common diseases. This is one of the most important and effective ways to protect your new pet. You can protect your pet against a wide array of diseases and illnesses by keeping up on vaccinations. Not only does this help safeguard your pet's health, it can also save you a lot of money in treatments.
Vaccinations can also protect your pet, and the human members of your family, from illnesses that can be passed from animals to humans. Diseases like rabies can be spread from wild animals to your pets, and vaccinations help keep your pets safe.
Ask your veterinarian what vaccinations you should get for your pet. Different species have different needs. Some vaccinations are required by law, and other are recommended depending on your location or other special circumstances.
You can get your new pet vaccinated to get off to a healthy start, and if you have missed a few with your older pet, you can talk with your vet about getting caught up.
