The vaccination of your pet
Animals are attracted towards other dogs, cats or skunks, raccoons, groundhogs, etc. They are therefore at risk and expose to various diseases.
Fortunately, there are various vaccines to prevent a large number of diseases your pet may encounter. Prevention is always the best and least expensive way against diseases. Without adequate vaccination and subsequent booster vaccination, your pet, as well as your whole family, will be exposed to many diseases that may be serious and even potentially deadly, including rabies.
It is, therefore, essential to protect your animal with adequate vaccination.
How do vaccines work?
A vaccine contains a virus or bacteria that have been modified so they can’t transmit the disease but will force your dog to fight viruses or bacteria and form antibodies. If your dog comes into contact with a disease, its antibodies will recognize it and destroy it. It is important to know that the protection provided by antibodies will diminish over time. Therefore you must follow your pet’s vaccination schedule and make sure it receives its booster vaccines as recommended by your veterinarian.
Vaccines play an important role in preventing diseases in animals. Do not hesitate to consult your veterinarian that will recommend an effective prevention programme. In addition to vaccination, deworming and nutrition are other essential preventive elements to ensure you’ll enjoy many years of happiness with your faithful four-legged friend!
