"Your Pet Is Our World!"
Puppies and Kittens are born with an immune system that is immature allowing them to be very susceptible to infection with common diseases such as parvo virus, distemper, and rabies. When they are not properly vaccinated they are at risk of infection from these life threatening diseases that are easily prevented with proper and timely vaccination.
Animals do get some antibodies and immunity against disease from their mother’s milk called maternal immunity. That immunity is short lived and limited, lasting usually only until the puppy or kitten is about 6 weeks of age. It is important that puppies and kittens start their vaccine series early to prepare their immune system to combat common and preventavle diseases they will encounter in nature. Booster vaccinations can be started at 6 weeks of age are given up to or past 16 weeks of age.
Vaccinations have become very important for dogs as they effectively prevent life threatening diseases such as parvo-virus, distemper, and rabies. Not only can regular vaccinations protect your pet’s health, they can also keep the human members of your family healthy as well — some canine illnesses can be transferred to humans.
Lucky for us, there are vaccines to help prevent many illnesses that affect cats. Vaccinating your cat has long been considered one of the easiest ways to help her live a long, healthy life. Not only are there different vaccines for different diseases, there are different types and combinations of vaccines.
