dog vaccinations Davie As one of the more important aspects of pet health care and preventative veterinary medicine, cat and dog vaccinations help to keep your beloved pet healthy for the long-term; protecting them against communicable diseases and illnesses that can prove to be fatal. Dog vaccines and “puppy shots” help to protect against such health risks as rabies, parvo and distemper. Cat vaccines help feline friends experience protection against illnesses such as rabies, feline panleukopenia and feline caliciviral disease among others.

Though the rabies vaccine is the only one actually required by law for all pet owners, most veterinarians would recommend that all pet vaccines are administered on schedule, starting in early life, for the best protection against animal-bred illnesses. Titer tests, instead of vaccinations, are available for certain animals who meet very specific testing requirements. With the exception of the rabies vaccine, there are many options available to pet owners when it comes to vaccinating their pets.
