Dog and Cat Vaccinations
Vaccinations are an essential component of your dog or cat’s preventative veterinary care. Vaccines are the best way to keep your pets (and your human family members) healthy by preventing your cats and dogs from contracting dangerous, contagious diseases.
Vaccinations contain antigens (inactive or partial viruses). When your pet receives a vaccination, his or her immune system responds to the antigens by creating antibodies to fight the infection, without your pet experiencing all the dangerous, unpleasant side effects of the full, active virus. If your pet encounters the same disease in the future, his or her immune system will immediately recognize the virus and eliminate it.
