The importance of pet vaccinations for Irvine area dogs and cats
Dr. Rand Spongberg and the team of All Creatures Care Cottage in the Irvine area are dedicated to helping pet parents extend the lives of their furry family members. Dogs and cats can face a number of health issues throughout their lives, though preventative care with pet vaccinations can protect them from many diseases and conditions.
What are vaccinations?
Vaccinations are injectable medications that are administered by a veterinarian to ensure protection against certain medical conditions. They greatly lessen a pet’s chance of contracting health issues such as rabies, Lyme disease, distemper, and kennel cough. Just like children are vaccinated against hepatitis and the flu, pets are vaccinated to keep them healthy throughout their lives. Many conditions can be prevented with regular vaccinations.
Why are vaccinations important?
Vaccinations are important because they boost your pet’s immune system and protect them from a variety of conditions that may otherwise cause them harm. This includes a number of diseases such as:
- Kennel cough
- Feline leukemia
- Lyme disease
When vaccinations are administered regularly, pets are at a lower risk of contracting these issues. This protects their health and wellness for many years!
