The Importance of Vaccinating Your Pets

Vaccinating your pet is one of the best ways to protect his health. Pet vaccines stimulate your pet’s immune system to fight against life threatening diseases like rabies, distemper, hepatitis, and other high risk diseases. Pet owners in Toledo and surrounding communities can have their pet vaccinated by our veterinary team at Trilby Animal Hospital. Here’s why vaccinations are so important for your feline or canine companion.

Protects Your Pet’s Health

Vaccines can protect your pet’s health from babyhood all the way through his senior years. Vaccines will boost your pet’s immunity against diseases that threaten his health and life. Baby and senior pets are more vulnerable to infections and diseases, making vaccinations that much more important for protecting their health.

Vaccines reduce the risk of your pet suffering the painful symptoms of an infectious disease. It can also save you a substantial amount of money in treatments if your pet becomes sick. Vaccinations are much more cost effective than treating your pet after he’s contracted a serious disease. Through vaccinations, you have a chance to give your pet a longer, healthier life. Our veterinary team can personalize a vaccination schedule conducive to your pet’s healthcare needs.

Protects the Health of Other Pets

Many pet diseases are highly contagious. Vaccinations reduce the risk of your pet infecting other animals he comes in contact with, in the event he comes down with a disease. If your pet gets in a fight with another animal, he could easily spread a life threatening disease.

Protects You and Your Family

Many pet diseases, like rabies, can be spread to people as well. This puts you and your family at risk should your pet come down with a contagious disease. Vaccinating your pet will protect you and your family against the threat of infectious diseases so you can enjoy your pet to the full.
