Vaccinations are an essential part of preventive care for dogs and cats. Vaccines work by stimulating the immune system to produce antibodies that can protect against specific infectious diseases.
Common vaccines for dogs include those for distemper, parvovirus, hepatitis, and rabies.
For cats, vaccines are available for diseases such as feline herpesvirus, calicivirus, and panleukopenia, as well as rabies.
The specific vaccines your pet needs will depend on their age, lifestyle, and risk of exposure. Your veterinarian can help determine which vaccines are appropriate for your pet and create a customized vaccination schedule.
