Importance of Vaccinating Your Pets

The Importance of Vaccinating Your Pet

At the North Central Animal Hospital, we know that there has been a lot of discussion in the news recently regarding vaccines. In the medical community, there is no debate surrounding vaccines: vaccines are safe and effective. Regardless of whether someone has birds, dogs, or cats, at the North Central Animal Hospital, we recommend vaccinating your pets.

Why Are Vaccines Important?

There are a number of key reasons why vaccines are so important for pets. These include:

  • Vaccines are safe. They have been clinically tested to work without provoking any serious reactions in pets.
  • Vaccines work. A host of different nasty illnesses have had their mortality rates severely reduced by the invention of vaccines. By vaccinating your pets, you're providing them with vital protection.
  • Vaccines protect others. When pets stay up to date on their vaccines, this leads to a phenomenon called herd immunity. This means that other people and pets are kept safe because there are fewer places for illness to take root.
  • Vaccines are responsible. It is the responsibility of pet owners to protect their pets and others from dangerous illnesses. One of the best ways of fulfilling this responsibility is by ensuring your pets are up to date on their vaccines.
