Pet vaccinations play a critical role in maintaining your pet's health. This preventative care method can help your pet avoid getting many dangerous diseases. Vaccines can shield your pets against illnesses and help with quick recovery. It can be overwhelming for pet owners when choosing vaccinations that are vital for their pets. At Liberty Vet Pets in Philadelphia, PA, our team of experts can help you establish the essential shots that your animal companion needs to stay healthy.
Why Vaccinate My Pet?
Vaccines contain antigens that induce immune system responses in pets and create antibodies to help them fight off any future disease-causing agents. Vaccines can suppress the severity of future diseases, and certain vaccines can prevent infections altogether. There are many other reasons why you should vaccinate your pet.
To Protect Other Animals
Many illnesses that our team vaccinates against are highly contagious among animals and are deadly to those exposed. Diseases like rabies, distemper, leptospirosis, and parvovirus can spread fast in any environment where animals congregate closely. Vaccines are especially important if your pet visits a daycare center or frequently plays with other pets.
To Protect Humans
Some diseases, like rabies and leptospirosis, can be transmitted from animals to humans, causing serious illness and even death. When you vaccinate your pets against these zoonotic diseases, you are not only protecting them, but also safeguarding your family and your surrounding community.
To Keep Your Pet Healthy
Your pet is a member of your family. It's vital to talk to our veterinarians about which vaccines your pets need and get them on a routine vaccine schedule. Vaccinating your pet boosts its overall immune system. Vaccination mitigates the chances of your pet contracting diseases, keeping them healthy.
Eliminate Future Treatments
Vaccinations can help avoid illnesses in your pet. These illnesses often require expensive and lengthy treatments for you pet. Vaccinating your pet is much safer and easier.
