With the rise in health problems in pets, vaccinations are more necessary than ever. Now is the time to schedule your pet vaccination and annual checkup at Normandale Veterinary Hospital. We offer up-to-date immunizations and preventative treatments that are necessary for your pet. Since each pet is different, we specialize in preventative medicine for your cat or dog.
No, your pet doesn’t need every vaccination that is available. But…
Yes, your pet still needs vaccinations. Here’s why:
You, with your veterinarians recommendations, are responsible for your pet’s health and safety. Vaccinations are essential for ensuring that your pet is protected from diseases and other health issues that arise. Therefore, to abandon vaccinations is putting your dog or cat at risk. Schedule a checkup with one of our doctors to find out about vaccine updates and which vaccines your pet needs.
Remember: Your Pets Are Domesticated Animals
Many pet owners assume that because their dogs or cats are animals that they are readily immune to the outside world. This would likely be the case if these animals were actually living in the outside world. But they are not. They are domesticated animals that spend most of their time indoors. Hence, their immune systems are not equipped to deal with health issues that can arise from going outside.
We recommend that you bring your dog or cat into our general care hospital at least once a year. An annual checkup will determine if your pet has any health issues. Vaccines will build up your dog or cat’s immunity and protect them from diseases and other harmful health conditions.
