Vaccination Programs

Vaccination programs are designed to prevent disease and prolong the lives of your companion animals. Disease prevention is always less costly than dealing with the treatment of a disease once your pet has developed it. An example would be the treatment of parvovirus. Parvovirus treatment can frequently cost 10 times more than a single parvovirus vaccination.

Vaccinating for Lyme disease is indicated if you live in a tick-infested area, if your yard is surrounded by tall grass and brush, if you will take your dog hiking or camping, or if you have previously seen a tick on your animals or on yourself.

Cat
