The Top Reasons Why Vaccines Are Important for Pets

At Augusta Ranch Animal Hospital, we encourage all pet owners in Mesa to visit our veterinary team to get their pets vaccinated on time. Ideally, pets get vaccinated as puppies and kittens in addition to receiving booster shots throughout their lives. Take a look at some of the top reasons to invest in vaccines below!

Vaccines Matter

While there has been some debate in the world of social media, there is no debate on the importance of vaccines in the healthcare community. They are safe and they work. If you need more reasons why vaccines are important, take a look at our top reasons below:

  • Required By Law: Some vaccinations are required by law. Pets must be vaccinated against rabies. Some states also add additional requirements for certain shots. If you break the law and your pet is behind on his or her shots, you could be facing a fine.
  • Protects Your Pet: Vaccinations also protect the health of your pet. The point of vaccinations is to help your pet develop antibodies against dangerous diseases without fully exposing your pet to that disease.
  • Protects Your Family: If you do not get your pet vaccinated, you place the health of your family at risk. The reality is that there are diseases that can pass from pets to animals. When you give your pet his or her vaccinations, you can prevent some of these diseases from passing to you and your family from your pet.
