Why We Recommend Cat & Dog Vaccinations in Plant City, FL
What Makes Cat & Dog Vaccines Effective?
Pet vaccines function like human vaccines. They trigger the immune system to react and defend itself by releasing antibodies to combat the intruder (the vaccine). Vaccines contain a killed or modified form of a virus, which is intended to train the immune system to resist infection. Dog and cat vaccines are quite effective at protecting pets, but they must be given at regular intervals throughout your pet’s life to keep their immunity strong.
