Vaccines for Pets

Each year when we bring our pets in for their annual wellness visits they get a physical exam, possibly some bloodwork run and their all important vaccinations. But just what vaccines are really necessary? Why are some more important than others? Why do some vaccines last for only a year while others for longer? It can be a lot to absorb at one time, especially when being bombarded with all the information you typically receive while visiting the veterinarian. To help simplify the topic of your pets and their vaccines we have provided a quick refresher on what vaccines are available and why they are an integral part in keeping your pets healthy.
