Vaccination of dogs

Programs supporting regular vaccination of dogs have contributed both to the health of dogs and to the public health. In countries where routine rabies vaccination of dogs is practiced, for example, rabies in humans is reduced to a very rare event.

Again your location also is a factor. We have someone that travels over an hour to get dentals for her dogs from us because its cheaper. Everyone should know about the vaccinations their dogs are getting that is just good common sense. I wish more people read up on what their pets needs. It is not easy to have to watch someone say goodbye to their pet for something we could have saved them from. Dont go to the vet but do get them properly vaccinated. However animals do need regualr veterinary care even if its just a check up. Again good common sense to catch something early.

As pet owners, we all want our little buddies to be protected. However, I've been reading more about what vaccines actually do, what kinds your dog(s) need, and even method of delivery (e.g. bordetella can be delivered nasally and subcutaneously (shot)). Here's a good link to get started.

I made the mistake of getting my dogs vaccinated at the vets when I first got them. The cost was 3x more than at a vaccination clinic! Currently, I use VIP Pet Care for vaccinations although your local Humane Society or SPCA will often offer low-cost vaccination clinics. This also applies to neuter/spay. My vet wanted to charge $500 for neuter my dog. I paid $99 at the Humane Society.

I have worked as a veterinary technician for that past three years and I cannot stress the importance of vaccines enough. Will it save your dog from every injury or ilness? No. However, it will portect your dog against some very common diseases that can be costly to treat. I live In Wisconsin so we put a lot of stress on the parvo vaccine, rabies, bordetella and lyme. Rabies and Lyme disease are zoonotic which means they can be transmited to humans. Lepto is also considered zoonotic. Depending on where you live empshasis on certain vaccines can be different. The majority of veterinarians out there are looking out for your dog's health. It is our job collectivley to keep them alive. To keep something alive it will cost money but we do the best we can to make it easy on your pocket book. Seriously consider vaccinations when recommended. It could save fido's life.
