Healthy for Life: Raising Awareness During National Pet Immunization Month

pet immunizationThe importance of pet immunization may not be something most pet owners consider, but the fact remains that immunization saves millions of lives. Infectious diseases that once plagued our animal companions are no longer as common, thanks to advances in veterinary medicine and the introduction of vaccines.

Vaccines are integral to the lifelong health of both cats and dogs. By following your veterinarian’s recommended vaccine schedule, you’re also reducing the spread of infectious diseases to others.

To observe National Pet Immunization Month, the team at Rutland wants to highlight some of the reasons vaccinations are so vital to the life of your pet companion.
