Vaccinate your pets!
Your pet needs vaccinations.
Did you know your cat or dog needs shots (vaccinations)
just like you do? Puppies and kittens are
especially vulnerable to diseases and need vaccinations
to protect them.
For example, the disease called
canine parvovirus (Parvo)
causes vomiting, bloody diarrhea, dehydration, and death
in dogs every year in Los Angeles County. Our county
also has many cases of
distemper (in dogs) and panleukopenia (in cats) every year. All of these
diseases can be prevented by vaccination.
One vaccination is NOT enough!
Vaccinations need to be given more than once in order to
protect your pet completely. For example, puppies
can be protected from Parvo by vaccinating them three
times between the age of 8 and 16 weeks. The Parvo
vaccine has to be given again a year later, and then is
given again every 1-3 years or as recommended by your
Vaccinations are a bargain.
Save yourself money and heartache. Vaccinations cost a
lot less than treating a sick pet. The best time to get
to know your local veterinarian is before
your pet gets sick! Getting vaccinations from your
local veterinary clinic is a great way to get to know
them. Many veterinary clinics offer lower-cost
vaccinations on certain days. Animal shelters in our
county also offer low-cost vaccination clinics for your
dog or cat. Rabies vaccinations often cost as little as
