Our Animal Hospital's Recent Thoughts on Vaccinations

There have been improvements in the type of vaccines produced, and recent studies have shown that today’s vaccines protect dogs for a longer period than previously believed. These facts, coupled with new evidence that the process of vaccinating a pet may not be as harmless as once thought, have led a growing number of veterinarians to advocate for reduced frequency in vaccinations.

Deciding Whether to Vaccinate

Vaccinating a pet against disease is a medical procedure and, like all medical procedures, carries some risk. The benefits of vaccinating must be weighed against the risks. One of the key AAHA Canine Vaccine Guidelines is that all dogs are different and therefore vaccine decisions should be made on an individual basis for each dog. Issues to consider include:
  • Age 
  • Breed 
  • Health status 
  • Environment 
  • Lifestyle 
  • Travel habits of the dog
