AUGUST:  NATIONAL IMMUNIZATION AWARENESS MONT

Not only is immunization important to humans, but our animal family members too.  Immunization can help animals get defense against many different diseases like the parvo virus, distemper, lyme disease, bronchitis, feline leukemia and aids, and more. Proper and up to date vaccines can mean life or death.  Starting vaccines early in your pet's life can help so much to living a healthy and happy life.  As puppies and kittens grow, their antibodies that come from their mothers' milk start to decrease at 6-8 weeks. This is around the time we start to give vaccines. Then we give boosters to help build up those antibodies they will be loosing from their mother's milk each month for at least 5 months.  After getting boosters, you want get them updated each year to help protect them. Some vaccines depending on the kind and the vet can last up to a year to three years. For example, for the rabies vaccine we usually give the first one that lasts a year. Then, the next one would last 3 years. Always talk to your vet first about their vaccine schedule and which vaccines are better for animals. Remember they are family members too and need to be protected just like we do. Keep them safe and protected so they can live longer and happier lives.

AUGUST 15TH:  NATIONAL CHECK THE CHIP DAY

Are your animals microchipped?  Get your animal baby microchipped on National Chip Day! This can help you and your animal stay safe and get back to you when they get out. Let's face it, your animal is going to get away from you at least once in their life. Make sure they are microchipped so when others find them they can go to a shelter or vet's office to check the chip and get back to you safely.
