Every year many dogs of all ages become seriously ill or die from infectious diseases which could have been prevented through vaccination.
Vaccines are routinely used for Canine Distemper, Parvovirus, Leptospirosis, Infectious Canine Hepatitis and Kennel Cough because the micro-organisms that cause these diseases are widespread.
All Unvaccinated dogs are at risk since there is no specific treatment for viral diseases.
Vaccines stimulate the body’s defense system to produce protective antibodies and cells in the blood. These protect against specific diseases. This protection is called immunity. Unfortunately this does not last for life and booster vaccinations are required to maintain the immunity produced by the initial course of vaccinations.
