Vaccinate Your Pet

Vaccination prevents many pet illnesses, and can help avoid costly treatments for preventable diseases. Vaccination prevents diseases that can be passed between animals and from animals to people. Unvaccinated pets are at risk from life-threatening diseases found in wildlife, such as rabies and distemper.

Most pet boarding, daycare, and training services require vaccination against certain diseases to protect all participating animals. Many local and state laws require that household pets—including indoor-only pets—be vaccinated against certain diseases.
