Vaccines are the cornerstone to disease control. Every year animals become sick with transmittable diseases which can cause severe diarrhea, dehydration, aggression, vomiting, coughing and even death. Some of these diseases are zoonotic (meaning they can be transmitted to you). By vaccinating your dog or cat appropriately you can help them stay healthy and protect yourself.
What is a vaccine?
A preparation of weakened microorganisms given to create resistance to a disease.
How is it given?
It is administered by injection through a needle or by aerosol.
Why are vaccines necessary?
Vaccines activate cells in your body to fight the virus. When it has been defeated, the cells retain a memory of the virus so next time they will know how to fight off infection.

Dear Dr. Cade and Staff, Your service and dedication to Chewy was outstanding! I would (and have) highly recommended your service to others. The kindness, compassion and actual concern for our furry family members is always genuine. Your compassion helped me endure the challenge or raising an epileptic dog and when the time came to end his suffering, you were right there to support Charles and I.
