Why We Vaccinate
Many pet owners and some outspoken animal scientists believe that we are over-vaccinating our pets. They also think that some shots may be doing more harm than good. One type of cancer in cats, for example, is known to be caused by vaccinations. Also, some vaccines can cause allergic reactions on rare occasions. Because reports and rumors of side effects have become widespread, pet owners increasingly are asking their vets about whether or not to vaccinate.
4 Paws 4 Rescue takes your dog or cat's health into full consideration. However, the diseases we routinely vaccinate against are highly treatable and usually highly dangerous. Knowing what you are up against will help you, and your vet make an informed decision.
