Customized Vaccination Programs…an Ounce of Prevention
Everyone has heard the great truism that “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. But what about a pound of prevention? What about the other old adage that “If a little is good, a lot is better”?
In the science of immunization against deadly diseases there continues to be much debate and controversy. Some argue for more; some argue for less. Although there is still much to be learned, one thing is clear: vaccinations need to be treated as the potent medicines they are.
Just as every pet is different, so is every pet’s need for immunization, and especially the schedule by which those immunizations are given. Most agree that a pet’s age and lifestyle affect vaccine choices, but what about other factors? A customized vaccination program takes into account details that may be surprising such as age at weaning, breed and body size, pre-existing health conditions, previous vaccination history, and nutrition.
Then, there is the complex consideration of which brand of vaccine to use. All vaccines are definitely not created equal in effectiveness, quality, and most important, safety.
Our goal is to protect your pet with the safest and lowest impact plan possible.
