As they say “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” and that is never more true than when it comes to the health of your animals. Vaccinating your pets can truly be life-saving, especially when it comes to puppies and kittens. Providing your animal with simple vaccinations will be far less expensive and stressful than dealing with an often devastating disease or illness.

Both puppies and kittens need a series of vaccinations in order for them to be considered safe to go out into the world. It’s important to do your research or talk to your veterinarian when determining what your individual pet may need.
