Even if your pet stays mostly indoors, many contagious diseases are airborne and could even travel through an open window, says the American Humane Association—so regular vaccinations are crucial regardless of whether your pet goes outside.
If your dog goes to the park, beach, day care, or public area to socialize with other pets there is a higher risk of getting kennel cough.
Kittens and puppy immunity inherited by the mom and is worn off after the 8th week. They need vaccinations to stay healthy. The American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) recommends vaccinating against feline panleukopenia (distemper), feline viral rhinotracheitis, and feline calicivirus every three years.
If your pet is bitten by a wild animal and isn’t current with a rabies vaccine, it may need to be euthanized
Keeping pets safe with proper veterinary care, wellness appointments and vaccinations current not only protects the pet but protects others pets, children, and the community. For more information http://www.americanhumane.org/animals/adoption-pet-care/caring-for-your-pet/vaccinating-your-pet.html
