August is National Immunization Awareness Month! Vaccines are vital for preventing outbreaks in our community and keeping everyone safe and healthy! Your pets’ shots are just as important. Remember to vaccinate your pets every year and consult with your veterinarian for the most appropriate shots for your pet’s lifestyle. 

The core vaccines for your dog include: 
DHPP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus, & Parainfluenza), Bordatella, & Rabies 

Your cat also needs regular shots! 
The core vaccines recommended for cats include:
Feline Distemper, Rhinotracheitis, Calcivirus, Feline Leukemia, & Rabies

Many vaccines are needed every year, but in some cases they may be needed every two to three years. Check with your veterinarian and maintain your pet’s records so you can keep them safe!
