|The Importance of Pet
were a child you had to have vaccinations at certain points in your life such
as measles, tetanus, and other shots. This is important for your pets as well.
We will specifically look at dog vaccinations, as they are a very common for
pets to have. Keep in mind shots are required for cats as well.
need to have vaccinations to guard against disease. When your dog is a puppy
they will need a distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvovirus,
parainfluenza, and corona combination between six to eight, nine to eleven,
twelve to fourteen, and sixteen to seventeen weeks. They will also need these
shots again every twelve months. The next vaccination is a bordetella
administered at fourteen weeks and every six months. Rabies must be given at
sixteen weeks and again every twelve to thirty- six months.
Vaccinations protect your dog and other pets from human diseases as well as
other problems that could arise. Make sure your pet visits the vet on a yearly
basis. A few more vaccinations are the giardia at fourteen and seventeen weeks,
with a yearly dose. Lyme is another type administered at fourteen and seventeen
weeks as well as yearly.
Occasionally state regulations will require a
different administering chart. It is best to speak with your vet to gain the
proper knowledge for your breed of dog as well as the correct vaccinations.
Dogs are "man's best friend" and thus it is important to give proper care that
Other care besides vaccinations can be proper
baths, toenail clipping, and feeding your dog properly. Most health problems
arise in a dog that is either genetically susceptible or environmentally
exposed to human food. Human food because of its greasy qualities can block a
dog's artery. So proper nutrition is often found in dog food or cooking meals
for your pet per vet guidelines if your dog has health issues.
also require a lot of attention and exercise. Breeds such as the Huskies or
golden retrievers require special care. Huskies are bread as working dogs. They
need to have a lot of exercise as well as play time with their owners. Golden
retrievers are social animals, will feel lonely and rejected if left alone for
too long. Other breeds though social may not react in the same manners of the
latter two. Other breeds can be content with a large yard and runner as long as
they can play and eat.
Part of owning a pet, especially a dog is to
provide it with love and attention just like you need. Proper care is very
important on a day-to-day basis like having a routine feeding time or visiting
the vet for the proper vaccinations. Vaccinations can determine the longevity
of your dog just like a proper diet and exercise. While your vet has spent a
lot of time going to school for the proper care of animals it is always a great
idea to be knowledgeable about your pets care. Vaccinations when not
administered properly can harm the animal. I would stay away from ordering
medications and vaccinations online if you are not familiar with the products
and how to give them to your dog, this may cause some medical problems. Any pet
deserves the care we would give ourselves!
