Routine vaccinations are one of the best ways to protect the health of your pet. In order to make fact-based decisions on how to vaccinate your pets, the doctors at Best Friends spend much of their time reading veterinary journals and attending continuing education conferences.
Vaccination is a topic of controversy between veterinarians world wide. There are no universally-agreed upon protocols and much of what is available on the Internet is, unfortunately, not backed by scientific evidence. We base our decisions on which diseases to vaccinate against and how often to vaccinate based on several factors. Most importantly we choose to use products that have been challenge-tested and have actual evidence-based studies of their efficacy.
Of course, no vaccine is 100% effective, but we choose the ones that we feel offer the best protection from the most commonly seen diseases. The veterinarian will evaluate your pet for the necessary vaccinations.
