August is National Immunization Awareness Month. National Immunization Awareness Month marks the time to remember how important it is to vaccinate your pets. Vaccinations increase your pet’s overall health and wellness and help them live longer and healthier lives. During National Immunization Awareness Month, take steps to educate yourself on common diseases pets can get and how to prevent them with immunizations. 

Anytime a pet comes into contact with an unvaccinated animal, wild or otherwise, they are exposed to illnesses. For this reason, pet vaccinations are a critical part of keeping your pet healthy and preventing sickness. At Regal Animal Hospital, we encourage pet owners to stay up to date with all of the immunizations for their pets. We offer a comprehensive set of vaccinations including prevention from canine influenza virus, rabies, measles, rattlesnake poison and more. 

It’s important to know that there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to pet vaccinations. How often your pet’s vaccinations need to be updated depends on different circumstances such as species, age and medical history. Some vaccines need to occur every year while others are required every three years. Take time to have a conversation with your veterinarian to come up with the best vaccination plan for your pet. 

National Immunization Awareness Month is a reminder that it’s just as important for pets to stay on top of vaccinations and immunizations as it is for humans.
