Vaccinating your pet can go a long way in preventing the spread of diseases. According to Dr. Jordan Kobilca of the Door County Veterinary Hospital and Luxemburg Pet Clinic, Lyme disease is one concern this time of year with your dog spending more time outside. He says it is important to keep vaccination shots updated.
Dr. Jordan says it is also crucial to get your puppies and kittens vaccinated as early as eight weeks old. He says the young pets should receive booster vaccines every three to four weeks until they are four months of age and maternal antibodies they have in their systems wane. You can find a recommended vaccine schedule for your pet with the link below.
