How to Pet Vaccinations Work from North Yonge Veterinary Hospital

At the North Yonge Veterinary Hospital, we have a responsibility to make sure that the pets of the Newmarket area have access to a trained veterinarian who prioritizes preventative healthcare. One of the most important parts of preventative healthcare is the annual visit. This allows the vet to discuss important issues with the family that might prevent a dangerous problem from developing. One of the most important topics comes in the form of vaccinations for pets.

How do Vaccines Work?

When a pet comes to our office, there are a number of vaccinations that we are going to recommend. Vaccines vary slightly based on the animal and the age of the pet. Some of the most common vaccines that we administer include rabies, distemper, kennel cough, and certain types of adenovirus and hepatitis.

Vaccines work by injecting pets with proteins that have been taken from a bacterial or viral illness. These proteins alone are harmless. The idea of providing pets with these proteins is to train the immune system. The immune system is going to train by attacking these foreign proteins. Then, if the animal ever runs into these diseases for real in the future, the pet’s immune system can fight off this illness before any symptoms arise.

Vaccines are important for not only protecting the recipient but also other people or animals. Diseases can be passed between people and animals. Therefore, it is critical for everyone, including pets, to make sure that they are up to date on their vaccines. This is important for the community.
