The health and well being of your pet is threatened by the presence of powerful disease causing organisms (viruses and bacteria) in our environment. These organisms can make your pet very sick, and in some cases even cause their death! Fortunately, we have very effective means of protection against these diseases in the form of immunizations or vaccines (shots).
Vaccines work by exposing your pet’s immune system to a modified form of the organism which allows your pet’s body to produce protective antibodies which can neutralize the organisms when they become exposed to them. After the first immunization, the body creates temporary immunity that lasts for about 3-4 weeks. If a second exposure occurs between 2-4 weeks after the first, the body changes the type of antibodies it produces to develop longer term protection which usually lasts about one year for most vaccines. This is why most immunizations require a booster given within 2-4 weeks after the first exposure.
Annual boosters are then required to maintain immunity, but in this case only a single dose is required.
