Cat and Dog Vaccinations in Farmington Hills, MI
Do you ever wonder what your life would be like if you’d never been vaccinated as a child? Think of all the viruses you’ve encountered in your lifetime. Would you be as healthy as you are today? Vaccinations are essential to our health, and they’re just as essential to our pets’ health, too. At Jeffrey Animal Hospital in Farmington Hills, we recommend initiating cat and dog vaccinations between 6 and 8 weeks of age. As with human children, puppies and kittens need boosters to build up their immunity to dangerous diseases. Leaving them unvaccinated could seriously jeopardize their well-being.
