Do I really need to give all those shots to my pet?

We believe in the necessity of vaccination for dogs and cats. There are  many potentially fatal infectious diseases in dogs and cats. We do, however,  use the protocols which call for the least amount of frequency of administration of vaccines. Dr. Smith is concerned about the negative effects of these pharmaceuticals to animals especially Distemper vaccines.As part of the annual examination, we will discuss which vaccines we would recommend and how frequent to use them.  No two animals are the same and protocols will depend on health,breed and lifestyle.
