Vaccinatable Diseases

A vaccinable disease is a condition that can be prevented by a vaccine. Some common vaccinable diseases in dogs can include canine influenza, kennel cough, giardia and parvovirus

How Does This Affect You?

The reasons vaccines were created for these conditions is because they are highly contagious, and can cause severe issues that are life-threatening. These illnesses can also have a long incubation time, which means your pet already has the condition for a couple days before they show any signs or symptoms.
Again, the veterinary care to treat these issues can be fairly expensive and intensive – some requiring overnight observation and hospitalization of the pet.
