Vaccine Myths: 1. Small pets need a smaller amount 2. There is one set of vaccines for ALL pets 3. It doesn't hurt anyone if I choose to not vaccinate my pets 4. Veterinarians over-vaccinate to support vaccine manufacturers
Small pets need a smaller amount. While this is a nice idea, there have been no studies to prove that administering a small portion of a vaccine is safe or effective.
There is one set of vaccines for ALL pets. This is partly a myth. There are several "lifestyle" vaccines that are recommended based on your pets travel and activity. Not all pets will need all available vaccines.
It doesn't hurt anyone if I choose to not vaccinate my pet. While it is easy to have this train of thought, there are legal ramifications for not vaccinating. For instance, if a dog is not vaccinated for rabies and then has a bite situation, there are quarantine laws you (the owner) will be subject to.
Veterinarians over-vaccinate to support vaccine manufacturers. As an AAHA Accredited hospital we acknowledge and abide by the AAHA Vaccination Recommendations for General Practice. Our doctors only change protocols based on scientific studies not manufacture trends or incentives.
