Again,another controversial subject.Pet Owners have been sold a bill of goods folks. Why were we told to bring our pets in for yearly vaccinations? Money.It is a business pure and simple.Think about that...do We go get Polio vaccinations every year,measels,mumps????
I want to be clear when I say I DO believe in vaccinating, I just do not believe it needs to be done every year for the life of the animal which is what every Vet clinic will say you NEED to do! Studies have shown that over vaccinating is causing many problems in our pets.
Google Vaccinosis and you'll find many interesting articles.
