Do I really need to have my pets vaccinated every year?
Some Veterinarians question weather our pets need vaccinations each year as shown in this article. I also hear stories from friends about their pets reactions to different vaccinations, one of them has a Sharpei that breaks out with bumps, sores on her skin, and has to have prednisone shots with every vaccination and the following month or two.
In the county I live in, animal control comes by door to door if you have not renewed your vaccinations and will issue tickets if you are not up to date. I have heard that vaccinations are not needed every year and what alternatives are out there?
