Disease prevention through vaccination is essential in helping animals live healthy lives.
The benefits of vaccines have long been understood by generations of parents who’ve protected the health of their children. Similarly, for farmers, veterinarians and pet owners, vaccines provide essential protections against illness in livestock and pets.
Vaccination offers an effective, inexpensive way to prevent a deadly disease from harming the animals in their care. These medicines are foundational to any animal health program, with the benefits extending even to public health.
When animals are protected against a zoonotic disease, it prevents transfer to people. This is especially important for a disease like rabies which still kills nearly 60,000 people every year in developing regions.
Vaccines are one of the most important tools available to care for animal health and, by extension, our own health.
