Keep in mind that unvaccinated animals are unprotected against rabies and could be in danger of exposing humans to the disease. If dogs aren’t vaccinated at a young age, they will be vulnerable to diseases such as rabies, canine distemper, hepatitis, canine parvovirus, Lyme disease, canine influenza, leptospirosis, and kennel cough. The same is true for cats. Vaccinating your pet will protect you both.
