FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
Topic: Pet Vaccines
Q: What about pet vaccines?
A: NVIC focuses on vaccines intended for use in humans, but is researching and developing information on pet vaccines. NVIC has been contacted by veterinarians who have stated that the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) is recommending that veterinarians give fewer vaccines less often than in the past because of the potential for causing immune related diseases in animals. The AVMA is also recommending that veterinarians treat animals individually.
For additional information on pets and vaccines, we recommend Dr. Karen Becker as a resource.
