If vaccinations were being used for economic rather than health reasons, the profession would do well to condemn and remove the offenders.
Vaccination and parasite control are two of the most important factors that have contributed to improved health and longevity of companion animals.
Both vaccination and parasite control are vital components of modern wellness programs.
An erratically vaccinated population of cats and dogs is wide open to a disease epidemic.
It is vital for the sake of animal health and owner security that veterinarians maintain control over vaccination. They must do this by getting owners to see the veterinarian as teacher and prime source of healthcare instead of doctor/disease fixer.
