Puppies should start their vaccines, when possible, around 6 weeks to start taking over the maternal antibodies. They should return in intervals of 3-4 weeks until at least 16 weeks. The following are some of the most common vaccines being done. DHPP - highly contagious, systemic, viral disease … Bordetella - Infectious tracheobronchitis results from inflammation of the upper airways ... may progress to fatal bronchopneumonia in puppies or to chronic bronchitis in debilitated adult or aged dogs.

Kittens need two initial vaccinations - one at around nine weeks old, and the second one several weeks after that, usually at twelve weeks old. The main diseases that kittens are vaccinated against are: . Feline Infectious Enteritis (FIe) - Also called Panleukopenia. This is highly contagious a…nd easily picked up. This virus can survive in the environment for a long period of time and can carried on clothes, shoes and litter trays. The symptoms of this disease are kittens or cats appear to be overly tired, depression, lack of appetite, vomiting, abdominal pain and bloody diarrhoea which can cause dehydration. A kitten can quickly die from dehydration. It can damage the immune system, and kittens and cats can take many weeks to recover. . Feline Calcivirus (FCV) - A strain of the common cold. Another highly contagious virus. Symptoms include fever, conjunctivitis, nasal discharge, sneezing, and mouth ulcers. . Feline Rhinotracheitis (FVR) - Otherwise known as Cat Flu. Cat flu is incredibly common, and is fatal to kittens if not treated quickly. The symptoms of cat flu are runny eyes and nose, sneezing, high temperature, conjunctivitis, salivation, mouth ulcers, or even pneumonia. Many cats, once recovered become carriers and carry the virus all their lives. Flu can flare up in times of stress or when the cat has a compromised immune system. Other vaccinations that are recommended but not compulsory: . Feline Chlamydia. This has similar symptoms to Cat Flu. Kittens may also develop some respiratory difficulty as well as having the discharge from the eye which is associated with chlamydia. The signs of this disease start in one eye and quickly spread to the other eye. Without treatment these signs can last for months, even years. Chlamydia can also infect the genital tracts of cats. . Feline Leukaemia (FeLV) - This vaccination can have some worrying and sometimes severe side effects, but this is rare. This damages the immune system and is spread via bodily fluids, usually through via grooming, fighting or sexual activity. An infected female cat can pass the disease on to her unborn kittens in the womb or via her milk once they are born. Because FeLV suppresses the immune system, the cat is susceptible to many diseases which can be fatal as the cat is unable to them off effectively. . Some countries vaccinate against rabies, whereas other countries this particular vaccination is not needed. (MORE)

We need vaccines to protect us from infectious diseases and to trigger the immune system to respond with production of antibodies made for that specific pathogen. See the related questions for more details of how this works.
They need vaccinations because they help protect them from deseases like we have a flu vaccine, which protects us from the flu. Dogs and cats can get distemper, rabies, and parvo. These will kill your pet, so I sugest that your pets get a vaccine.
Many countries do require health checks and vaccinations in addition to a passport before you can visit or move there. Visit Bulgaria's tourism website for more information.
to prevent disease or if you have the disease it will not be so serious
It depends if the monkey was wild or in a zoo/pet setting. Usually the vaccines given are Tetanus, and Rabies post-exposure shots. If the animal was in a zoo or pet then chance it has rabies are slim to none. Personally I would forgo the rabies shots. There has never been a reported case in the us o…f a primate with Rabies. The monkey would have to exposed to rabies first just as in humans. Tetanus shots are given more so to prevent infection from dirt which may enter the bite area, not so much the actual bite. Really the most important thing when bitten by a monkey, or any animal really, is to keep the bite wound clean, and away from dirt. If the bite wound is severe doctor will prescribe an antibiotic such as Amoxicillin. If the animal was wild then the risk of carrying disease is slightly higher, but usually people are given the above shots and are fine. Its really not that serious. The only monkey which may potentially carry a virus is macaques who sometimes carry Herpes B. But it is very difficult to transmit, as the animal must be under severe stress to transmit it. Again there has never been a case in the US of macs shedding herpes B in the pet or zoo sector. Only 2 cases in research labs where animals are sometimes under severe stress. (MORE)
No. Presuming you are not going deep into Africa on the cruise, you do not need any immunizations.. As a matter of fact, I am getting ready to cruise Italy, Spain, Monte Carlo, Palmo-Mallorca, and Tunisia. No immunizations are needed for my travels.. Happy sailing! Have a fabulous adventure!

\nThere are no vaccinations required for Turkey. Like California, the climate is mild and dry and diseases common in other parts of Asia, like malaria or dengue fever, are not a threat in Turkey.
The necessary vaccinations for horses vary in different areas of the world. And even in a given area there is no one-size-fits-all vaccination program for horses because the risk of exposure to infectious agents can still be quite variable.. In the United States, the American Association of Equine …Practitioners has designated Eastern and Western Equine Encephalytis, West Nile Virus, Tetanus and Rabies as "Core" vaccinations. This means that the AAEP believes that all horses in the US should be vaccinated against these diseases yearly. There are several other vaccinations that are considered "risk based vaccinations", meaning that they should be given based upon the horse's risk of exposure. Examples of "risk-based vaccinations" are Influenza, Equine Herpes Virus 1 & 4, Strangles, Potomac Horse Fever, Botulism, etc. Risk factors can include geographic location, age and use of the horse and management of the horse.. Horse owners should contact their local veterinarian to discuss the recommended vaccinations for their area and situation (MORE)
No, gerbils only need to go to the vet when something is wrong. Signs of a gerbil being ill are listlessness, sleeping alone when in a group, ruffled fur, dull and sleepy eyes, and strained breathing. To be sure that your gerbil is healthy, check it once a week briefly: - make sure fur is smoot…h and sleek, not "puffed up" [sign of respiratory infection and other illnesses] - make sure eyes look alert and shiny, and that there is no reddish discharge [sign of allergy] - make sure their nose is clear and not "sore looking" [sign of allergy] - check that there are no bald spots, especially around neck and base of tail (disregard their scent gland, located at the belly) [sign of mites or just pure boredom] - make sure there are no lumps or swelling of the scent gland [sign of possible cancer of the scent gland] - make sure anus is clean, as gerbils are clean creatures [sign of diarrhea and other illnesses] Generally, if there is an allergy or respiratory infection, it is probably the bedding. Changing it out and replacing it with a different type may solve the issue. Make sure you are not using Cedar or Pine bedding to house your gerbils--the oils in these beddings irritate the gerbil's nose and airways, causing red mucus discharge around eyes and nose and possibly causing respiratory infections, which can lead to death. Make sure your are using recommended beddings, such as Ecobedding, unscented Carefresh, or large flake Aspen. Bold spots can be caused by mites, which would require veterinary attention, but it is most commonly the gerbil or its cagemate being bored and overgrooming. To test this, throw in a new, gerbil-safe toy, and see if the hair begins to grow back. Cancer and diarrhea are serious for gerbils, and do require medical attention. Be sure to go to a vet that works with rodents frequently, and ask questions about what they are doing to be sure they can back it up. (MORE)
You need to see a naturopath and heal your body from the ravages all your former vaccines have done to your body. Don't take my word for it, read some studies on short- and long-term vaccine effects NOT funded by the vaccine-makers.
An adult who hasn't had chickenpox should talk with his or her health care provider about getting chickenpox vaccine.
It's fine, out of all the year 8 girls that had it (the first one),only one fainted at my school.. it is only a sharp scratch and themain symptoms are just aching etc., but really, it depends on theperson.
If you mean a rabies vaccine, then, no. Rabies can only be transmitted if the animal bites, and if the bite breaks the skin. So if the cat only scratched you, then you don't need to worry. It is also very, very rare for a human to get rabies from a cat nowadays, as most people have their cats vacci…nated for it. Most rabies cases nowadays are from wild animal bites. (MORE)
They do. They need to stay on the same vaccination program as younger horses. They also need to be wormed just as often and their teeth need to be checked and 'floated' to make sure the older horse can eat without pain.
Most horses need the basic 5-way, strangles, West Nile and in some countries rabies. The UK does not need the rabies vaccine. If your horse sustains an injury a tetnus booster is a good idea. In the US horses must have a coggins before they are allowed to go across state lines. It is always a good i…dea to consult a vet and he can advise as to which vaccines are needed in your area. Added:If a horse is from the UK and is being ridden in international competitions they will be required to have a rabies. (MORE)
not required by law,unless you are in the military. Personally I would call the cdc(center diseasecontrol). I believe they are based in Atlanta Ga. See what there recomendations are. Better safe than sorry.
The risk of infection is always present when bitten by various animals. Mice no exception. Some mice carry diseases but absolutely most diseases carried by mice are not transferable to humans. Mice are actually very clean animals. They spend a lot of time taking care of them selves. Always cleanin…g and grooming themselves and each other. I would say No, but this could depend on where you live. Some places do have a population of mice that are carrier of diseases harmful to humans but the actual chance that you will get this disease by a bite is still low. Our immune-system will fight diseases promptly, although some people with low immune-system activity for various reasons might want to have the bite checked out by a doctor. If your "finger" or the area where you got the bite get inflamed and more sore, even spreading, then this is a "bad" sign and a doctor should check this out. A quick course of Antibiotics would in most cases take care of this. A vaccine is something used as a "preemptive" strike and does not always have any desired effect after you already contracted a disease. (MORE)

The vaccine is recommended every year for children older than 6 months. Kids under 9 who get a flu vaccine for the first time will receive it in two separate doses a month apart. Although children 6 months to 5 years old are still considered the group of kids who need the flu vaccine the most, updated guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) now recommend that all older kids and teens get it, too (as long as enough is available). It's especially important for high-risk kids to be vaccinated. High-risk groups include, but aren't limited to, kids with asthma, heart problems, sickle cell anemia, diabetes, and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
