“Why does my puppy or kitten need so many vaccinations?”

Does this sound familiar? In the exam room, veterinary team members provide a vast amount of information in a relatively short amount of time, and it’s easy for a busy, distracted, or overwhelmed client to forget all the details.

To help ensure clients comply with your vaccine recommendations, AAHA Press has released a newly updated pet health brochure: Vaccinating Your Pet. Reviewed by board-certified veterinarians and updated to reflect the 2017 AAHA Canine Vaccination Guidelines, this brochure contains tangible information in an easy, question-and-answer format that clients can refer back to anytime.

Topics include:

  • What are vaccines, and why are they necessary?
  • Which vaccines does my pet need?
  • Why does my puppy or kitten need so many vaccinations?
  • What are the possible risks?
  • Is there a test that can determine whether my pet needs to be vaccinated?
  • How often does my pet need to be vaccinated?

Vaccinating Your Pet is the latest addition to the Pet Health Brochure set, which contains 19 client brochures covering common animal health concerns, from vaccinations and lab testing to dental care and anesthesia.

Explaining the importance of high-quality care to clients can be a challenge with so much to do in the exam room. AAHA Press Pet Health Brochures are an important and affordable solution.
