Lyme Disease Vaccine


Vaccines are an injection or nasal spray given to puppies and dogs to prevent serious diseases. Vaccines can be given for a single disease, or a vaccine may contain protection for a number of diseases in a single dose (combination vaccine). Vaccines work by stimulating the dog’s immune system to develop a protective response to the disease. This means if your dog came in contact with the disease, their body would already know how to fight it off, preventing the dog from getting sick.

Your dog needs to be vaccinated against serious diseases they are at risk of being exposed to. In the following articles, we will discuss common vaccination, the diseases they protect against, and how to decide if your dog needs that vaccine.

Vaccines can be essential to ensure our dogs remain healthy from preventable deadly diseases. However, it is important to remember that not all dogs need all vaccinations. Not all dogs need to be vaccinated as frequently as others. Discuss your dog’s risk level with your veterinarian before making any decisions. Be aware of your local laws regarding rabies to help make the decision of if and how often to vaccinate your dog for rabies. Also consider contacting the Centers for Disease Control and your local health department to evaluate local risks for certain diseases like Leptospirosis and rabies.

As discussed under the section about rabies vaccines, vaccine titers can be a valuable tool to assess your dog’s immunity to a disease they have been vaccinated for in the past. While a strong titer indicates good immunity, keep in mind that there is no guarantee of how long that immunity lasts. Discuss the risks and benefits of using titer testing with your veterinarian. Vaccine titers are generally a good choice for dogs with low exposure risk.
