Some may have seen or heard the words " distemper " or " parvo ", especially over the past several weeks . Vaccinations in pets play an essential role in keeping your pets healthy and preventing the spread of disease . 5 Reasons to Vaccinate Your Pet : 1 . Vaccinations prevent many pet illnesses . 2 . Vaccinations help avoid costly treatments for diseases that can be prevented . 3 . Vaccinations prevent disease that can be passed between animals , including wildlife and also from animals to people such as rabies . 4 . Diseases prevalent in wildlife like rabies and distemper can infect unvaccinated pets . 5 . The State of Texas requires all dogs and cats be vaccinated against rabies by 4 months of age .
