Puppy Vaccinations Save Lives Every Day!!

Vaccinating your puppy/dog is the best way to protect him/her from a whole host of canine diseases, some of them potentially fatal.

Today I received an email from a heartbroken dog owner who had lost a whole litter of puppies and their mom to Parvo. She wanted to make sure other owners don't suffer the same heartbreak and had this message to share...

'My son has just lost his dog, and her seven, seven-week-old puppies to Parvo. They were taken to the vet as soon as symptoms were recognized but it was too late... and that was within a 24 hour timeframe. One minute they were all fine, the next.... it's a very sad day here.I urge everybody - PLEASE vaccinate your furbabies, it will reduce the risk of suffering the heartbreak we are going through now.'
