I never thought this anti-vaccination movement would spread to pets. Some of the diseases they are vaccinated against are life threatening, not to mention its easier and less expensive to just get your pet vaccinated than to have them treated for it later. Some diseases such as rabies its illegal not to get them vaccinated. Rabies could not only kill your pet but you.The vast majority of puppies taken to the vet in the U.S. receive a suite of shots, including a vaccine against a highly contagious viral illness known as "canine distemper," which causes potentially fatal respiratory and gastrointestinal distress in dogs. Christopher Brockett, president of the New York State Veterinary Medical Society, says he has “definitely” seen pet owners deciding to skip vaccines more frequently.

I have a feeling there are a lot of pets where I live that haven't been vaccinated even for rabies.
I always had my pets vaccinated. Didn't want them to die over something that could be prevented.
Do you have your pets vaccinated? Thoughts?
