A regular schedule of vaccination is essential not only to keeping individual farm animals healthy, but it is also vital to maintaining the health of your entire herd. Infectious diseases can spread quickly throughout animals on a farm. Thankfully, many of the most contagious and dangerous diseases can be easily prevented with the proper vaccination of livestock animals.
At Jackpot Veterinary Center in Tucson, our livestock veterinary specialists can help you determine the appropriate course of vaccinations for your large and small ruminants to protect the health of your animals and the community, in addition to safeguarding your investment.
Why Farm Animals Should Be Vaccinated
By preventing the contraction and subsequent spread of contagious diseases throughout your livestock, vaccinations are primarily beneficial in that they mitigate a variety of risks associated with contagious diseases.
Which Vaccines Do Your Farm Animals Need?
Vaccines are split into two categories: core and non-core vaccines. Core vaccines include those, like rabies, that are either required by law or strongly recommended for all animals. Non-core vaccines are administered on a case-by-case basis, depending on the animals’ environment and exposure risk.
Our livestock veterinarians can help you determine which vaccines are most appropriate for your farm animals to establish a responsible and prudent schedule of vaccinations designed to keep all the animals and people in your care safe and healthy.
