Second Chance – Mason Animal Rescue wants to remind everyone how important it is to ensure that your cats and dogs receive their vaccinations. Many people know how important it is to get a rabies vaccination. But not everyone realizes that other vaccinations, such as parvo and distemper, are just as important.
If you have never seen a young cat suffering from feline distemper it might be hard to understand. But once you see a beautiful cat go from healthy and playful to sick with high fever, matted eyes, and wheezing breath in a short period of time, you realize that vaccines are an important part of an animal’s healthcare regimen.
Vaccinations are a simple way to help protect animals from some truly terrible sicknesses. Second Chance ensures that all animals it adopts out receive vaccinations and we encourage all pet owners to vaccinate their animals as well. Your vet can provide you with information on recommended vaccinations.
This week’s pet of the week is Bailey, a playful and loving female Beagle. She is still young, around two or three years old, and has lots of energy. Bailey is friendly with people and other dogs. She would love to find her forever home.
For more information about Bailey or the other cats and dogs available for adoption through Second Chance, please visit our website at www.secondchancemason.com or check out our Facebook page.
