Why Should I Vaccinate My Pet?

Scottsboro pet owners, are you asking yourself, “Why should I vaccinate my pet?”




  • Vaccinations are the key weapon against viral and bacterial infections in pets.

  • Worldwide millions of dog & cats are saved through vaccines.

  • Vaccines are safe and well-tolerated by most dogs & cats.

  • Vaccines will help your dog or cat live a longer, healthier and happier life!



Vaccinations are vital to puppies or kittens, when their young immune systems are developing and need protection to stay healthy. Keeping your pet current as they age on their annual or scheduled vaccines is vital to their health, the health of all pets and even the people in our Scottsboro community.



During your appointment, Williams Animal Clinic veterinarians will provide you with vaccine education for your dog or cat, discuss the scheduling of booster shots (if necessary for puppies & kittens) and discuss the need to return annually or on a set schedule.





Our vets will discuss your pet’s history, age, lifestyle and other factors (location, prevalence of diseases in Scottsboro, closeness to wildlife, where you go like dog parks, where you travel, etc…) and determine a proper vaccination guideline and schedule.
