Who are vaccines for?
Vaccines are approved for use in healthy animals. Health is the level of functional and metabolic efficiency of a living being. Any use of vaccines in animals with a recent history of disease must be considered extra-label use and requires a prescription. If you animal friends have had any kind of infection or inflammation in the past 6 months, they may not be considered healthy.
Inflammation is a complex response to environmental stimulus. In order for your animals’ vaccination to be effective they must possess an intact functioning immune system. If your animals have a history of immune mediated (arthritis), metabolic (hypo or hyperthyroidism) or ongoing problems (non-healing wounds, swellings, etc.) they shouldn’t be considered healthy.
