What would you like to do?
We need vaccines to protect us from infectious diseases and to trigger the immune system to respond with production of antibodies made for that specific pathogen. See the rela…ted questions for more details of how this works.
to prevent disease or if you have the disease it will not be so serious
Yes, you need to vaccinate dogs. It's good for them as well as you.
If you mean a rabies vaccine, then, no. Rabies can only be transmitted if the animal bites, and if the bite breaks the skin. So if the cat only scratched you, then you don't n…eed to worry. It is also very, very rare for a human to get rabies from a cat nowadays, as most people have their cats vaccinated for it. Most rabies cases nowadays are from wild animal bites.
They do. They need to stay on the same vaccination program as younger horses. They also need to be wormed just as often and their teeth need to be checked and 'floated' to mak…e sure the older horse can eat without pain.
Most horses need the basic 5-way, strangles, West Nile and in some countries rabies. The UK does not need the rabies vaccine. If your horse sustains an injury a tetnus booster… is a good idea. In the US horses must have a coggins before they are allowed to go across state lines. It is always a good idea to consult a vet and he can advise as to which vaccines are needed in your area. Added:If a horse is from the UK and is being ridden in international competitions they will be required to have a rabies.
No,you do not unless your doctor tells you to.
not required by law,unless you are in the military. Personally I would call the cdc(center diseasecontrol). I believe they are based in Atlanta Ga. See what there recomendatio…ns are. Better safe than sorry.
The risk of infection is always present when bitten by various animals. Mice no exception. Some mice carry diseases but absolutely most diseases carried by mice are not transf…erable to humans. Mice are actually very clean animals. They spend a lot of time taking care of them selves. Always cleaning and grooming themselves and each other. I would say No, but this could depend on where you live. Some places do have a population of mice that are carrier of diseases harmful to humans but the actual chance that you will get this disease by a bite is still low. Our immune-system will fight diseases promptly, although some people with low immune-system activity for various reasons might want to have the bite checked out by a doctor. If your "finger" or the area where you got the bite get inflamed and more sore, even spreading, then this is a "bad" sign and a doctor should check this out. A quick course of Antibiotics would in most cases take care of this. A vaccine is something used as a "preemptive" strike and does not always have any desired effect after you already contracted a disease.
As Hawaii is a part of the United States of America, there are no vaccination requirements in order to travel there.
The most important vaccinations that beef cattle receive are:Blackleg, Malignent edima, Black's disease, Redwater,IBR (infectious bovine rhinotracheitis), PI3 (para influenza …type 3), BVD (bovine virus diarrhea), and BRSV (bovine respiratory syncytial virus). Don't worry about the names, if you consult with your veterinarian, he will give you a vaccination that has multiple purposes (you do not have to give a separate vaccination for every disease. Hope this helps!
The CDC and WHO recommend vaccinations of Rabies, Hepatitis A,Hepatitis B, Cholera, Typhoid, and Influenza.
Being caged animals, pet rabbits do not require shots such as rabies. Vaccinations are not necessary. Always check with your vet for recommendations, however.
No- Cyprus has no diseases that have not already been eradicated in Western Europe and the USA, and the animal disease Rabies has also been eradicated there. There are a few s…pecies of snake on the island whose bite can be poisonous, the most dangerous being the Blunt-Nosed Viper, but although their venom can make you ill, it is not fatal and all hospitals and health centres on the island have ready stocks of antidote to hand.
