Although many food animal producers administer their own vaccines and protocols can vary widely, depending on the location, herd, and the owner’s goals, it is still helpful to have a general understanding of what vaccines are recommended for each species.
Vaccine reactions are a common concern in small animal medicine. Fortunately, true vaccine reactions are uncommon. Client concerns about vaccine reactions, however, are a very common issue!
Having a thorough understanding of vaccine reactions is important, so that you can address client concerns and handle these reactions quickly when they occur.
In a perfect world, every client would have the financial resources to provide all of the care that their pets need. Unfortunately, we don’t live or practice in a perfect world! Every client experiences periods of financial stress. Sometimes, it seems like all of our clients are under financial strain at once.
