A lot of people are confused when it comes to pet vaccines. How could getting Fluffy sick now be good for her later? Well, it's not necessarily true that giving her a vaccine will make her ill.
In the past, when vaccines were first being investigated, patients were actually injected with a less severe version of the disease (or a closely related disease) under the notion that it was much better to get mildly sick in the present rather than suffer a more severe sickness later.
*Today's vaccines are drastically weakened, or only pieces of the virus are injected and don't actually transmit the disease. In other words, don't be nervous that your animal will become extremely ill as a result of a vaccine.
