If you do not vaccinate your children, do you vaccinate your pets?

Don't pet vaccinations have "bad stuff" in them too?

  • Don't your children mean more to you than your pets? -- Just another way to look at things.

  • I only get my animals shots that are required by law, then again, my cats are indoor only and we have no other pets. But, I don't count, my kids still get all of their normal shots (minus flu).

  • My pets are my 4 legged kids, that's how I look at them.

  • This is an interesting question, and I am curious to see the answers, that being said my DD is up-to-date on her vaccinations and my dog will be once we can get an appointment (long waits at our vet).

  • Interesting question. I vaccinate both but that is good. I guess people who don't vaccinate their kids HAVE to vaccinate their animals as it's required by law. But then wouldn't you feel bad for not vaccinating your children. It's just a poke people. Better paying for a vaccination then paying for a coffin!

  • I vaccinate my daughter .I vaccinate my pets also but I am selective in what I give my animals. They also don't get vaccinated every year.

  • i don't have pets, but before i got any i would have to investigate the laws. i would not get a pet if i had to vaccinate it. there is bad stuff in them, i would not subject any pet or child to them : )
