My kids are fully vaccinated but my cat is not. He had all his vaccinations as a kitten but none since, he never goes to boarding kennels and has been well so far so I feel fine with it (he is 11)

We always take the dogs out for walks, dog park or on holidays with us.
I feel it's safer to have them up to date then risk a huge vet bill for something preventable. My cats are both completely indoors but with the dogs going away and they sometimes go to a lovely lady when we go away so it's safer.
I'd never neglect to immunise my son and my pets are family so I feel safer doing it. Once a year doesn't bother me and our vet is great.
Is there really no one on here who vaxs their pets but not kids? I'm really wanting to know why they decide this.

After missing a round of vaccinations one of my dogs got parvo, $2,000 later she is fine but I now vaccinate my dogs to schedule and my kids to schedule.

Vaccinate children fully and cats are done for the first 2 years as mentioned by a PP, but then once every 3 years as they are 100% indoor cats and our vet doesnt believe yearly is necessary. Our puppy is fully vaccinated and will continue to do so yearly for now as we take him walking daily, out to dog parks and to the beach etc often.
I've had a puppy with kennel cough before and it was awful for the poor thing. Our puppy didn't leave our house until 14 days after he was fully vaccinated.

Thanks! Interesting response from that poster. I can't see how people can justify vaccinating pets but not their children.

My kids arent vaxed and my cats/dog are.
Mostly because the vet just gave them the shots while at the vet. Or they were given them before we had them.
we dont make appointments just to get the animals vaccinated. I wouldnt make an appointment just to get my animals vaccinated. The every year thing is very over the top IMO
