Vaccinate your pet, including indoor cats, to protect them from serious diseases such as rabies, heartworm and distemper. The cost for treating diseases can be more than having your pet vaccinated. Take your pet to a veterinarian regularly for vaccinations.
You must have a current rabies vaccine for your cat and/or dog over 3 months old under the Health Protection and Promotion Act.
