Pet Vaccinations

There are lots of nasty diseases out there that our pets can catch. Vaccinations are the best way to protect them from these.

Why should I vaccinate my pet?

There are lots of nasty diseases out there! Some of these can cause pain and distress and in some cases can even be fatal. Vaccination is the best way to protect your furry friend against specific diseases.  

What is a vaccine and how does it work?

Vaccines are one of the most common procedures we carry out at our practices.  It’s quick and simple and what’s more, at the time of vaccine your pet will receive a full health check examination by our vets.

A vaccine is usually given by an injection under the skin, although some vaccines are given as drops into the nose. It contains small controlled quantities of the virus and is designed to stimulate an immune response that will protect your pet against the disease.  If your pet then comes into contact with one of the diseases, its immune system will recognise it and already have the antibodies in place needed to fight it.

How often should I vaccinate my pet?

As a general rule we recommended your pet is vaccinated every year.  However all pets differ slightly so your vet might not always vaccinate your pet for all the diseases every year.   There are a number of things that can influence this including health status, breed, age, lifestyle, environment and travel habits.  Your vet will work with you to determine which vaccines are appropriate to keep your pet happy and healthy.
