Don’t wait ’til it’s too late – vaccinate!
Vaccination is one of the most important tools we have available to help keep your pet healthy. Vaccinations are safe, have minimal (if any) side effects, and we recommend them because they work.
With the summer holidays fast approaching and many pets going into boarding, now is the time to make sure your furry friend is up to date with their vaccinations. If they are overdue, they may require a booster vaccination so you need to get in early to avoid any headaches when it comes to admitting them to a cattery or a kennel.
Why do we recommend vaccinating your pet?
Vaccinations protect against fatal diseases: many diseases that are potentially dangerous to pets are completely preventable with the right vaccinations.
Vaccinations protect other pets in the community: when there are a greater number of pets vaccinated, the spread of disease is greatly reduced (something known as herd immunity).
Vaccinations ensure you can board your pet: if you need to board your cat or dog, either for a family emergency or a holiday, your cat or dog must be up to date with their vaccinations.
Vaccinations protect your pet at their most vulnerable: If your pet is sick, their immune system may already be compromised and this may leave them vulnerable to disease. Vaccinations ensure that they are protected even in this state.
Vaccinations save money: the cost of vaccinations is minimal when compared to the cost of treating a preventable disease.
There are a number of diseases we can vaccinate against, but your pet’s general health, lifestyle, and location will determine the exact vaccinations necessary. We can help you make an informed decision about what is best for your pet, and we are always happy to discuss vaccinations with you.
