“How do I know which vaccination is best for my pet?”
That’s easy! We will discuss with you the appropriate vaccination protocol for your pet.
Regularly vaccinating your pet is important to protect them against various potentially fatal or debilitating infectious diseases.
We will advise the type of vaccination which will be best for your pet, taking into account a discussion about the pet’s age and lifestyle – such as whether they are mainly indoors or outdoors, and any risk factors that they might be exposed to.
Our vets follow the current world guidelines on vaccine types and frequency of use to ensure your pet is best protected from disease. If your pet has any health problems of concern, or a history of autoimmune disease, we may recommend titre testing to check their level of immunity.
Similar to when us humans get our vaccinations, there is sometimes some mild pain or discomfort at the site of the vaccination injection, however pets have a lot looser skin than people, and the vaccination injections are given subcutaneously (under the skin) to pets instead of into the muscle like with us humans. Some pet vaccinations, such as for canine cough, can also be given orally or sprayed into the nose.
We will be able to explain any common things to be aware of after your pet has had their vaccination, and what to do if you have any concerns. Your pet’s health and wellbeing are of paramount importance to us.
