Vaccination is a vital tool we have available to help keep your pet healthy.
Even if your pet doesn’t have contact with other pets, he should be vaccinated. Many people aren’t aware that there are diseases that can be transmitted in water droplets through the air or in contaminated faeces.
Other reasons vaccinations are so vital
They protect against deadly diseases: many dangerous diseases are completely preventable with the correct vaccinations. Why would you put your pet at risk?
Vaccinations save money: vaccinations are substantially less expensive than the cost of treatment for the diseases they prevent. We think this is a no brainer!
You can board your pet with other animals: if you ever plan to board your dog or cat he must be up to date with his vaccinations – what would happen if you had a family emergency and boarding was the only option?
Visits to the vet hospital: if your pet has to stay in hospital he needs to be vaccinated. If your pet is sick, his immune system may be already be compromised so you want to know he is protected.
There are many diseases we are able to vaccinate against, but your pet’s health, lifestyle and where you live may affect which vaccinations are deemed necessary – as many of you will be aware, Albany regularly sees outbreaks of Canine Parvovirus and Kennel Cough, but we also know that Feline Immunodeficiency Virus as well as other cat virues are present within the cat population. We can help you make an informed decision and are always happy to discuss vaccinations with you.
