Vaccination is a hot topic in the media at the moment. There’s plenty of information and scare tactics floating around on social media and so when it comes to vaccinating your pet, we want you to get the right advice.
The take home message is that 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 the reason we recommend vaccinations is because they work.
These are the top reasons vaccinations are so vital:
- They protect against deadly diseases: many dangerous diseases are completely preventable with the correct vaccinations.
- Vaccinations save money: vaccinations are substantially less expensive than the cost of treatment for the diseases they prevent.
- 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 – we can help you make an informed decision and are always happy to discuss vaccinations with you.
