Vaccinations

Our pets are an important part of our family and pet vaccination forms an essential aspect of responsible pet ownership.

Unvaccinated pets are at a high risk of contracting serious or even fatal diseases. By maintaining a good vaccination routine, you can protect your pets from these diseases and allow them to interact with other pets without worry.

Here are some reasons why pet vaccination is so important:

  1. Disease prevention: Vaccines can prevent a range of infectious diseases that can be fatal or cause serious illness in pets. Some of these diseases can also be transmitted to humans, so vaccinating pets can help protect you and your family as well.

  2. Cost-effective: Vaccinations are relatively inexpensive compared to the cost of treating a pet for a serious illness. Preventing illness through vaccination can save you a significant amount of money in the long run.

  3. Travel requirements: If you plan to travel with your pet or put them in a boarding facility when you go away, vaccinations may be required to enter certain countries or facilities. Having your pet properly vaccinated can help prevent travel-related health problems and ensure a smooth trip for you and your pet.

  4. Protecting the wider community: Vaccinating pets not only protects the individual animal but also helps protect the community as a whole. Vaccinated pets are less likely to spread diseases to other animals, which can help prevent outbreaks and protect public health.

Our team understands that vaccine requirements can be confusing and are here to help. Speak to one of our friendly vets today for help with getting your pets up-to-date with their vaccines!
