At Darwin Vet we strongly recommend that your pet is vaccinated when young, with ongoing immunity then provided by annual booster vaccination. Your pet is at risk of infection from numerous viruses, some of which are potentially fatal. A simple vaccination program can protect them from most of these diseases. Vaccination is also the most cost-effective form of protection.
Animals are temporarily protected against many diseases by antibodies received from their mother’s milk. These maternal antibodies decline over the first couple of months of their lives, but until they drop sufficiently they can neutralise the effect of vaccines.
We can advise you on the correct vaccinations for your pet.
Immunity from vaccinations reduces over time and your beloved pet can again become more susceptible to disease. Regular health checks and booster vaccinations will provide the best protection.
