With our four legged besties having an increasingly demanding social life and becoming travel companions on our adventures, factors such as contact with other animals, new environments, indoor versus outdoor living and boarding can increase your pets risk of coming in contact with disease. As owners the love we share for our pets is endless, so naturally we want nothing more than to help keep them heathy and happy.
The importance of vaccinating our four legged friends is essential!
In modern veterinary medicine, prevention is always better than cure. Vaccinating your pet stimulates the immune system to produce antibodies against the virus, in preventing it from causing disease.
This month at Kedron Veterinary Clinic it is vaccination awareness month. For the month of February we are placing a focus on the importance of preventive health care. Vaccinations are the single most important thing you can do for your pet to ensure their ultimate health. Sadly due to the large number of unvaccinated stray and wandering dogs and cats, if your pet is unvaccinated or under-vaccinated, they are at risk of contracting some very contagious diseases. Diseases such as hepatitis, parvovirus, feline leukaemia and FIV can be very serious and even fatal, especially in puppies and kittens. Help keep your pet safe, prevention is better than cure!
If you have any questions regarding your pets vaccination schedule, call our friendly staff at Kedron Veterinary Clinic for a chat today.
