Vaccine and Annual Check
Why should I vaccinate my pet?
Vaccines are essential in preventing life-threatening diseases. They work by exposing the immune system of your pet to a “deactivated” infectious agent. This helps the body build a defence against that specific infectious agent, meaning that the vaccine will protect your pet from developing the disease.
Vaccines are relatively pain-free but can cause adverse reactions; however, these are rare and, most of the time, mild.
DHPPi: a combination vaccine that protects against Distemper, Parvovirus, Parainfluenza and Infectious Hepatitis.
Leptospirosis: protects against a dangerous bacterial infection.
FVRCP: a combination vaccine that protects against Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, and Panleukopenia.
Feline Leukemia Virus: an incurable virus transmitted through cat bites during fights. It’s recommended for kittens even if they will not be going outdoors. For older, indoor-only cats, boosters are not required.
When should I vaccinate my cat or dog?
Our vets will recommend the exact schedule for your pet, and we’ll send you reminders one month before your pet is due for a vaccine booster. Here’s an example schedule.
