Over the years, vaccines against dangerous diseases have saved millions of pets and virtually eliminated some fatal diseases that were once common. Unfortunately, many infectious diseases still pose a significant threat to dogs, cats and rabbits that are not vaccinated. Although vaccine programs have been highly successful and vaccines are considered routine today, we cannot afford to become complacent about keeping pets up-to-date on their vaccinations.
With new technologies at hand like antibody titre testing, our vets will discuss your pet’s lifestyle and environment before deciding on their ongoing disease prevention program. Generally speaking, kittens and puppies should have their first vaccination at 6-8 weeks old, a second at 10-12 weeks, and a third vaccination at 16 weeks.
