Veterinarians across the world acknowledge that the increased use of pet vaccinations has saved the lives of countless animals during the last 100 years. Vaccinations have also successfully eradicated some common animal diseases entirely. It has been proposed that pets be vaccinated as it would protect them from several contagious and potentially deadly diseases. If your pet is unvaccinated, it is highly possible that they may be infected by another animal when outside. We strongly recommend vaccinating all pets to prevent the spread of infections, diseases and other illnesses.
Your Pet’s Vaccination Schedule Explained
A pet vaccination schedule comprises both “core” and “non-core” vaccines. Core vaccinations are foundational and compulsory whereas non-core vaccinations are optional and may be recommended based on your pet’s specific medical needs.
How Often Do Pets Need To Be Vaccinated
While your vaccinated pet is still young, our veterinarians suggest administering certain annual vaccinations. Pets must receive updated shots every year. Modern Vet vaccines are excellent at keeping your pets hale and hearty, but they do not last a lifetime. Regular vaccinations are required to protect your pets.
Vaccinations And Your Pet’s Lifestyle
Some of our pet patients spend most of their time indoors. Others spend their time both inside and outside the house. We usually recommend administering core vaccines to indoor pets only as they are less prone to being exposed to infections and illnesses. Pets who spend most of their time out of doors are more likely to receive non-core vaccines as they are at a higher risk of contracting diseases. Our vets are trained to plan your pet’s vaccination schedule according to your pet’s lifestyle.
