Vaccinations

Vaccinations do not cure disease – they helps prevent them by boosting your pet’s own immune system. A vaccine contains a virus or bacterium that has been specially altered so it doesn’t cause disease. But when your pet receives a vaccine, its immune system is stimulated to produce antibodies that will work against the virus or bacterium that causes the disease. Later if your pet is exposed to that particular disease, the antibodies quickly destroy the disease-causing agent. It’s important to understand that once your pet has been vaccinated the protection provided by the vaccine will gradually decline. Therefore, annual booster vaccinations are recommended.
