Vaccinating your pet

Make sure you protect your pets and keep them safe by keeping up to date with their vaccinations.


If the number of pets protected by vaccines drops our animal companions could be at risk from an outbreak of infectious diseases, some of which can be transmitted to humans.


When to get vaccine shots or jabs for your pet

When puppies, kittens and kits are born they are usually protected from infections by their mother’s milk, providing she has been regularly vaccinated. However, this protection only lasts a few weeks so they need regular vaccinations from an early age.


However, older pets need protecting too, as their immunity can decline. Speak to your vet as the regularity of your companions vaccinations can vary depending on the diseases prevalent in your area.
 

Covering the costs of vaccinating your pet

 

Many vets, including Medivet, CVS UK Ltd veterinary group practices and Companion Care/Vets4Pets offer pet care health packages to help manage the costs of regular checkups and preventative treatments.


Speak to your local vet to discuss health care schemes.
