A. There are many different types of dangerous diseases that your pet can pick up if they are not up to date with their vaccinations, potentially putting their life at risk. Vaccines create antibodies, which assist the body in fighting against the dieases vaccinated against. However these antibodies disappear over time, and quicker in a dog, cat or rabbit than occurs in humans. As a result, they need to be “topped up” from time to time, hence the annual booster programme. By keeping up to date with their boosters, you can be assured that they will be protected. Preventative health care can be budgeted for and we will notify you to let you know when your pet is due. Also, if you are planning to put your pet into kennels/cattery at any time, they will not be accepted unless all of their vaccinations are up to date. We can also give rabies vaccinations and arrange a pet passport should you wish to take your animal abroad.
