Prevent Illness, Protect from Infectious Disease

Pet vaccines prevent your pet from falling ill. They provide immunity from various infectious diseases that can affect animals.

The necessity of vaccination against specific diseases depends on different factors including the age, medical history, lifestyle, and habits of your pet.

Keeping your pet’s vaccinations up-to-date is crucial for a healthy lifestyle and proper pet development. We recommended that you schedule at least one yearly veterinary appointment for your pet – for a general check-up and the chance to implement a vaccination program.

We also run the Versus Titer vaccination program testing to assess the level of your pet’s immunity before carrying out any vaccination.

Frequently Asked Questions

Every pet is different. The following advice is general in nature. For specific enquiries about your pet vaccinations, please contact us directly.

What happens if my pet misses a vaccine?2021-10-25T14:05:25+11:00

It depends on how old your pet was when they received their first vaccine. In order for the vaccine to be effective, maternal antibodies should not be present in the animal’s system. If your pet is over a year old, a booster may not be necessary. If your pet misses a vaccine after twelve weeks of age, two boosters are highly recommended in order for the vaccines to be effective.

Should I vaccinate my pet if it has previously had an allergic reaction to a vaccine?2021-10-25T14:06:21+11:00

In this situation, evaluate the risks with your veterinarian. It will depend on your pet and the risk level of the environment in which it is developing. You can take steps to reduce the risk of an allergic reaction, and your Vet will be best suited to advise you on how to manage disease risk if you choose to limit vaccinations.

Can I vaccinate my pet if it is pregnant or lactating?2021-10-25T14:08:48+11:00

Generally, try to avoid medicating during this period. Some vaccines cannot be given to pregnant animals, particularly ‘live’ vaccines. However there are alternatives available and your Vet can advise you on your options.

What happens if my pet’s medical history is unknown?2021-10-25T14:09:31+11:00

Vaccination is still recommended. If you have a dog, the core vaccines should be administered according to your dog’s age. If they are older than four months, two vaccines are enough. If they are younger than four months, then proper vaccination protocol should be followed (two to three vaccines, with the last vaccine given not before the sixteenth week, and a booster a year later).

What is the youngest age my pet needs to be for vaccination?2021-10-25T14:10:18+11:00

To be effective, your pet should not be younger than six weeks when they start receiving the first vaccine.
