Pet Vaccination

Safe Pet Vaccinations

Have you brought a new member to your family?Your pet needs essential vaccines just like humans. You must get them vaccinated by vets. These vaccines may sometimes require a booster to keep them effective. To take care of the needs of your pets, we facilitate timely vaccination and re-vaccination to safeguard your pets. Help your little companions live a healthy and happy life by providing them with a dose of vaccination.

In general, Pet Vaccination Program is broken down into two categories: core vaccines and non-core vaccines. Core vaccinations are those recommended for every pet, while non core vaccines are advised based on your pet’s lifestyle.

Why do your pets need vaccination?

Vaccines help prepare your pet’s immune system to fight the invasion of disease-causing organisms. When the vaccine is introduced to your pet, the immune system is mildly stimulated. If a pet is ever exposed to the real disease, his immune system is now prepared to recognize and fight it off entirely or reduce the severity of the illness.

Rabies

Rabies is a deadly “zoonotic disease” that can infect all mammal including humans. It is transmitted by the Lyssa virus, invading the central nervous system and causing headaches, anxiety, hallucinations, excessive drooling, increased aggressiveness, fear of water, paralysis, and death in almost 100% of cases if infected!

Parvovirus

Parvovirus is a highly contagious virus that is life-threatening for your pooch, and the mortality rate can be as high as 90% if a puppy is left untreated. Affecting the intestinal tract of puppies, the virus can cause vomiting, diarrhoea, and weight loss. To avoid these severities, dog vaccinations are vital to prevent the spread of this virus and help them lead healthy lives.

Canine Distemper Virus

The virus highly impacts the respiratory, gastrointestinal tract, and nervous system of dogs, causing a mortality rate of 50% in adult dogs and 80% in puppies even with treatment. So, you should safeguard the lives of your pets with core vaccination. Our professional vets help your baby live a safe and healthy life.

Adenovirus-2

Adenovirus-2 relates to the Hepatitis virus that impacts the liver and causes inflammation. Vaccinating your furry friend at the right time with the Adenovirus-2 vaccine creates the antigens that strengthen their immune system.

Canine Parainfluenza Virus (CPV) is a virus that triggers the respiratory system of the canines. Dry cough, runny nose, sneezing, eye inflammation, and lethargy are some of the common symptoms that might show up after getting exposed to CPV.
