Pet Vaccination

Vaccinations for Your Pet

Your pet needs essential vaccines just like we humans. These vaccines may sometimes require a booster to keep them effective.

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

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.

Some Of The Common Questions

What should I do when I miss a booster?

It is always recommended not to miss any booster or vaccine. However, sometimes you get busy and forget. In that case, you should restart their vaccine course again to make sure they are protected fully.

Why do pets have same vaccine regardless of the size?

The vaccination dose is not dependent on the size of your pet and the quantity of vaccine in the vaccination bottle, is the right amount to start their immunity development.

Can my pet fall ill due to the vaccination?

The vaccines are produced strictly following all the safety protocol. They are only sold after passing the safety test and receiving the license to sell it. The benefits are way more that side effects which are rare to find.

Can my pet catch any illness even after vaccination?

Vaccination for your pets only happens for diseases that are most common and spread rapidly. If they come in contact with a rarer strain, they will catch the disease but will mild symptoms. This will help them recover quickly and give them a fair chance of survival.

How often should I take my pet for vaccination?

Pets should be vaccinated at a very young age to protect them from various diseases. Vaccination programs for kittens and puppies start when they are around eight weeks old. Some adult pets may need to restart their primary vaccination course. This is usually the case when they’ve never been vaccinated. Talk to your vet for advice on your pet’s needs.

When will my pet need a booster?

After first course of vaccine, your pet will need boosters to keep them safe. Some boosters are given once a year and some are not given this frequently. Your pet's veterinarian will be able to give you a complete vaccination program depending on his breed and lifestyle.

When can I take my pet outside to play with other pets?

Your pet is always safe to mix with other healthy and fully vaccinated pets in your home. However, there is a small risk involved as they might come in contact with germs from outside or people they meet.

Do I need to vaccinate my older pet?

Your older pet can also be at high risk of catching a disease. Older pets are not quite strong in fighting with the diseases. They are not as resistant as your younger one so you should get them vaccinated as well.
