Pet Vaccination: Recommendations
Annual Vaccination: The Best Protection
Dogs and cats should not be vaccinated just as puppies or kittens, they need annual vaccinations reminders.
Keeping the vaccines up to date is very important as they protect them from serious diseases that they can get from traveling and having contact with not vaccinated, wild or foreign animals.
It should be remembered that an animal is not protected until 14 days after the injection and this is of vital importance, especially in the primary vaccination of puppies and kittens or adults in their first doses.
When to vaccinate your pet
In general, both cats and dogs should be vaccinated annually, but the vaccination schedule will change depending on many factors: age of the animal, type of life (indoor/outdoor) and activities that they carry out with you, animals or type of people with whom they live or are in contact with and pathologies that they may suffer. That’s why we recommend that even if you know the general vaccination schedules, reach us with any questions that may arise in this regard.
If the furry ones are going to accompany you on a trip, you need to ask us, as far in advance as possible, the steps to follow since the guideline will vary according to the country of destination.
Vaccination at home: advantages
Injecting a vaccine is something quick and simple. In good conditions, your pet will hardly notice it. The problem arises when animal associates the clinic as a place of stress. Then the administration of the vaccine becomes more complicated.
For this reason, our veterinarians are delighted to vaccinate at home since they are received like any other visit. Also, as most of the time the injection isn’t even noticed by the pet, they even remember us fondly 🙂
