A healthy immune system is the best protection your animal has against disease.
Vaccination is a way of promoting your animal’s immunity against certain diseases. Not every disease that your animal may contract has a vaccination, however many of the more serious diseases have a vaccination that has been developed to help promote immunity.
Vaccinations are best given in accordance with the knowledge we have about your animal’s health (from physical examination and/or tests) and lifestyle (from our discussions with you). In general, vaccinations are considered appropriate for the following diseases:
Calicivirus (cat flu)
Herpesvirus (cat flu)
Chlamydia (cat flu)
Feline Enteritis Virus
Feline Leukaemia Virus
AIDS virus (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus)
For those of you lucky enough to have a Rabbit, Ferret or Kangaroo in your life, there are also vaccinations available, and these may be appropriate for your animal’s situation as well.
