Preventative Vaccinations

Vaccinating your pet is a great way to protect them from infectious diseases that can affect the quality of their lives
and in some cases shorten it.


Vaccines help your pet’s immune system prepare to fight the potential invasion of diseases. Vaccines have antigens that resemble the viruses, bacteria that cause the illness, but these antigens don’t produce the disease. When an animal receives a vaccine, their immune system is mildly stimulated, and it moves into action to fight the foreign organisms. This way, if your pet is ever exposed to the real disease, the body will be able to recognize it and fight it off, or at the very least reduce the severity of the illness improving their chances of survival.


There are innumerable benefits to vaccinating your family pets, here are just a few reasons why you should bring your pet to get vaccinated:

  • Vaccines help pets live longer and healthier lives.
  • Vaccines are an effective, convenient way to protect animals from infectious diseases.
  • Vaccinating your pets will help protect your family against potential contagious diseases like rabies and leptospirosis which can be transmitted from animals to humans.
  • Vaccines stimulate and strengthen the animal’s immune system and prepare it to fight any future threats.
