It is essential that all pets are adequately vaccinated to help protect the pet population as a whole. Responsible pet care requires puppies and kittens to be given their initial course of vaccinations, but this cannot protect them for the rest of their lives.

Adult dogs and cats require regular vaccinations to maintain immunity against disease. Some infectious diseases such as canine cough, canine parvovirus and cat flu are common, and are especially prevalent in the Ipswich area. These diseases can be contracted by interactions with other animals, such as boarding kennels, dog parks, wild animals or even just the neighbourhood cat in your backyard! Owners can also carry the virus with them on their shoes and clothing bringing the diseases into your pets environment.

If your pet doesn’t leave the house its just as important to vaccinate as your pet will have a lower immunity to the diseases and therefore be at even more risk! When staying in boarding facilities, dogs and cats are at higher risk of infectious diseases, so vaccinations are especially important. Most boarding facilities require dogs to be fully vaccinated with a C5 vaccine, and cats with an F5 vaccine, and usually need to be vaccinated at least 2 weeks prior to their boarding date. So if you are planning on boarding your pet over these upcoming holidays, don’t leave your pets vaccination till last minute!

Immunity following vaccination may reduce over time so boosters are required as well as annual health checks to provide the best protection for the life of your pet.
