Vaccinations & Boosters Middlesbrough
As humans we would always make sure that we have had the correct vaccinations to protect ourselves from certain diseases so why should our pets be any different. Here at Jacqui Paterson’s we offer all of our Middlesbrough based patients full vaccination and booster treatments to ensure that your pets aren’t left vulnerable to disease. You can vaccinate your pet at any age meaning it’s never too late to give your pet the protection they need.
By ensuring that your pet is fully vaccinated and that all boosters are up to date, you are not only reaping the numerous benefits but also giving yourself peace of mind knowing that your pet is protected. Younger pets will initially need two sets of vaccinations a couple of weeks apart within the first few months of their lives to ensure they are protected from disease as early on in their life as possible whilst their natural immune system is still developing.
Depending on the type of pet you have will depend on the diseases that they will be protected, for example if you have a puppy the vaccinations will protect from distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus and leptospirosis, a kitten will be inoculated against feline flue, enteritis, herpes and leukaemia and a rabbit will be vaccinated against myxomatosis and viral haemorrhagic disease (VHD).
Here at Jacqui Paterson’s we are a team of animal lovers who completely understand that your pet’s health and wellbeing is extremely important which is exactly why vaccinating your pet should be your priority. As well as getting your pet vaccinated in the early stages of their life, it is also important that your pet’s immunity to disease remains high which is why annual boosters are required so that your four legged friend isn’t left vulnerable to diseases.
No matter the age of your pet, it is never too late to get them vaccinated, whether you have adopted your pet and are unsure of their previous vaccination history or are worried that it is too late to vaccinate your pet don’t worry, you can start a programme of vaccinations at any time in your pet’s life so make sure you book an appointment with us and we will carry a full assessment and administer the relevant vaccinations.
