Vaccination

Vaccination is probably the most important breakthrough in preventative medicine. Serious and fatal diseases such as Parvovirus and Distemper that were such a problem in the past are so well controlled that it is easy to forget what a good job our vaccines are doing. Indeed, many of the old age diseases, such as cancer and kidney disease, are seen increasingly because our patients are kept free of diseases and so are living longer. In a population where many animals are vaccinated it can be difficult to see how much the vaccines are helping, but it is a sad truth some unvaccinated animals do still come into contact with these infections and die as a consequence.

We offer vaccination against a wide range of infectious diseases and our staff will be pleased to provide you with more information on this subject.
