Vaccines are especially important for our pets. Firstly, because they help safeguard your own life. In this way defenses are produced in your pets body and your pet will not be infected by any dangerous and common viral or bacterial diseases. Secondly, because it improves the quality of life of your pet. Thirdly, because it helps protect the lives of people who are in the immediate environment of the animal, as well as the rest of the people who interact with it.
Undoubtedly the postnatal period of your pet is crucial at the time of applying the vaccines, since both dogs and cats are in a very vulnerable position, which can lead to the development of diseases that would compromise their immune system. We must emphasize that during the first month and a half of their life is when the animal is more exposed, because of it losing the immunity that there mother gave with breast milk. Depending on each country, there are several protocols to follow to ensure a proper vaccination plan. In general, an outline must be followed according to the recommendation of the veterinarian.
As a veterinary clinic, at Royalvet we understand that there are two large groups of vaccines that the owner of the pet must take into account.
– Highly recommended vaccines: those that are strictly obligatory and those for which the transmission of a disease to humans is suppressed. Some examples are vaccines against Rabies, Parvovirus, Leptospirosis and Distemper in dogs. Vaccines against Herpesvirus, Calicivirus, Panleukopenia and Rabies in cats.
– Vaccines recommended when the animal is part of a group prone to a certain risk: in this case the diseases are not highly fatal for the pet.
To achieve a preventive health program for your pet, the Veterinary Clinic Royalvet guides you to plan, prepare, apply and monitor the necessary vaccines. It is important to emphasize that it is necessary to carry out an annual vaccination for the most common diseases. The veterinarian will establish the types of vaccines and the frequency of administration depending on the age, lifestyle and geographic location of the animal. A complete vaccination program results in savings for the owner of the pet because it avoids expenses in expensive treatments, while ensuring a full life for your pet.
