Vaccinating Your Pets is the First Step to Pet Ownership.

Just like human babies have vaccination courses, pets too need a number of vaccines and booster doses to keep themselves safe and help them fight against diseases. According to statistics, a large chunk of fatalities in younger pets (2-4 years) occur due to not being vaccinated, or even missing booster doses. 

Some vaccines can be given to pets, as old as 6 weeks. It is recommended to contact us before scheduling your vaccination appointment.

How often do your pets need to get vaccinated?

You should get a puppy or kitten vaccinated the first time, when they’re around 6-8 weeks old, followed by one vaccine every three weeks until the age of four months. All vaccines given to dogs and cats need an annual booster dose. Given below are a few necessary vaccines that your dogs and cats need. However, please consult with your veterinarian for further information on the same.

Are there any side effects to vaccination?

Just like human vaccinations, animals may also react poorly to certain vaccines, if it clashes with their natural immune system. Here are a few side-effects that your pet might experience post-vaccination.

  • Mild fever
  • Feeling sluggish
  • Loss or decrease in appetite
  • Facial or paw swelling and/or hives
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhoea
  • Pain or swelling around the injection site

The majority of the reactions in animals are mostly mild and short-lived, therefore can be ignored. However, if you find your pet’s reaction turning severe which would include developing hives, vomiting, swelling or prolonged fever, you should immediately contact your veterinarian.

Deworming - Part of the vaccination package

Deworming is a preventive care conducted to keep your dogs and cats safe from intestinal worms and reduce the chances of your pet being infested with both internal and external parasites. 

Deworming (in some cases) also prevents the transmission of diseases from animals to human bodies. You can book an appointment with your veterinarian to deworm your pets. In many cases, your vets might also give you deworming medications. 

Puppies and kittens need to be dewormed more often than adult pets because their immunity is comparatively weaker and they are more exposed to contracting worms. It is recommended that they are dewormed every two weeks until they reach the age of three months. Adult cats and dogs need to be dewormed every three months.

If your pet is pregnant, you don’t have to worry, it is still safe for them to get dewormed. On the contrary, it reduces the chances of them passing on worms to newborns. Remember that vaccinations and deworming are processes that need to be continued throughout your pets' lives.

Microchipping - Part of the vaccination package

Microchipping is the process of inserting a microchip is a radio-frequency identification transponder carrying a unique identification number. When a vet clinic or shelter scans the ID, it transmits the ID number.

Through the ID, they contact the company that made the chip and get the owner’s information. Therefore, it is extremely important for you to register the microchipping, otherwise, all your efforts go in vain. With microchipping, it gives the pet owner, peace of mind, in case their pets are lost or stolen
