Why You Should Vaccinate Your Pets

Vaccinating your pet will protect them from many common animal diseases and give them a great start in life. Puppies and kittens are especially vulnerable to disease in the first six months of their life while their immune system is still developing. It is recommended that their first vaccinations be administered when they are six to eight weeks old. This, and following a prescribed vaccination schedule will give your little fluff ball the best chance of living a long and healthy life. We understand that some pet owners have concerns about vaccination. We are always happy to answer any questions you may have and discuss your concerns. At Rosebery Vet, our priority is to provide the best healthcare possible for our furry patients and peace of mind for their families.
