Whilst your pet probably doesn’t like it much, annual booster shots are extremely important to protect your pet from life threatening viruses and ensure they have a happy and healthy life.
Safe, simple and effective, vaccination is the only form of protection against many highly contagious, often fatal diseases. Vaccines work by activating your pet’s immune system so that it produces antibodies against the virus which are then able to fight off infection. Unvaccinated pets who catch these viruses often have a substantially lower quality of life and must undergo expensive and stressful treatment, which is not always successful.
