What are pet vaccinations?
Vaccines are biological agents administered to your healthy pet so that your animal has immunity against particular diseases or conditions. Vaccinations generally contain tiny doses of de-activated microorganisms that stimulate your pet’s immune system.

How do pet vaccinations work?
The pet’s body sees the vaccination as an invasive agent and the pet’s immune system fights off the agent. This creates a build-up of antibodies against the disease/condition. These remain in place ready to fight off the live form of the micro-organism in future if the pet becomes exposed to the risk.

Why are pet vaccinations so important?
Vaccinations protect against a wide range of infectious diseases, many of which can be fatal. If you do not have your pet vaccinated (or up to date with booster vaccination), you may find your pet insurance will be invalidated. As well as protecting your own pet, you are also helping protect the wider pet population from diseases spreading.
