A vaccine is a substance containing a small amount of killed or altered virus or bacteria that is injected under the skin. The vaccine stimulates an immune response but does not cause any disease. The immune system then produces antibodies to this harmless impostor. When your pet encounters the “real” virus or bacteria in the future, the body responds very quickly to attack and kill it. Thanks to vaccines infectious diseases are much less common these days.

Routine vaccination is one of the most effective ways of protecting your pet’s health against many common and deadly diseases. Routine vaccinations are necessary to maintain immunity and protect your pet.
