Pet vaccination

Common misconceptions: Can my pet still contract a disease even after being vaccinated?

Vaccinations are a series of shots given to your pet from a very young age extending into adulthood.

The goal of vaccinating your pet is to introduce a small amount of a virus particle into the body, causing it to develop an immune response. This response allows your pet to gain protection against a particular bacteria, virus or disease if they were ever to be exposed to it.

This provides long-lasting immunity and helps prevent your pet from becoming seriously ill. While vaccines can boost their immunity against the disease, they are not a permanent cure.

Unfortunately, even though vaccines provide immunity against particular diseases and enhance their immune systems, it’s also possible that shots sometimes can fail to provide immunity to your pet.

Vaccines can sometimes fail, especially when given to an unhealthy animal. This leaves you with a false security that your pet is protected when they are not. Moreover, unhealthy pets can get sicker when vaccinated, so it’s important to make sure that your pet is healthy and well before receiving their shots.

Vaccinated pets have a higher chance of surviving diseases and infections when compared to their unvaccinated counterparts. Hence, it’s highly recommended to get your pet vaccinated on a timely basis so that they have strong, long-lasting protection against life-threatening illnesses.
