Vaccination Information

VACCINATIONS

Vaccination is an important part of preventative health care for your pet. Some diseases that we vaccinate against are potentially life threatening, so all of us at Kernow Vets recommend that you routinely vaccinate your cats, dogs and rabbits.

Cats and dogs have a primary vaccination course then followed up by annual boosters to maintain immunity. Although the primary course is usually carried out when your pet is a kitten or puppy, this can be started at any age.
