Vaccinations are a vital way of protecting our pets against some really dangerous diseases.  Some of these diseases are only seen quite rarely, because of the success of vaccination, but they are all still around.

By vaccinating our pets we protect them, as well as the animals they encounter.  ‘Herd immunity’ is a term bandied around a lot.  What this means is that if sufficient animals are vaccinated, diseases are not able to spread so those animals who cannot be vaccinated for any reason have a lower chance of getting the disease as well.
