the big issue
To be, or not to be? That is the question!
Over-vaccination still remains a hot debate. The question is - should we, or should we not, be vaccinating against all major viruses every year? This has been the particular concern of dog owners and breeders for some time, but now Companion Care has the answer.
Whether we like it or not, dogs-just like humans-suffer from a range of infectious diseases has become a priority. One of the best means of prevention is by creating a natural immunity in the animal. This is usually achieved - as it is in humans - by vaccination.
Pet owners who have been unlucky enough to experience infectious disease in dogs at first hand, would be the first to say that they would rather their pet be potentially over-protected, than watch it suffer or even die an unnecessary death
Research is ongoing and times are changing, and we are pleased to say that there has been a breakthrough regarding the recommended frequency of vaccinations in some cases. One result is that, for dogs at least, they may no longer have to be vaccinated against every disease, every year. Ultimately, our vets will be able to provide owners with a flexible vaccination schedule based on separating out the core and non-core vaccines and treating every animal as an individual.
Leading the way and by careful vaccine selection, Companion Care can now offer an improved vaccination strategy for dogs which minimizes the number of annual boosters, but still maintains protection for the individual dog and the population at large.
One result is that dogs no longer have to be vaccinated against every disease every year.
The big questions are:
Is your dog safe from disease? ...... NO
Is there really a need to vaccinate annually against every infection?.... NO, with Companion Care you don’t need to!
