Why Vaccinate?

Vaccinations for pets are extremely important to ensure your pet will live a fulfilling life without preventable disease or illness. New vaccinations and techniques are released every year and at Moorabbin Veterinary Hospital we pride ourselves in being up to date.

Vaccinating is using a medicine to build immunity to viral and bacterial diseases that do not respond well to treatment. Without vaccination, these diseases are more likely to occur, the outcome can be an illness that is short and devastating, or long and drawn out.

When should you vaccinate your pet?
Generally to prevent disease, your young pet will require an initial series of three vaccines followed by an annual booster to ensure ongoing protection. Older pets with a more mature immune system will require fewer boosters.

At Moorabbin Veterinary Hospital, with every vaccination a comprehensive physical examination is given. During this time, our vets will review your pet’s medical history and help you to choose the right vaccine program for your animal.
