Why we brits are not immunising our pets
It seems that as a nation of pet lovers, the UK has a poor per cent of owners that actually immunise their pets. Even though you’re pet could contract Distemper, Parvovirus, Adenovirus type 2 (hepatitis), Leptospirosis, Parainfluenza, and Coronavirus Reports from Direct Line Insurance found that over 864,000 animals over the past 5 years have become ill from dieses that could have been avoided if the animal had been immunised.
Owners are urged to seek information from their local veterinarian who can advise about immunization and why it is so important. Prevention is the best way forward therefore when buying a puppy or kitten be responsible and immunise against infectious disease.
