My Pet Is Being Vaccinated - How Can I Make It as Safe As Possible?

When a vaccine is given to a pet there is always a risk of unwanted side-effects.

And in sensitive dogs and cats, these can be serious or life-threatening.

For more on this subject, see this blog.


The following steps can help to ensure that this procedure is as safe as it can be for your dog or cat:

  1. If the vaccination is for Distemper, Infectious Canine Hepatitis and Parvovirus, have a Vaccicheck test done first. If this confirms immunity to these viruses is already present, there is no need to give a vaccine.
  2. When an inoculation is necessary, add Immunity to the diet as far in advance of the injection as possible. This helps the immune system respond in a healthy manner. Immunity can be continued indefinitely to help the body cope successfully with exposure to pathogenic microbes, and to support strong, natural defences.
  3. 48 hours before the vaccine is given, start giving 2-3 drops of Injection Visit 3 times daily, Continue for 3 weeks afterwards. Repeat after an interval of 3 weeks.
