Vaccines stimulate the immune system in making antibodies that destroy disease-causing microorganisms entering the body. CAT AND DOG VACCINATION protects your PET from highly contagious and deadly infectious diseases. Vaccination prevents a pet from contracting an infectious disease or developing much milder clinical symptoms than non-vaccinated animals.


Regarding VACCINE ALLERGIC REACTION, most pets respond well to vaccines. VACCINE SIDE EFFECTS are possible after each VACCINATION, but the risk should be weighed against the many benefits and protection of your PET and your family from deadly infectious diseases.

Post-vaccination side effects that may occur are usually mild and occur a few hours after VACCINATION. Possible side effects are swelling and soreness at the injection site, mild fever, and decreased appetite and activity. If the signs last longer than 24-48 hours, you must go to the vet. After intranasal vaccination, sneezing, mild cough, and runny nose may be observed 2 to 5 days after vaccination.

An ALLERGIC REACTION AFTER VACCINATION is a serious side effect that occurs a few minutes to a few hours after VACCINATION and requires urgent veterinary intervention. Symptoms include severe vomiting and diarrhea, lumps on the skin, difficulty breathing and swelling of the snout, face, neck, and around the eyes, and collapse. A hard painless lump may also form at the injection site that will disappear after a few weeks.

A serious SIDE EFFECT AFTER CATS VACCINATION is a tumor (sarcoma) at the injection site. With the advancement of vaccination techniques and methods, this side effect is becoming less common. If your PET has had any of the side effects, be sure to tell your veterinarian before the next vaccination.


The vaccination schedule for each PET is determined by the veterinarian because it depends on the geographical area where the animal lives and the way of life. It is important that the owner follows the instructions completely and does not miss VACCINATIONS.

KITTENS and PUPPIES do not have a developed immune system and are very susceptible to infectious diseases. Incomplete VACCINATION leads to incomplete protection and pups are more susceptible to infectious diseases. What surely is important to emphasize are the already mentioned benefits that your PET gets from the vaccine in relation to the PRICE OF VACCINATION. Therefore, we VACCINE our PETS, to protect not only them but ourselves and our family!
