Pet owners are strongly advised by the chief veterinary officer to consider vaccinating their pets to prevent diseases which can prove to be fatal. They should consult their private vet for advice based on the individual pet’s risk and circumstances. General advice on vaccination can be obtained from a number of sources including from the National Office of Animal Health.
