Reducing the risk of infectious and parasitic disease in pets

During the COVID-19 pandemic, many routine pet vaccinations have been temporarily suspended at veterinary practices. In normal circumstances, the best protection for pets is to keep vaccination up to date. The duration of protection will vary depending on the individual animal and the vaccine concerned; therefore the best advice is to take measures which reduce the risk of your pet being exposed to infection until vaccination can be re-started. The following advice should help you keep your pets safe during these unprecedented times. It is also advised you reach out to your own veterinary practice because as the situation evolves guidance will change and veterinary practices may have differing protocols in place.
