Ensuring your pet is up to date with their vaccinations is very important to prevent deadly diseases. Vaccinations involve your pet having a small injection under their skin that allows their body to become familiar with the inactivated disease particles. That way if they are ever exposed to the real disease, they are ready to fight it.
Currently, in Australia, there are no commercially available vaccines for parrots, reptiles, amphibians, guinea pigs, rats or mice. However, we routinely vaccinate rabbits and ferrets and recommend it an important part of their preventative health program.
