Why Exotic Pets Need Routine Vaccinations
Consistent yearly vaccinations are key to continually safeguarding your exotic pet from diseases. Just like vaccines for humans, dogs, and cats, the efficacy of exotic pet vaccines diminishes over time. To keep your pet rabbit, ferret, or skunk at peak protection levels, we need to administer their booster shots annually. Waiting too long between these boosters could make your pet more susceptible to infections.
