The aim of this webinar is to discuss how the latest global guidelines for the vaccination of dogs and cats might be applied in UK veterinary practice. The presentation will review core and non-core vaccination for puppies and kittens, as well as adult dogs and high-risk and low-risk adult cats. Decision-making for selection of non-core vaccines will be considered. Incorporating in-house serological testing for canine core virus antigens (canine distemper virus, canine adenovirus and canine parvovirus-2) and feline parvovirus into the vaccine decision-making process will be discussed. The delivery of vaccination as one part of a holistic preventive healthcare package (via the annual health check) is a key concept to communicate to clients and an ideal strategy for practice building.
