Pet Vaccination

Pet vaccination in Nairobi; vaccines help prevent many illnesses and are an essential part of preventive care. Vaccinating your pets has been considered one of the primary ways to help them live happily and have a healthy life.

Pet Vaccination in Nairobi.

Vaccinations protect your pet from several highly contagious diseases such as canine distemper, parvovirus, and respiratory tract infections. Vaccinating your pets also protects them against transmissible diseases such as rabies that pose a risk to humans; many of these diseases pose serious health risks to your pet should they be exposed.

Why is it important to vaccinate my pet?

Often, there is no complete cure for life-threatening diseases such as distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus, and cat “flu.” Thus, vaccination is the only proven method of protecting against specific diseases your pet might be at risk of contracting. Vaccines work by introducing modified infectious organisms into your pet’s bloodstream, which stimulates the immune system and prepares the body to fight off disease without actually making them sick. Here in Nairobi, it is mandatory to have your pets vaccinated, especially against rabies.

Understanding Pet Vaccines

Vaccines for pets are divided into two main categories: core and non-core vaccines. Core vaccines are essential to prevent the spread of infectious diseases. Non-core vaccines may be considered optional, mainly depending on your pet’s risk of exposure to a particular disease. Your friendly veterinarians at Ducknet Veterinary Care are happy to discuss the vaccination protocol in Nairobi and according to your pet’s needs.



When Puppies start their vaccines at 8-9 weeks and have a second booster at 12 weeks of age together with rabies. A single booster vaccination each year is then given. Kittens start their vaccines at 8-9 weeks and have a second booster at 12 weeks plus the rabies vaccine. A single booster vaccination each year is then given.
Registration In *Nairobi, a license is issued when rabies is given. Registration is done yearly and is mandatory.  


In nearly every case in a veterinary clinic, prevention is by far less expensive than treating a pet’s medical condition. Therefore, it is true when it comes to their vaccinations. Treating your pet for parvovirus, for example, could require extensive treatment and additional costs for hospitalization and medication. However, following a regular vaccination can prevent common medical illnesses from happening, saving you for expenses and making you stress-free.
