    ETA; ive discussed this with 5 different vets at different clinics and even an RSPCA inspector as well as my vet nursing teachers. Every single one has said to vaccinate yearly is not just unnecessary but also excessive. If anything once every 3 years is more then enough.
    The studies have shown that once every year is adequate for the 3 core diseases in dogs but the immunity for kennel cough doesn't last as long. If your dog is at high risk of getting kennel cough (boarding kennels, dog shows etc) then they still should be done every year.

    My kids are fully vaccinated but my cat is not. He had all his vaccinations as a kitten but none since, he never goes to boarding kennels and has been well so far so I feel fine with it (he is 11)

    We always take the dogs out for walks, dog park or on holidays with us.

    I feel it's safer to have them up to date then risk a huge vet bill for something preventable. My cats are both completely indoors but with the dogs going away and they sometimes go to a lovely lady when we go away so it's safer.

    I'd never neglect to immunise my son and my pets are family so I feel safer doing it. Once a year doesn't bother me and our vet is great.

    Is there really no one on here who vaxs their pets but not kids? I'm really wanting to know why they decide this.

    Vaccinate children fully and cats are done for the first 2 years as mentioned by a PP, but then once every 3 years as they are 100% indoor cats and our vet doesnt believe yearly is necessary. Our puppy is fully vaccinated and will continue to do so yearly for now as we take him walking daily, out to dog parks and to the beach etc often.

    I've had a puppy with kennel cough before and it was awful for the poor thing. Our puppy didn't leave our house until 14 days after he was fully vaccinated.

    Thanks! Interesting response from that poster. I can't see how people can justify vaccinating pets but not their children.

    My kids arent vaxed and my cats/dog are.
    Mostly because the vet just gave them the shots while at the vet. Or they were given them before we had them.

    we dont make appointments just to get the animals vaccinated. I wouldnt make an appointment just to get my animals vaccinated. The every year thing is very over the top IMO
