Abstract

The working group was set up by the Veterinary Products Committee (VPC)* in response to current concern in both the public domain and in the scientific community about possible health risks related to the routine vaccination of cats and dogs. The working group concluded that vaccination plays a very valuable role in the prevention and control of the major infectious diseases in cats and dogs. Although adverse reactions to vaccination, including lack of efficacy, occasionally occur, the working group concluded that the overall risk/benefit analysis strongly supports their continued use.
