.html5-video-container video::-webkit-media-controls { display: none !important; }
As a pet owner, it is important to ensure that your furry friend stays healthy and protected from various diseases. One of the most effective ways to achieve this is through vaccinations. In Switzerland, there are both mandatory and desirable cat vaccinations. In this article, we will discuss each of them, including their optimal timing and the number of revaccinations required.
