    The People's Dispensary for Sick Animals (PDSA) charity say a quarter of dog owners now say their pet hasn't had any vaccines when they're puppies - equating to 2.2 million dogs being left open to horrible diseases.

    The RSPCA have issued a stark warning that the boom in online material is driving pet owners to skip potentially life saving vaccines for their cats and dogs.

    Animal welfare charity Blue Cross says two of the vaccines commonly skipped - parvovirus, a virus that attacks cells in a dog's intestines, and distemper, which is basically canine to measles - can both be fatal to dogs.
