Vaccinations

Vaccinations are essential in protecting your animal from infectious disease and an initial course of vaccines and then annual boosters will protect them from these. Many of these diseases are fatal and are always present in the general animal population.

Dogs – Vaccinate puppies from 8 weeks of age with the second booster at 12 weeks (a 4 week interval is necessary between the  two injections) This injection covers diseases Distemper, Leptospirosis (4 strains), Parvovirus and Infectious Canine Hepatitis (associated canine adenovirus 2). Your dog can also be vaccinated against kennel cough.

 

Cats – kittens may be vaccinated from 9 weeks of age with a second vaccination given at 12 weeks (a 3 week interval is necessary between the two injections) The vaccination is used to reduce the clinical signs caused by infection with feline calicivirus (FCV) and feline herpes virus type 1 (FHV) and to prevent the clinical signs, leucopenia and virus excretion caused by infection with feline panleucopenia virus (FPLV). We also recommend vaccinating for Feline Leukaemia Virus.

Rabbits – We recommend vaccination against Viral Haemorrhagic Disease and Myxomatosis.
