Vaccinations and boosters
We recommend all dogs, cats and rabbits are vaccinated and receive annual boosters to help protect them against infectious and potentially deadly diseases.
Initial Vaccinations and Boosters –
A vaccination regime normally comprises of an initial vaccination course followed up by an annual booster. Starting your pet’s course of vaccinations as early as possible in their life is the best way to ensure their continued good health. A good, responsible breeder will ensure that the first initial vaccination is done prior to the animal moving to its new home. It is important to note- if an animal has not recieved its first vaccination prior to you adoption them, they have therefore likely never had a health check with a vet. A few weeks later a second top-up vaccination is required, followed by annual booster vaccinations.
If you are travelling abroad with your pet, or you intend to place your pet into boarding kennels, additional vaccinations may be required such as rabies or kennel cough. It is never too late for your companion pet to receive the defence they deserve, even if they are older and have never been vaccinated before.
Our standard Vaccination & Annual Booster Regime cover the following diseases –
- Dogs – Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvo, Leptospirosis
- Cats – Calicivirus and Herpes (Cat Flu), Panleucopenia
and Feline Leukaemia Virus
- Rabbits – Myxomatosis and Viral Haemorrhagic Disease
including the New strain (VHD-2)
Kennel Cough (Infectious Bronchitis) Vaccination –
We strongly recommend that all dogs are vaccinated against Kennel Cough every year, and it is a requirement if you intend to place your dog into kennels at any point. The kennel cough vaccine is administered into the nose, rather than as an injection.
Kennel Cough is not part of the Routine Vaccination/Booster Regime and will therefore incur an additional fee. However, Pet Health Club members receive 10% off their Kennel Cough vaccinations.
If you are unsure of your pet’s vaccination status, then please call us and we can try and assist you.
Before administering a vaccination, your animal will recieve a full health check included in the consultation. We recommend regular health checks every six months throughout your pet’s life.
