Vaccinations

Don’t leave your pet vulnerable to nasty illnesses –

Make sure they are protected with regular vaccines

Domestic pets are susceptible to a variety of species-specific illnesses and conditions, and therefore need additional protection – just like you might have had vaccinations in the past. These injections should be given to animals in the first few months of their lives, and then boosters will be required annually to ensure their immunity levels remain high enough to protect them.

Dogs receive protection against:

  • Distemper
  • Infectious Canine Hepatitis
  • Parvovirus
  • Leptospirosis
  • Parainfluenza Virus

They can also be vaccinated against some of the causes of kennel cough, which is particularly recommended if your dog is going to be spending time with other dogs – in day care or boarding kennels, for example.  If you are planning to take your pet abroad do talk to us about Rabies vaccinations. We also are able to vaccinate against Lymes disease.

Cats should be vaccinated against:

  • Feline Leukaemia
  • Feline Infectious Enteritis
  • Feline Viral Respiratory Disease (cat ‘flu)

Rabbits need protection against:

  • Myxomatosis
  • Viral Haemorrhagic Disease (VHD)

It’s important to keep up to date with your pet’s vaccinations to ensure they are always properly protected; we will send you a reminder when their next booster is due to prompt you to book an appointment with us.
