We recommend that all dogs, cats and rabbits are vaccinated against many serious and contagious diseases.
Dogs and Puppies
Are vaccinated against Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis and Parvovirus. An intra-nasal vaccine is available to protect against Bordetella bronchiseptica (kennel cough). An initial course of two vaccines are given 4 weeks apart with immunity being maintained by annual boosters thereafter.
Puppies can be vaccinated from 6 weeks of age to provide the earliest possible immunity which has advantages for socialisation. However to maximise immunity, it is best to have the second vaccination from 12 weeks of age, therefore we start most puppies innoculations at 8 weeks of age.
Cats and Kittens
Are vaccinated against Herpes virus, Calcivirus (cat flu), Panleucopenia (enteritis) and leukaemia. An initial course of two vaccines are given 3 to 4 weeks apart with immunity being maintained by annual boosters thereafter. Kittens can be vaccinated from 9 weeks of age.
Are vaccinated against myxomatosis and Viral Haemorrhagic Diarrhoea (VHD). Rabbits can be vaccinated from 5 weeks of age.
Vaccines are proven to control the above diseases, so please do not let your pet’s immunity lapse. You are
most welcome to discuss with the veterinary surgeon the best frequency for vaccinations and boosters for the health of your pet.
