Vaccinations

 

Vaccinations protect pets from potentially deadly diseases. They’ve been helping to protect pets from getting sick and saving lives over the last few decades. We consider vaccinations as a focal point of your pet’s health and that’s why we are here to ensure your pets including dogs, cats and rabbits are protected with vaccinations and annual boosters.

 

Dogs


Dogs should be vaccinated against parvovirus, distemper, canine infectious hepatitis, parainfluenza and leptospirosis.

Also remember that, if you are putting your dog into kennels they should be vaccinated against infectious tracheobronchitis otherwise known as kennel cough. Dogs or cats going abroad need to be vaccinated against rabies as the UK is a rabies-free country since 1922. If you plan to travel with your pet outside of the UK, please contact us before you leave the country.

 

Cats


Cats should be vaccinated against feline infectious enteritis and cat flu. They should also be protected against feline leukaemia.

Vaccinations are given at nine and twelve weeks old, with boosters every twelve months.

 

Rabbits


Rabbits should be vaccinated against myxomatosis and viral haemorrhagic disease from two months old, with annual boosters.

All our vaccinations and boosters include a full physical examination, including a check on the eyes, ears, teeth, gums, mouth, throat and glands in neck.

Their chests and abdomens will also be checked, and their coats combed for any fleas or other parasites. Also included free of charge are services such as nail clipping, anal gland emptying and ear/eye cleaning.

If you have any questions about vaccinations or your pet is due their boosters, please contact us.
