Canine diseases covered by our puppy vaccine

Canine Distemper

Canine distemper is a contagious and serious viral illness which affects dogs, foxes, skunks, wolves and other species of wildlife. Ferrets can be a carrier of this virus. The canine distemper virus is airborne and can also be contracted by direct or indirect (bedding, bowls, utensils etc) contact with an infected animal. First it attacks a dog’s tonsils, then the respiratory, urogenital, gastrointestinal and nervous systems. Young and non-vaccinated dogs are most at risk.

Canine Parvovirus

Canine parvovirus is a highly contagious and dangerous disease. It can produce a life-threatening illness, where the virus attacks by quickly dividing body cells, most severely affecting the dog’s intestinal tract. Parvovirus also attacks white blood cells, and in young dogs, it can damage the heart muscle and cause lifelong cardiac problems. Due to the contagion risk and to stop suffering, the most likely outcome if a dog has contracted parvovirus, unfortunately is euthanasia.   

Infectious Canine Hepatitis

Infectious canine hepatitis is an acute liver infection in dogs caused by canineadenovirus type-1 (CAV-1). The virus is spread in the faeces, urine, blood, saliva, and nasal discharge of an infected dog.

Leptospirosis

Leptospirosis is an infection of bacterial spirochetes, which dogs acquire when subspecies of the Leptospira interrogans penetrate the skin and spread through the body by way of the bloodstream. This bacteria can reproduce in the eyes, kidneys, liver, central nervous and reproductive systems.

After the initial infection, fever and infection of the blood quickly develop, however symptoms can be resolved with the reactive increase of antibodies, which clear the bacteria from dog’s system. The dog’s recovery and organ repair will depend on the strength of their immune system and ability to eradicate the infection completely. The Leptospira spirochete bacteria can still remain and reproduce in the dog’s kidneys and infect the urine. If kidney and liver infection progresses, these organs can be severely damaged and this can be fatal. Younger animals with lesser developed immune systems are most at risk for severe complications.

Did you know that Leptospira spirochete bacteria can be passed onto humans and other animals, with children being most at risk? Vaccination against this zoonotic disease is vital.

We also provide vaccinations & boosters for kennel cough

Kennel Cough

Kennel cough is the common name for infectious tracheobronchitis, a canine respiratory infection caused by Bordetella bronchiseptica and canine parainfluenza virus. Inflammation of the upper airway is caused by pathogens attacking the cilia lining of the respiratory tract. Kennel cough is contagious and is not just caught from putting your pet in boarding kennels, as the name suggests. Your dog can pick up kennel cough from other infected dogs, simply by mixing with them on a walk in the park.
