Vaccinations

Vaccinate your pet for life

Vaccinating your new puppy or kitten (cat or rabbit) is vital part of their preventative healthcare plan in order to protect them against a range of harmful and potentially life-threatening diseases.

Why you should vaccinate your pet for life

If you think vaccinations are just for puppies and kittens and your pet ‘should be ok’ as they get older, think again. Protection shouldn’t stop after your pet’s first year, annual boosters will help to keep them protected as adults and give you peace of mind.

Some pet diseases are highly infectious and can cause major health problems for your pet and others, including death. An unprotected pet can contract some diseases at any age so as a responsible owner, you should protect your pet against common and fatal diseases for life.

Don’t risk it, make sure your pet is vaccinated for life. Book your pet’s next vaccination or booster in today with our friendly veterinary team.

Vaccines for kittens and adult cats

Kitten/Adult Cat Vaccine

This can be administered from as early as nine weeks of age and includes a full health check with a vet. It will protect your kitten against:

  • Feline infectious enteritis (parvovirus/feline panleukopenia)
  • Cat flu (feline herpes virus & feline calicivirus)
  • Vaccine can usually be combined with feline leukaemia (FeLV) vaccine.

Once your kitten has received an initial vaccination course they will then require yearly boosters. It’s important to keep up with annual booster vaccines to ensure your cat maintains optimum protection.

Indoor cats are at risk too as there’s always a chance they will venture outside through an open window or door, just as another cat could enter your home uninvited.

Rabies

If you are planning to travel overseas with your cat, we can also offer the rabies vaccine if the country you are travelling to or returning to requires it. You should check the D.E.F.R.A. website for up-to-date travel information.

Vaccines for puppies and adult dogs

Puppy/Adult Booster Vaccine

This can be given from as early as 6 weeks of age and includes a full health check with a vet. Our standard puppy/adult booster vaccine protects against:

  • Canine distemper
  • Canine parvovirus
  • Infectious canine hepatitis
  • Leptospirosis

Many of these are highly contagious and some can be fatal so it’s vital your dog is vaccinated.

Kennel Cough

We highly recommend all dogs are vaccinated against kennel cough, which can be contracted even from walking your dog in a park. We recommend all dogs are given an initial vaccine as a puppy, followed by annual boosters to ensure an optimum level of protection.

Rabies

If you are planning to travel overseas with your dog, we can also offer the rabies vaccine if the country you are travelling to or returning to requires it. You should check the D.E.F.R.A. website for up-to-date travel information.

Vaccines for kits and adult rabbits

Myxomatosis

Vaccines for myxomatosis can be given at around 6 weeks of age, followed by annual boosters, and can be the difference between life or death. Unvaccinated rabbits can be at risk of contracting myxomatosis, which is almost always fatal and requires euthanasia to prevent the animal from suffering.

Myxomatosis can spread rapidly through a population of wild rabbits via blood-sucking insects, which can also transmit this life-threatening disease to domestic rabbits living in the same area.

RVHD & RVHD-2

We highly recommend your rabbit is vaccinated against both strains of Rabbit Viral Haemorrhagic Disease (RVHD-1 & RVHD-2) as mortality rates are high.

RVHD can be spread through inanimate objects that have been contaminated with the virus including shoes, car tyres, clothing, pet food bowls etc.
