We advise that all our cats, dogs and rabbits are regularly vaccinated to provide protection against potentially fatal illnesses. Their yearly booster visit also gives us the opportunity to give them a full check over and answer any questions you might have, as well as give advice on topics such feeding, worming, flea control, dental health and so on. Animals should have yearly booster vaccinations – this is important as your pet’s immunity may fade with time without it, leaving them unprotected.
Dogs are vaccinated against Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus, Parainfluenza, Coronavirus andLeptospirosis. Puppies receive a course of two injections given three weeks apart, and can be vaccinated from 7 weeks old. After this they should get a booster every year.
Infectious Bronchitis (Kennel Cough) is a highly contagious disease spread between dogs in close contact, e.g. at kennels, shows, classes, meeting in the park etc. An intranasal vaccine is available which can help protect against it.
