Vaccinations are an essential part of good pet healthcare. A simple annual injection can provide protection for your dog or cat against a range of potentially fatal diseases. Getting your pets vaccinated as young as possible is crucial. Particularly with dogs, we believe getting your pet socialising and getting used to the outside world and people is essential from a young age.
All vaccinated animals will receive a vaccination record card, showing which vaccines they have received and when. On bringing your pet in for a booster, we will give them a routine checkup to look for any other health issues. Vaccinations are essential if you plan on getting a pet passport – please ask us for more information about this service.
Our vaccinations protocols give your puppy immunity within three weeks of the first injection, allowing you to get them out and socialising earlier. (Giving you a more well-adjusted dog!) The first vaccination can be administered from 8 weeks of age, and provides protection from:
Other disease that we can offer vaccination against are rabies (which is required for travel outside of the UK) and kennel cough..
Our vaccination protocols for kittens can be started from nine weeks old, and provide immunity after 4 weeks. We offer a vaccine against cat flu and enteritis for cats that stay indoors, but more adventurous felines that go outside will also need immunisation against the Feline Leukaemia Virus (FeLV). This is a fatal condition that is contracted when cats fight or come into contact by grooming or sharing food or water sources.
Our routine cat vaccinations provide immunity against:
- Panleucopaenia Virus
- Rhinotracheitis Virus
- Feline Leukaemia Virus
