Dogs are routinely vaccinated against:
Distemper, Canine Hepatitis, Parvovirus and Leptospirosis.
The initial course in puppies consists of 2 or 3 injections over 4 weeks from the age of 6 weeks old with the final injection being given once the pup is at least 10 weeks old. The precise timings of the injections can be tailored to your circumstances to ensure that your new pup can meet the rest of the world as soon as possible. The distemper, hepatitis and parvovirus components of the vaccine have been proven to last for 3 years and so are not given every year whereas the leptospirosis vaccine is an annual injection.
Additionally, we offer vaccination against Infectious Bronchitis or kennel cough which is increasingly seen outwith the kennel environment. This vaccine is administered as drops which go into the nose rather than as an injection.
Cats are routinely vaccinated against:
Cat Flu – consisting of feline herpes virus and feline calicivirus, Feline Enteritis or panleucopaenia and, for cats which go outside or meet other cats, Feline Leukaemia Virus.
Rabies vaccination is only carried out in pets that will be travelling abroad and can be done from 3 months old.
