Vaccinations and boosters

Vaccination is the only safe way to provide immunity against a number of dangerous diseases which continue to infect dogs, cats and rabbits in the UK. When kept up to date, as recommended by your Veterinary Clinic, regular vaccination can help keep your pet protected for life.

Vaccinations work by injecting a small and entirely harmless dose of the diseases, which encourages the body to build immunity and the ability to fight infections. Vaccinations can protect your pet from common life threatening diseases they come into contact with in their environment on a daily basis.

We provide a full veterinary health check and physical examination included in the price of the vaccination. Annual vaccinations can occasionally help detect physical abnormalities and medical conditions earlier when they can be more manageable to treat.

Dog Vaccinations

The initial puppy vaccination course can be started from as young as six weeks of age and consist of two injections given two to four weeks apart and will vaccinate against Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus and Leptospirosis. We recommend topping the puppy primary vaccinations up annually from the date of the first vaccination to ensure sufficient level of cover is maintained for your dog.

We also recommend administering a Kennel Cough vaccine at the time of the primary vaccinations or annual booster vaccine. The Kennel Cough vaccination is administered by placing a few drops of the vaccine in the dog’s nose and helps prevent the common and often distressing respiratory disease in dogs. This vaccination can be administered from three weeks of age and covers against Bordetella bronchiseptica and canine parainfluenza virus for twelve months.

We provide a discount on the Kennel Cough vaccination if it is administered alongside your pet’s primary or booster vaccination.

Cat Vaccinations

The initial kitten vaccination course consists of two injections given three to four weeks apart and will vaccinate against Feline Infectious Enteritis, Cat Flu and Feline Leukaemia. We recommend topping the kitten primary vaccinations up annually from the date of the first vaccination to ensure sufficient level of cover is maintained for your cat.

Rabbit Vaccinations

Rabbits do not require an initial course of vaccinations, they do however require two booster vaccinations annually to protect them from severe life threatening diseases.

Rabbits can be vaccinated from five weeks of age with the RHD1-Myxo vaccination which will safeguard them against myxomatosis and viral haemorrhagic disease strain 1. They can then be vaccinated from ten weeks of age with the RHD2 vaccination which safeguards them against the second strain of viral haemorrhagic disease.

These vaccinations need to be administered at least two weeks apart and are both required to be injected annually to maintain protection, in high risk environments we would recommend injecting the RHD2 vaccination every six months to provide protection.
