Our surgery offers a range of vaccinations to protect your best friend against serious diseases.
Dogs and Puppies
Vaccination is a proven and effective way to keep your dog healthy from highly contagious and potentially fatal diseases. Even though some diseases are uncommon, vaccination is still recommended as many infectious agents responsible for these certain diseases, such as parvovirus, continue to be present in the environment for many years.
The major diseases we will vaccinate your dog against with a C5 vaccine include:
- Canine Distemper
- Infectious Canine Hepatitis
- Canine Parvovirus
- Canine Cough
We offer a comprehensive vaccination program for puppies that enables them to be protected from ten weeks old, allowing for earlier socialisation.
For adult dogs, we have changed to a three yearly vaccine protocol for protection against certain diseases to keep up to date with both the latest scientific research and local and international vaccine guidelines.
However, it is still very important that you continue with regularly scheduled visits so we can provide ongoing care necessary to keep your dog healthy and happy.
Annual health checks are an opportunity for us to carefully evaluate your dog’s general health, address any concerns you may have. Although your adult dog will only need to receive some vaccinations every three years, there are other vaccines that are still required annually, such as canine cough.
Cats and Kittens
The F3 vaccinations are essential to protect your kitten or cat from disease, and will enable them to go to a cattery should you ever require. The kitten vaccinations are given at six to eight weeks, 12 weeks and 16 weeks of age.
The major diseases we will vaccinate your cat against with a F3 include:
- Cat Flu
- Feline Panleucopania (Cat Parvo) - We have recently seen a re-emergence of this disease
- Yearly boosters are required to maintain immunity throughout your cat’s life
We also offer vaccination to protect against Feline Aids. Any cat that goes outside is at risk of contracting Feline AIDS from a bite from an infected cat. Cats require three doses at an intervaccination interval of two to four weeks. Once vaccinated, annual vaccination is recommended to maintain protection and address any concerns.
