Cats and dogs are at risk from a number of nasty infectious diseases; thankfully it is possible to protect our pets by giving them regular vaccinations.
It is important to note that not all vaccinations on the market are not of the same quality, we regularly perform a review of our vaccination protocols to ensure that our patients receive only the safest and most effective vaccines.
We are also able to offer annual titre testing of your pets’ immunity levels by taking a blood sample.
Cats are vaccinated against cat flu, enteritis and leukaemia. Adult cats require an annual booster vaccination to maintain an adequate level of immunity. For indoor cats that will not go outdoors and mix with other cats we can vaccinate against cat flu and enteritis only.
Vaccinations are recommended for all dogs against Canine Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus, Parainfluenza (the viral part of kennel cough) and Leptospirosis. Adult dogs require an annual booster vaccination to maintain an adequate level of immunity. An extra vaccination for Bordetella (the bacterial part of kennel cough) can be given in addition to the standard annual vaccination.
Rabbits should be vaccinated annually against Myxomatosis and Viral Haemorrhagic Disease (VHD Strain 1 and VHD Strain 2). It is important to point out that these diseases can be spread between rabbits but also by insects, so house rabbits should also receive these vaccinations.
