We routinely vaccinate dogs, cats and rabbits for a number of fatal infectious diseases.
There are a number of infectious diseases that can be fatal or cause illness. These diseases are contagious and require vaccination to produce immunity to these disease. These diseases include Canine Parvovirus, Infectious Hepatitis (Canine adenovirus type-2), Distemper virus and Canine Parainfluenza. We also offer a vaccine for kennel cough (Infectious Tracheobronchitis). Kennel cough is required if your dog is in close contact with other dogs such as at boarding kennels and shows/pet days!
Puppies can be vaccinated from 6 WEEKS of age and require a booster 4-6 WEEKS later. It is important to vaccinate soon after reaching 6 weeks old, this is because the immunity passed down from the mother is on the decline meaning that the puppies are susceptible to infectious diseases.
Yearly boosters are required and allows for an annual health check.
Cats are vaccinated against Feline flu (Herpes virus, Calici virus and Chlamydophila Felis) and Feline Panleukopenia. These vaccinations stimulate systemic immunity and aid in the prevention of disease. Cat flu is incredibly contagious and causes severe illness. Fortunately Panleucopenia is rare these days, however it is still a threat and is commonly fatal.
Kittens can be vaccinated from 8 WEEKS and will receive a second vaccination (>1month) over 12 weeks of age.
