Vaccinations

Prevention is better than cure

Vaccinations are an important part of preventative healthcare and are available for cats, dogs and rabbits.

We routinely vaccinate cats for feline panleucopaenia virus, feline rhinotracheitis virus and feline calicivirus infections. We also recommend the feline leukaemia vaccine for cats with outdoor access.

We routinely cover dogs for canine parvovirus, distemper and canine adenovirus with a booster every three years after their initial course. We also recommend vaccination with the leptospirosis L4 vaccination to cover for all the strains of leptospirosis which are endemic to this area. This requires a booster every year due to it being an inactive vaccine.

We now offer the triple vaccine for rabbits to cover against myxomatosis, RHD-1 and RHD-2 in one injection with a yearly booster.​

Did You Know?

Leptospirosis is a zoonotic disease. Dogs with the disease are infectious to people.

Vaccines are essentially a method of “educating” your dog’s immune system so that it remembers how to fight a particular infection. They are safe and can prevent a great deal of disease and suffering.

Parvovirus is a highly contagious disease which causes serious gastrointestinal signs and can be fatal.

All three diseases we vaccinate rabbits against can be fatal and are easily spread by flies, wild rabbits and environmental contamination.
