At the vet centre
we advise that all cats and dogs should be vaccinated against serious and potentially life threatening illnesses. We also recommend that annual boosters should be given to maintain that immunity.


DOGS can start their primary course at 8 weeks of age and require 2 injections 2 weeks apart and then boosters annually. The vaccines offer protection against Canine Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus, Parainfluenza and Leptospirosis. There is also an intra-nasal vaccine available against Kennel Cough, which is recommended if your dog is going to be in close contact with other dogs e.g. going into kennels, going to training classes, or being taken out by a dog walker.

The vaccine should be administered 7 days before the event.

CATS can start their primary course at 9 weeks of age and require 2 injections 3 weeks apart and then annual boosters. The vaccines offer protection against Feline Flu, Infectious Enteritis and Leukaemia. Your cats' requirements may vary depending on whether or not they will go outdoors, this will be discussed with your vet at the start of the course.

RABBITS can be vaccinated against Myxomatosis and Viral Haemorrhagic Disease, ask one of the vets for more information.
