We provide all of your dog, cat and other small animal’s vaccinations, including yearly boosters, new vaccine courses and rabies vaccines.


Boosters are required annually to protect your pet against various diseases. During this appointment, your pet is given a full examination where any possible issues can be highlighted and discussed.



Dogs


Dogs are vaccinated, with annual boosters recommended, against a number of viruses:



  • Distemper, a virus disease which causes chest and gastro-intestinal damage which can cause brain damage or even death

  • The potentially fatal liver disease viral hepatitis which causes kidney damage

  • Leptospirosis, which affects mammals including humans causing severe liver and kidney damage



Unless vaccinated, dogs are also at risk of parvovirus, which causes severe gastroenteritis and is fatal in almost half of cases.


Also, do not forget kennel cough, which although not compulsory is necessary if your dog is staying in kennels. It is highly transmissible even in non-kennelled dogs.



Cats


For cats there are two main vaccines.


One protects against cat flu, colds and viral enteritis while the other is against the Feline Leukaemia Virus.


Feline viral enteritis carries a high risk of fatality but thanks to vaccination, this is rare these days. Very few will survive the disease, which is spread between cats.



Rabbits


Vaccinations are given against two rabbit diseases – myxomatosis and viral haemorrhagic disease.
