​Vaccinations

Vaccinations play an important role in building up your pet’s immunity and maintaining good health by protecting them from infectious diseases. Vaccinating a healthy pet is far more effective than treating a sick pet.

Puppies and kittens should receive a series of vaccinations starting at 6-8 weeks of age. If you have just welcomed a new pet into your home, feel free to bring them down to one of our clinics to meet the staff and discuss your personal vaccination requirements.

Cats are vaccinated against feline panleukopenia, rhinotracheitis and calicivirus. We also strongly recommend to vaccinate against FIV, the feline aids virus.

Dogs are vaccinated against canine distemper, parvovirus, hepatitis, parainfluenza and leptospirosis. These are all given as a combination vaccination, so they only need a single injection. We also recommend to vaccinate your dog against Kennel Cough (Bordatella), especially if you are planning for your dog to be boarded at a boarding kennel.

Feel free to check with us well before a planned stay in a kennel or cattery, so we can ensure your pet is covered and vaccinations are up to date.

If you wish to make an appointment for your pet’s vaccination please contact your nearest clinic.
