Dogs and cats, young and old are at risk from a number of diseases that can result in permanent health damage or even death.
However, vaccination and regular boosters can prevent these diseases and allow the veterinary surgeon to examine your pet and to assess his or her health and to advise you on maintaining a healthy pet.
At Sheriff's Highway Veterinary Hospital we approach vaccination from an individual animal basis - we tailor protection to your pets needs. If you have any concerns regarding our vaccination protocols please feel free to discuss them at your pet's annual wellness examination.
1st vaccination is generally given at 8 weeks of age though it can be given from 6 weeks of age.
2nd Vaccination is from 10 weeks of age and at least 2 weeks after the first.
Puppies can be socialised one week after the 2nd vaccine.
Vaccinations protect against:
Options in addition to routine course:
Kennel Cough (caused by Bordetella bronchiseptica)
For your dog to be fully vaccinated they will need to be given an annual booster. If your dog has not had their annual booster more then 3 months after the due date you will need to re-start your dogs vaccines as if it were a puppy.
1st Vaccination can be given from 8 weeks old.
2nd Vaccination is given 3-4 weeks later at a minimum of 12 weeks of age.
Cat vaccinations give protection against:
Feline viral infectious respiratory disease "Cat Flu"
Feline Leukaemia Virus (FeLV)
We are aware that there is a degree of controversy regarding vaccinations, especially the requirement for annual vaccination. We are happy to discuss and adapt the vaccination regime to individual animals rather than provide a blanket approach.
