Why do we vaccinate?

Vaccinations, when given regularly, give your pet long-term protection against serious and sometimes fatal infectious disease.

When do we vaccinate?

• We give dogs a first vaccination after 8 weeks of age and a second 4 weeks later (using the new Lepto 4). If the course is restarted in older dogs, two injections are required 4 weeks apart.

• Puppies should not be in contact with or allowed access to any place visited by unvaccinated dogs until 2 weeks after their second vaccination – we advise keeping your puppy in the house and/or your enclosed garden until then.

• Thereafter, annual vaccinations are required to maintain immunity against these potentially fatal diseases.

• In cats we give two injections three weeks apart at 9 and 12 wks or if the course is restarted in older cats, we give two injections three weeks apart.

At each annual vaccination your dog or cat will receive a full health check up – this is important as early detection of diseases/conditions can prevent any suffering in the long term.
