Booster Vaccinations

Pet Vaccinations

Why Vaccinate your pets

Vaccinating your pet is one of the most important things that you can do as this will help your pet to live a long, happy, and healthy life.

The vaccines provide antibodies against contagious, life-threatening diseases that your pet may be exposed to in their lifetime. Prevention is better than cure, especially when a lot of the diseases which we vaccinate against do not have a cure, are potentially fatal and/or are very costly to treat.

Booster Vaccination FAQ’s

Vaccinations are needed to:

  • Protect our pets from life threatening diseases
  • Create or boost our pets immunity to certain diseases
  • Prevent pets from passing on a disease such as Leptospirosis, which can be passed from animals to people

Cats:

Primary vaccination:

– first injection in kittens from 8 weeks of age

– second injection 3 or 4 weeks later.

After the primary course, you will only need to maintain your annual booster.

 

Dogs:

– first injection in puppies from 7 weeks of age

– second injection 3 or 4 weeks later.

After the primary course, you will only need to maintain your annual booster.

 

Rabbits:

Typically, your rabbit can be vaccinated from seven weeks old with the combined Myxomatosis RHD Plus vaccine and immunity takes three weeks to develop. This vaccination gives protection against the three main rabbit diseases – Myxomatosis, Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease 1 (RHD1) and Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease 2 (RHD2).

If you’re planning on taking your pet abroad, they might need extra vaccinations. They won’t be able to get a Health Certificate or travel abroad without having up-to-date vaccinations, which typically includes the rabies vaccination and Worming. Please give us a call to book in with one of our Official Veterinarians who can advise you on the new pet travel protocols.

  • Canine distemper
  • Canine parvovirus
  • Kennel cough
  • Leptospirosis
  • Parainfluenza

Different vaccines last for different times, as immunity can diminish or weaken. Your vet will provide you with a vaccination record which will let you know when your vaccination is due.
