Vaccinations and Boosters
A vaccination is an injection that is given to your pet to prevent them from catching nasty diseases, exactly the same as human babies receive. In most cases animals receive an initial vaccination when they’re a few weeks old, and another a couple of weeks later. They should then receive a booster injection once a year for the rest of their lives to keep their immunity levels high.
|Puppies should have 3 vaccinations. The first should be at 8 weeks and then the last two at 10 and 12 weeks. They can be protected against||Canine Parvovirus, Canine Distemper Virus, Infectious Canine Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, Parainfluenza, Kennel Cough & Rabies|
|Kittens should have their first vaccination at 9 weeks old, and their second 3 weeks later. They can be protected against||Cat Flu Viruses (Feline Herpes & Feline Calici Virus), Infectious Enteritis & Feline Leukaemia Virus|
|Kits (baby rabbits) only require one injection from 5 weeks old, and can be protected against:||Myxomatosis & Viral Haemorrhagic Disease (VHD)|
Please note: A vaccination typically protects your pet for up to 12 months. After that, your companion may be exposed to conditions that could make them very poorly. In cases where your pet misses their booster vaccinations, you may be required to start their course of vaccines again.
