Dog Vaccinations

Dogs are prone to a number of infectious diseases, some of which can be protected against by vaccination. We advise an initial vaccination at 7-8 weeks, followed by a second vaccination at 12 weeks, and a final vaccination at 16 weeks of age. A booster is required at six months of age, then again 12 months later.  Each visit we will update and sign the vaccination certificate given initially.


After these initial vaccinations, core vaccines consisting of Parvo, distemper and Hepatitis will be required every 3 years.  Other vaccines will remain annual where a full health check will be performed.

Routine vaccination offered by us when you adopt a puppy includes protection against all of the following diseases:

  • Distemper

  • Parvovirus

  • Hepatitis

  • Canine Parainfluenza (one of the causative agents of tracheobronchitis, otherwise known as kennel cough).

  • Canine Bordetella bronchiseptica (bacterial kennel cough)

  • Leptospirosis (animals infected with pathogenic forms of leptospira excrete the organisms in urine, and are highly infective to humans who come into contact with infected urine. If treated in the early stages of an infection, antibiotic treatment is usually successful).                            


Cat Vaccinations
We recommend that all kittens have a primary vaccination course at 8 and 12 weeks for the following feline diseases, then at 6 months of age and again 12 months later.  Boosters should then be administered annually.

Vaccinations for your cat include the following:

  • Feline Infectious Enteritis (FIE)

  • Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis

  • Feline Calicivirus

  • Feline Chlamydia

  • Feline Leukaemia (FeLV)
