Vaccination is essential to ensure your pet remains healthy. Many deadly diseases can be easily prevented by vaccinating your pet. This is important as often these diseases can be fatal even with treatment.
Our vaccination policy is in line with the World Small Animal Veterinary Association’s recommendation that every animal should be immunised, but that dogs no longer need to be vaccinated against all diseases every year. We are reducing the number of vaccines we give to our patients where possible.
Your pet’s vaccination protocol depends on their lifestyle, their previous vaccinations and their health status. The following are common diseases we vaccinate against:
- Hepatitis or Adenovirus
- Canine Cough
- Panleukopaenia virus (or Feline Enteritis)
- Feline Leukaemia virus
- Feline Immunodeficiency virus
If you are unsure if your pet is adequately protected, there is also the option of Titre Testing for some of these diseases. This assesses your pet’s antibody levels against certain diseases, and can give us information about when booster vaccinations are required.
