Puppies are vaccinated using a modern vaccine regime which means that they are fully immunised at 11 weeks of age. When using the traditional vaccine regime full immunity is not acquired until 18 weeks of age, meaning that puppies had a larger risk of exposure to potentially fatally diseases.
Using the modern regime also means that your pup can start going for walks at 11 weeks of age and can begin socialising with other dogs at that age which is important for their development.
Kittens require three vaccinations - one at 6-8 weeks of age, a second one at 10-12 weeks and a final vaccination at 14-16 weeks, after which they acquire full immunity to the components of the vaccine. The standard vaccination protocol for cats involves vaccinating against feline panleukopaenia, feline calicivirus and feline herpesvirus (F3 vaccine). However, for cats that will be spending a considerable amount of time outdoors we recommend that owners also consider vaccinating for FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus).
Please note that puppies and kittens receiving vaccinations also receive a full clinical examination at no extra charge and all your questions regarding the best care for your pet will be addressed.
Dog vaccinations and annual health check:
An annual health check is a vital part of your dog's health care plan as it provides the ideal opportunity to thoroughly check your dog and also to discuss any questions you may have regarding your pet. Vaccinations are often performed at the same time. When using the modern vaccination regime, diseases such as canine parvovirus, canine hepatitis and canine distemper only require a booster every three years. Bordetella and Parainfluenza, which are the leading causes of Canine Cough (previously known as Kennel Cough), do not generate such long lasting immunity and need to be boosted yearly.
Cat vaccinations and annual health checks:
Cat vaccinations need to be performed on an annual basis. Every vaccination includes a thorough annual health check which is as important, if not more important, than the vaccination itself. The check up identifies any emerging health problems and also provides an opportunity to discuss the various aspects of your cat's care that interest you.
