Vaccinations

Veterinary vaccinations: How we keep your pets safe

Our vets strongly believe that protection with vaccination is crucial to protect your pets.

However, this is based on what your pet needs for their lifestyle. We will ask questions to determine your pet’s risk factor and only recommend the necessary vaccinations for them.

Your pet’s annual vaccination appointment will also allow your vet to give them a general health check, which is an important aspect of their preventative care programme, and is an opportunity to assess their weight, check their heart and lungs, and look for any other signs that your pet may be unwell.

We understand that vaccinations can be a cause of concern and we are happy to discuss these with you to create the right plan for you and your pet.

Vaccinations for dogs

Puppies are normally vaccinated with two injections given two to four weeks apart, usually beginning at eight weeks of age. These vaccinations can be administered at our puppy clinics, or through specific appointments arranged with your vet.

The first year booster vaccination provides strong immunity against the viral components of the vaccination.

Annual vaccinations are then tailored to your pet’s risk profile, and they will only receive the necessary vaccinations with their health check.

Did you know?

Health checks and vaccines are required to validate your pet’s health insurance by some providers.

Vaccinations for rabbits

We vaccinate against two diseases in rabbits, myxomatosis and both strains of viral haemorrhagic disease. Both of which are essential , as these diseases are both incurable and potentially fatal.

Rabbits can be vaccinated from five weeks old, but we recommend speaking to your vet to discuss the best option for your pet. After their first vaccinations, rabbits will also require annual boosters to maintain their immunity .
