Vaccinations

Just like us, pets can be at risk of catching a range of infectious diseases, some of them potentially deadly. As veterinary medicine has advanced, prevention of disease has become a priority. One of the best means of prevention is by creating immunity in your pet. This is achieved by an annual vaccination. Diseases controlled by vaccination:

DOGS

  • Canine Distemper Infectious Canine Hepatitis Leptospirosis Parvovirus Canine Parainfluenza Virus Bordetella Bronchiseptica (Kennel Cough) Rabies

CATS

  • Feline Infectious Enteritis (or Panleucopenia) Feline Leukaemia Feline Herpes Virus and Feline Callcivirus (Cat Flu) Feline Chlamydia (mainly for breeding cats) Rabies

Frequently Asked Questions

Vaccinations are a necessity for keeping your cat healthy, particularly as a kitten. But which vaccines and when should they be given? Let’ start at the beginning. A vaccination, which is sometimes also referred to as an immunization, is a medication which stimulates an immune response in your pet to provide protection against a particular disease, or group of diseases.

For both cats and dogs, the initial vaccination course is in two parts.
Kittens: The 1st part of the vaccination is given from 8 weeks of age and the 2nd vaccination is given 3 weeks later
Puppies: The 1st part of the vaccination is given from 6-8 weeks of age and the 2nd vaccination is given at 10 weeks of age.
We recommend that you keep your new kitten indoors, and not take puppies into public places until a week after their 2nd vaccination to ensure they are fully immune before socialising. Puppies can be taken out into private gardens as long as no pets from outside of the household have access to this area.
Find out from your breeder or rescue centre whether or not your pet has already had the first vaccination. Over vaccinating is not good, but many times the vaccination history is fake.
YES. After having the initial vaccination course, your pet needs annual booster vaccinations to ensure adequate immunity at all times.
Although there is a little bit of flexibility with the timing of booster vaccinations, if left too long, not only will your pet’s immunity be reduced, but the initial 2-part vaccination course may also need to be restarted. This is especially important if you plan to travel with your pet in the future.
Vaccines help prepare the body’s immune system to fight the invasion of disease-causing organisms. Vaccines contain antigens, which look like the disease-causing organism to the immune system but don’t actually cause disease. When the vaccine is introduced to the body, the immune system is mildly stimulated. If a dog is ever exposed to the real disease, his immune system is now prepared to recognize and fight it off entirely or reduce the severity of the illness.
