Vaccinations For Pets

Your pet must be vaccinated against a number of illnesses, and Pets‘n’Vets can vaccinate your pet to help it remain in good health.

Dog vaccinations

Dog vaccinationDogs are vaccinated against a total of five illnesses routinely. These are Parvovirus, Distemper, Parainfluenza, Leptospira and Canine Adenovirus. While some of these have decreased in incidence, there is still evidence that a number of these exist in the Glasgow area – such as Parvovirus – especially in unvaccinated populations of dogs.

Two vaccinations are administered to protect your dog. The first injection is administered as early as 6 weeks and the second at 10 weeks. Keeping in quarantine from other dogs until 7 days after the 2nd injection is important to ensure that your pet is fully protected.

A separate vaccine is sometimes given to dogs for Kennel Cough. While this vaccine is not 100% protective, at Pets’n’Vets we recommend it since infectious coughing is now the most common infectious disease we see in dogs.

A rabies vaccination can also be administered. If interested, please visit the section on Pet Passports.

Cat vaccinations

Cat vaccinations are to prevent Feline Calici/Herpesvirus (which cause catflu) and Feline Leukaemia. The vaccines start at 9 weeks and there should be a 3-week gap between injections.

All cats should be covered for cat flu, and any cat which goes out and might meet other cats should be protected against Feline Leukaemia virus.

Rabbit vaccinations

Rabbit vaccinationRabbits should be vaccinated for Myxomatosis and a fatal disease called Viral Haemorrhagic Disease. These have increased in incidence over the last few years, and as these diseases are spread by biting flies, vaccination is highly recommended, even for indoor bunnies.

Ferret vaccinations

Ferrets are another species which can also be vaccinated. If you require further information on this, please contact Pets‘n’Vets.

All pet vaccines require annual boosters. This is also the time for your annual health check. We check teeth, eyes, ears, skin, heart, lungs and abdomen. As pets become older we also check for early stages of old age disease and will carry out urine and blood tests.
