Dogs are vaccinated against canine distemper, canine parvovirus, part of the kennel cough complex, and hepatitis and leptospirosis. A complete course of vaccination is essential to provide protection in puppies. In the adult dog yearly vaccination is necessary to maintain immunity. In addition, where dogs are to be boarded in kennels, we recommend that an intra- nasal vaccine is given to protect them against Kennel Cough. This vaccine is valid for six months. Cats are vaccinated routinely against cat 'flu' and enteritis and in addition, we recommend that you ought to have your cat protected against feline leukaemia. Annual boosters follow an initial course.
A Healthy Pet is a Happy Pet, and a regular assessment will help us ensure that your pet will stay that way.It is our normal procedure to conduct the health assessment LV at the same time as the annual booster vaccinations. This is the ideal time for us to advise you of any actual or impending health problems.Dogs and cats become more prone to ill health as they get older, and we recommend that your elderly pet has a more regular check-up, as he gets older. A blood test to screen for underlying disease in the major organs of the body may be recommended as part of your pet's geriatric check-up.
