In-house Laboratory Analysis
Core to the health and well being of your pet are neutering and regular vaccination. In 2004 we launched our discounted vaccination and neutering service and it has been a runaway success. Our aim was, and still is, to provide good, high quality preventative healthcare at prices affordable to all!
These days most people are aware of what vaccinations do. They prevent infection with serious or potentially fatal illnesses.
Vaccination in your puppy/dog can start as early as eight weeks of age. It is a two-stage process. At the first vaccination consultation the veterinarian you are seeing will carry out a full and thorough examination of your puppy/dog and give the first part of the course. The second part of the course must be given between 14 and 28 days later. Your puppy/dog will be fully protected 10 days after the SECOND part of the vaccination course.
The vaccination course for dogs is for canine parvovirus; canine distempervirus; canine parainfluenzavirus; canine infectious hepatitis and leptospirosis.
Also these days most reputable kennels require your dog to be vaccinated against kennel cough (Bordetella bronchiseptica).
Vaccination in your kitten/cat can start as early as nine weeks of age. It is a two-stage process. At the first vaccination consultation the veterinarian you are seeing will carry out a full and thorough examination of your kitten/cat and give the first part of the course. The second part of the course must be given between 21 and 28 days later. Your kitten/cat will be fully protected 10 days after the SECOND part of the vaccination course.
The vaccination course for cats is for feline rhinotracheitis and calici viruses ('cat flu'), feline panleucopenia virus ('enteritis) and feline leukaemia virus.
In BOTH cats and dogs annual booster vaccinations are needed.
We are also able to give rabies vaccinations to your dog or cat, which is needed for obtaining a 'Pet Passport.'
Rabbits need vaccination against myxomatosis (this can be started at 6weeks of age) and viral haemorhagic disease(this can be given from 10 weeks of age). These can be started at six weeks of age and need to be given at least two weeks apart. Six monthly boosters are necessary for myxomatosis and annual booster vaccinations are needed for viral haemorhagic desease.
*Please note that vaccinations cannot be given if your pet has any illness and any illnesses found during the examination will need to be treated prior to vaccination occurring.
