It is very important that you vaccinate your four legged friend. This is best for their health and well being. Vaccinations protect your animal against harmful diseases and infection.
If you have any questions about vaccinating, please speak to your local vet.
Cats are generally vaccinated at 8 weeks, 12 weeks, 16 weeks and then once a year, to protect them from diseases such as feline enteritis, cat flu, feline chlamydia and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV), which can be very serious and even fatal, particularly for kittens.
Your cat should be vaccinated against the following infectious diseases:
• Feline Panleukopenia
• Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis
Puppies must receive their first vaccination between 6-8 weeks of age. This is then repeated monthly, or at 4 week intervals until your dog is at least 4 months old.
Booster vaccines are then maintained annually – your vet will be able to advise you of the exact timeframes for scheduled vaccinations for your pet.
Speak to your vet about ensuring your dog is vaccinated against the following:
• Canine Distemper
• Canine Infectious Hepatitis
• Canine Parvovirus
• Canine Parainfluenza
• Bordetella Bronchiseptica
