Your pet relies on you to protect them – don’t forget about their essential vaccinations
Just as you have routine vaccinations during childhood, and then later in life, so too does your pet need protection from the most serious diseases that they are susceptible to.
After their initial set of vaccines, they will also require booster injections to ensure their immunity is kept at a high enough level to protect them. Don’t worry about having to remember to book their next appointment – we will send you a reminder when their next vaccinations are due.
We believe we should only vaccinate pets against diseases appropriate to their lifestyle, and only as often as truly needed. We will discuss your individual pets needs with you, to ensure we tailor a vaccination program that’s just right for your pet.
Puppies normally receive their first vaccinations at around eight weeks old, and a second set two to four weeks later, with a final vaccination given at 14-16 weeks of age. It is recommended that you don’t allow your puppy outside in public spaces until 10 days after their second vaccination. Additionally, you will probably find that organisations like dog kennels, boarders and training classes will not allow your puppy to join until they have had at least their first or second set of vaccinations.
Puppies normally receive protection against the following diseases:
Kittens should first be vaccinated between eight and ten weeks of age, and again two to four weeks later.
They may be vaccinated against:
- Feline influenza
- Feline enteritis
- Feline leukaemia
- Feline Immunodeficiency Virus
Kits (baby rabbits) should receive their first injection at six weeks old, and the second one between two and four weeks later.
They need protection against Viral haemorrhagic disease (VHD), which is normally fatal. Vaccination against Myxomatosis is illegal in Australia, so we are currently unable to provide vaccinations against this virus.
