Your pets should be vaccinated annually to protect them from many highly contagious and infectious diseases. The best form of protection is having your pet fully vaccinated.
It’s particularly important to make sure new puppies and kittens are fully vaccinated, as they’re immune systems are still developing.
Vaccinations that are required:
- 6 to 8 weeks of age
- 12 weeks of age
- 16 weeks of age
- then annually for the rest of their life
There are a number of diseases that you can safely and effectively protect your pet from through vaccination.
Canine vaccinations protect against (C5):
- Infectious canine hepatitis
- Canine cough – including Parainfluenza virus and Bordetella bacteria
Feline vaccinations protect against (F3):
- Cat flu – Rhinotracheitis and Calicivirus
Feline Aids Virus (FIV) – causes a suppression of the immune system and is contracted by fighting and biting with infected cats. The vaccinations for FIV are administered over a course of 3 injections.
Rabbit vaccinations protect against:
Calicivirus has been used in areas to remove wild rabbits so having your pet rabbits vaccinated is important!
It’s important to note that your pet must be up to date with their vaccinations for boarding.
