Let us prevent your cat, dog or rabbit from catching a potentially fatal disease
When you get a young pet you’ll do anything to guarantee them a great start in life; you’ll make sure they have a warm bed and lots of toys; you’ll exercise them and keep them active; you’ll spend your spare time bonding with them. Did you know that the best possible start you can give your new addition is having them vaccinated?
As well as vaccinations, regular health checks are the most important thing you can offer your new pet. It is recommended that all kittens, puppies and young rabbits see a veterinary professional once a month until they are 6 months of age.
By taking your new pet to see a veterinary professional regularly you can rest assured that their health is being monitored closely. This is the best way to treat, and in some cases prevent nasty conditions from developing in later life.
When you bring your new pet to see us at Newnham Court Vets we will talk to you about the importance of vaccinations and how they will prevent your animal from developing certain diseases, which can be fatal in some cases.
Vaccinations generally consist of two injections administered between 2 and 4 weeks apart. Animals are protected against the diseases that are most likely to affect their species.
At Newnham Court Vets, puppies have their first vaccination at 8-9 weeks and their second at 12-13 weeks. They can be vaccinated against:
- Canine Distemper Virus
- Infectious Canine Hepatitis
- Canine Parvovirus
- Leptospira canicola and icterohaemorrhagie bacteria
- Canine Parainfluenza Virus (part of the kennel cough complex)
- Kennel Cough*
Kittens have their first vaccination at 9 weeks and their second at 12 weeks. They can be vaccinated against:
- Feline Enteritis
- Feline Herpes Virus and Feline Calicivirus (part of the ‘cat flu’ virus)
- Feline Leukaemia
Kits (baby rabbits) have their Myxomatosis and RHD vaccinations at 5-6 weeks.
