We recommend the C5 pet vaccination for dogs. This vaccination contains the antigens against Parvovirus, Distemper virus, Canine Hepatitis virus, Parainfluenza virus and Bordetella bacteria. We recommend the F4 pet vaccination for cats. This vaccination contains the antigens against Feline Enteritis (Parvo), Calicivirus, Feline Rhinotracheitis and Chlamydia. All pet vaccinations include a written report from the veterinarian. For vaccination litter prices contact us.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to vaccinate my dog?
There is no law that says you must vaccinate your dog (or cat). But it is highly recommended that you do vaccinate. There are some very serious diseases such as Parvo, Distemper, Canine Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, Bordetella, Leptospirosis and other diseases that we can prevent by using a yearly vaccination. It is our recommendation that all dogs and cats are vaccinated against serious diseases every year for the life of the animal. You can only put your dog in a boarding kennel if it has been vaccinated with C5 in the last 12 months. Read more about vaccination
What is Parvo and how serious is it?
What diseases do I need to vaccinate my cat for?
There are a number of diseases we recommend cats are vaccinated against. We use and recommend a F4 and that vaccinates the cat against Feline Enteritis (now called Feline Parvo), Feline Herpes and Feline Calicivirus (often called Cat Flu) and Chlamydia (an eye and upper respiratory problem). We recommend all cats are vaccinated once a year.
What age do I need to vaccinate my dog or cat?
How long does a vaccination last for?
Once the animal has its puppy or kitten vaccination program finished then the vaccine should give good protection for one year. We recommend yearly vaccinations.
Some vets use vaccines that work for 3 years. Do you do this and if not, why not?
How long after my animal gets vaccinated does the vaccine take to work properly?
A vaccination usually takes 10 days to have full effect. In that period we do not recommend the animal comes into close contact with any sick or suspect ill animal. Once the animal has been vaccinated properly as a kitten or a pup then the animal will have some level of immunity against the diseases it has been vaccinated against. The yearly boosters are there to just “boost” that level on immunity.
After my animal was vaccinated it got sick – is this normal?
Some animals, especially small dogs and cats, will often have a reaction to the vaccination. This reaction can vary from feeling sore where the vet put the needle in, to the animal feeling sick for a day or so. We find most cats will often not want to be touched and will not eat properly for one to two days after a vaccination. This reaction is usually associated with an immune response to the vaccine (often called an allergic reaction). The dog or cat may increase its temperature and just want to be left alone. We recommend you leave them alone during this period and respect the fact that they need their own space.
