Boost and Protect -Vaccinations Initiative

We send out reminders when boosters are due, but we appreciate that they can arrive at busy times, or while you're on holiday, or when there are other pressures.

If for whatever reason, your pet's last booster is now overdue, your pet may need a new course of two doses of vaccine to ensure cover.

Vaccines offer protection for a range of preventable infectious diseases including parvovirus, distemper, hepatitis and leptospirosis for dogs and cat flu, feline panleucopenia and feline leukaemia virus for cats - all serious diseases which prove life threatening or result in long-term health problems.

You may remember that when your pet was young it was vaccinated twice, with an interval of 2-4 weeks between injections. These two injections were required to ensure a full immune response to all parts of the vaccine. After this, a single dose given at regular recommended booster intervals is usually sufficient to keep your pet protected. However, if the interval becomes significantly overdue a second dose of the vaccine may be recommended to ensure the best chance of maintaining cover against these diseases.

At the time of vaccination we give your pet a full health assessment and ensure there are no signs of any other illness or disease risk. Remember on average pets age faster than us humans, making this chance for an annual health assessment so much more important to ensure that our pets continue to live as happy and healthy a life as we can hope for.


Because we believe in the importance of keeping our pets protected from preventable disease we are offering with our 'Boost and Protect' initiative the option to have a full primary course for the cost of a booster vaccination during the month of December
