Vaccinations

Canine Vaccinations

Our clinic recommends a regime of 3 vaccinations as puppies and then annual vaccinations as adults.

  • C3 vaccine at 6-8 weeks of age
  • C5 vaccine at 12 weeks of age
  • C5 vaccine at 16 weeks of age

They then require a C5 vaccination every year for life. The C5 vaccination provides protection from canine parvovirus, canine distemper virus, canine hepatitis, and kennel cough (Bordetella Bronchiseptica and Parainfluenza). These viruses can cause a range of clinical signs including vomiting, diarrhoea, lethargy, depression, coughing and seizures to name a few. It is important to keep your dog up to date with their vaccinations to not only protect your own dog but other dogs as well.

Feline Vaccinations

Our clinic recommends a regime of 3 vaccinations as kittens and then annual vaccinations as adults.

F3 Only

  • Give F3 vaccine at 6-8 weeks of age
  • Give F3 vaccine at 12 weeks of age
  • Give F3 vaccine at 16 weeks of age
  • Give F3 vaccinations annually thereafter

F3 and FIV

  • Give F3 vaccination between 6 – 8 weeks of age
  • Give F3 & FIV vaccinations at 12 weeks of age
  • Give FIV vaccination at 14 weeks of age
  • Give F3 & FIV vaccinations at 16 weeks of age
  • Give F3 & FIV vaccinations annually thereafter

They then require a F3 vaccination every year for life. The F3 vaccination provides protection from feline panleucopaenia, feline calicivirus and feline rhinotracheitis (herpes virus). These viruses can cause stomach upsets with diarrhoea and vomiting, lethargy and depression. They also cause “cat flu”, i.e. sneezing, discharge from the eyes and nose and mouth ulcers. It is important to keep your cat up to date with their vaccinations to not only protect your own cat but other cats as well.
