Cat and Dog Vaccinations, the facts
Vaccinations are the only effective way to protect your pet against life threatening and sadly often fatal disease.
We strongly believe in not over-vaccinating any animal and therefore have strict vaccination protocols in place to ensure your pet is fully protected and safe.
The WSAVA core vaccines are against:
Additional vaccinations we recommend
A blood test is available to check antibody titre levels against Distemper, Hepatitis and Parvovirus. We only use the gold standard laboratory test rather than the quicker and cheaper in house methods you may see advertised elsewhere as these are often very inaccurate.
Unfortunately here is no blood test available that will effectively tell you if your dog has effective immunity against Leptospirosis or Kennel Cough, so the only way to ensure they’re protected against these diseases is by vaccination.
The most common side effect following vaccinations is a mild and transient sting at the site of the injection. The risk of side effects following vaccinations are characterised as “rare” by regulatory authorities. The Veterinary Medicines Directorate said the incidence of adverse reactions to Nobivac L4 is 0.064 per cent. Or, in other words, for every 10,000 doses administered, the VMD has received reports of six reactions. We are constantly monitoring the scientific updates looking at risk of side effects versus benefits of vaccinations and the current advice is the benefit greatly exceeds the risks.
