Vaccination and worming
Puppies and kittens are immunised by a course of two injections from the age of eight weeks for puppies and 9 weeks for kittens. Prior to their vaccinations, and two weeks after, they should not be exposed to infections present in public places, streets, parks etc.
- We advise that dogs are vaccinated against Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, Parvovirus and Kennel Cough.
- We advise that cats are vaccinated against Infectious Enteritis, Cat Flu and Leukaemia.
- Annual re-vaccination (booster) with a single injection is essential for the maintenance of immunity.
We are pleased to supply our recommended wormers for your pet at competitive prices.
- Dogs. Puppies should be wormed from three weeks - every two weeks until twelve weeks old - then every four weeks until six months old for roundworm. After six months of age dogs should be wormed 2-4 times a year, depending on the degree of risk, with a broad spectrum wormer.
- Cats. Kittens and adult cats should be wormed at the intervals as suggested above for puppies and dogs.
- If your animal keeps getting tapeworm they should be checked for fleas which act as an intermediate host for tapeworm.
