Pet Vaccinations

Vaccinating your pet is a key step in protecting your pet against life threatening diseases.

The cost of disease prevention is much lower than the cost of treatment.

The diseases vaccinations aim to protect your pet against are still seen and thus still pose a constant danger to any unvaccinated animal.

We routinely vaccinate dogs, cats and rabbits against common viruses. Find out more about vaccinating your:

  • Dog Vaccinations
    Puppies get protection initially in life from their mother’s milk and then as they are weaned this protection wanes and thus vaccinations are required to maintain it. Typically we vaccinate puppies at 8 and 10 weeks old (though can be from as young as 7 weeks old) and then annual boosters afterwards. The primary puppy course acts to stimulate the body’s immune system to produce a protective response then the yearly booster afterwards maintains this immunity.

  • Cat Vaccinations
    Vaccinating your cat is very important for their health and for the control of infectious disease, not only for your cat but for the cat population as a whole. The greater the proportion of the population that is vaccinated the lower the risk for your cat, even when they themselves are vaccinated. Side effects of vaccination are rare and the benefits outweigh any risks involved.

    We recommend the vaccination of your cat throughout their life. Current evidence suggests that they are equally at risk of cat flu and enteritis, whatever their age. Even cats that never go outside can contract infectious diseases.

  • Rabbit Vaccinations
    Rabbit vaccination is available against two fatal diseases – Myxomatosis and Viral Haemorrhagic Disease. These are mainly transmitted from wild rabbits although insects can carry both diseases, so even house rabbits are still at risk. We strongly recommend that all pet rabbits be vaccinated on an annual basis with the combined vaccination for Myxomatosis and Viral Haemorrhagic Disease.

    Booster vaccination after an initial course is vital for all rabbits. Remember Scarsdale Vets always combines vaccinations with a full health assessment.
