Vaccinations

Cats, Dogs, Ferrets and Rabbits all benefit from the protection of Vaccination.

All our vaccinations have a high degree of safety and have undergone rigorous testing by the vaccine company.
In addition, Vaccination confers a good high level of immunity enabling your animal to fight off otherwise serious and life-threatening infection.

Rabies

If you are taking your animal abroad then you will need to have him or her to have Rabies Vaccination. Our Vets are Local Veterinary Inspectors (LVIs) for the Ministry (DEFRA) and so can give the Rabies Vaccination. It is a requirement that your pet will need a Microchip prior to having the Vaccination. We also recommend that you have a blood test to prove that the Vaccination has induced good Immunity.

N.B. Be aware that Rabies is not the only contagious disease to be aware of when taking your pet to the continent. There are several dangerous diseases spread by Ticks and Sandflies.

Come and discuss all these matters with us, so that you can have a trouble free journey.
