Health Check

Make sure your new pet is given the best start in life

healthcheckAt Towerwood Vets we always recommend that pets are vaccinated whilst they are still young. We strongly believe that we want their immune systems to be as strong as possible keeping pets healthy as they grow.

For our canine pals

Your puppy can have their first vaccination around 9-10 weeks old and their second vaccination will follow 3 weeks later. They are then protected against the following diseases:

  • Canine Distemper Virus
  • Canine Parvovirus
  • Leptospirosis
  • Infectious Canine Hepatitis
  • Canine Parainfluenza Virus

We can also vaccinate your puppy against infectious bronchitis the canine equivalent to whooping cough (also known as kennel cough). This is a nasal vaccination rather than an injection so it is administered as drops in the nose.

If you plan on taking your dog or puppy to a kennel in the future, or somewhere a large amount of dogs may congregate in close proximity (eg: on the park, at a show), we would recommend that your pet is vaccinated against infectious bronchitis also.

For our feline friends

kitten can be vaccinated from around 9 weeks of age with their second vaccination 3 weeks later. This will provide protection for the following diseases:

  • Infectious enteritis
  • Cat Flu viruses
  • Feline Leukaemia Virus

For our bouncing bunnies

Kits (baby rabbits) are vaccinated again Myxomatosis and Viral Haemorrhagic Disease (VHD). We use a single vaccination given on one occasion to your rabbit from12 weeks and this is then repeated annually.

We always recommend vaccinating your pet rabbit to protect them; especially if you live in an area with a high population of wild rabbits or you use untreated straw or hay in their hutches.
