Vaccinating Your Dog

Vaccination protects dogs against Disemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus and Leptospirosis, whilst a separate Kennel Cough vaccine is also available.

With our latest Leptospirosis vaccine (L4), your dog can start their vaccination course at 8 weeks of age, followed by the second vaccine at 12 weeks.  This vaccine gives extra protection against newly discovered forms of the disease.  Please ask Reception for more information.


If your puppy has already received a first injection from a different practice, please bring your pet’s vaccination certificate with you. We can then make the best decision for further vaccinations.

Booster vaccinations are required if you wish your dog to continue to be protected.  It means that your pet will have a full annual check up and any health issues can be discussed with the vet.



It is your responsibility to know when your dog’s booster is next due, but we can help. You can request annual reminders to be sent to you by either post or email.  We are happy to set these up for you.

If you wish to travel with your pet, please contact us regarding advice about Rabies, Herpes for pre-breeding bitches and Leishmaniasis.

Health Checks

Prior to vaccination, your dog will receive a full health check and you have the opportunity to discuss any concerns you have with the vet. We will examine the dog’s ears, eyes, teeth and nails, as well as checking their heart, lungs, mobility, weight and advise on worm and flea treatment. This is a really good time to discuss any questions or concerns you may have about your pet.
