Pet Vaccinations

Looking for ‘Pet Vaccinations Near Me’?

Vaccinations help protect your pets from a range of preventable illnesses and diseases. At Rackheath Vets, we recommend vaccinating dogs, cats, and rabbits as a routine part of preventive healthcare.

Vaccination schedules for pets can differ, depending on factors such as age, health, lifestyle, and environmental risk. Our experienced veterinarians will advise you on the frequency, types, and timing of vaccines and create a customized vaccination plan for your pet.

Regular vaccination for pets is important as it ensures their immunity to certain illnesses is maintained. It also protects the broader population of animals by helping to keep contagious diseases under control.

Dog Vaccinations

Dogs should be routinely vaccinated against the following four diseases:

  • • Canine parvovirus

  • • Canine distemper virus

  • • Leptospirosis

  • • Infectious canine hepatitis

Each one of the above diseases can be fatal, and each one has different symptoms and diagnosis methods.

One of the most essential components of ensuring your pet lives a long, active, and healthy life is through preventative health measures. While proper diet and exercise are key, vaccinations remain an invaluable part of your pet’s health regime.


Cat Vaccinations

Cats should be routinely vaccinated against the following three diseases:

  • • Cat flu (feline herpes virus and feline calicivirus)

  • • Feline infectious enteritis

  • • Feline leukaemia virus

Each of these diseases has its own set of symptoms and may range from mild to fatal. So, it is important that you observe your cat’s behaviour, health, and overall wellness and bring them in for their annual vaccinations with our veterinarian team.

At Rackheath Vets, we believe that proper healthcare is the key to ensuring that your pets are always healthy and happy. We will work with you to develop a vaccination schedule that helps keep your feline companion healthy.

Rabbit Vaccinations

While it’s not the law to vaccinate pet rabbits, we strongly suggest you do that. Vaccinating your rabbit is the best way to protect them against sometimes fatal diseases.

Annual checkups and vaccinations are essential in detecting and preventing common ailments in rabbits. Our experienced team of veterinarians at Rackheath Vets offer vaccinations that protect against the following three diseases:

  • • Myxomatosis

  • • Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease Strain 1 (RHD1)

  • • Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease Strain 2 (RHD2)

By scheduling your rabbits’ vaccinations with our vets, you can guarantee that they remain healthy and happy for years to come.

Puppy and Kitten Vaccinations

Your new puppy or kitten will require protection from the most common risks facing them when they are young. To ensure this, you will have to get them vaccinated.

Puppies should ideally get vaccinated at the age of eight and ten weeks, with the second dose given two to four weeks later. Your puppy will then require a booster vaccination at 6 or 12 months and then annually afterwards.

Kittens will need two sets of vaccinations to get them started. The first should be at nine weeks old, and the second booster set at three months old. After this, kittens and cats usually need booster vaccinations once a year.

Just to let you know, until your kitten is fully vaccinated (and neutered), you should keep them inside for their safety so as not to transmit any illnesses.
