Puppy and Dog Vaccinations 

This practice supports routine vaccinations of dogs and puppies.

At the time of vaccination the veterinary surgeon will carry out a thorough health check which we believe is essential to the animals well-being as it allows us to detect early signs of any problems.

At the time of initial vaccinations the veterinary surgeons will also give advice about the care of your new pet. The vaccination fees include a consultation fee which covers this health check.

Puppies and dogs are routinely vaccinated against distemper, leptospirosis, canine hepatitis and parvovirus.

Kennel cough vaccinations

This is not routinely given but will have to be used when dogs are going into boarding kennels or if they are in close contact with other dogs eg. training classes, shows.

Kennel cough vaccination only offers a 6 month protection. Kennel cough vaccination may be given at the same time as the main vaccination.

Many of the UK's population of dogs may not be adequately protected.


Vaccination is the only proven method of protecting dogs against the major infectious diseases.


Parvovirus, distemper, hepatitis and leptospirosis are still present in the UK. These diseases can be fatal.


Some canine diseases are zoonotic, which means they can be easily transmitted from dogs to humans.

Ask yourself the following:

  1. Does my dog play with other dogs and sniff the ground where another dog has been?
  2. Do I let my dog lick or eat something that has been left on the ground?
  3. Do I clean up after my dog or leave the mess for another animal to sniff?
  4. Do my children play with my dog and do I let it lick their faces?
  5. Do my children wash their hands when they have finished playing with the dog?
  6. Do I wash my hands after playing with or stroking my dog?
  7. Do I feed my dog from the same plate that I eat from?
  8. Are my dog's boosters up-to-date?

Your pet is at risk of exposure to disease just by going outside or coming into contact with other dogs.

If any of these questions apply to your dog then your family's health could be at risk. If you pet's boosters are overdue please book an appointment to see your veterinary surgeon.
