Dog care

Vaccinations are one of the most important things you can do for your dog.

6-8 weeks of age C3 Vaccine
12 weeks of age C5 Vaccine
16 weeks of age C5 Vaccine

Puppies can join ‘puppy preschool’ after their first vaccination at 6-8 weeks of age.
Puppies are free to socialize in public a week after their third vaccination.

Once the puppy course is completed, the first adult vaccination will be due at 18 months of age.

A reminder will be sent prior to your pets vaccination due date.

Annual Dog Vaccination

Canine Cough ( Parainfluenza & Bordatella)

Triennial Dog Vaccination

C3 Vaccine (Distemper, Hepatitis & Parvovirus)

Titre testing for vaccine immune response.

New research has revealed that many dogs are developing an immunity from the 16 week C3 vaccine that is lasting much longer than 3 years.

A blood test can be taken from your dog to determine if a three yearly vaccine is necessary or if your dog’s immunity levels are high enough to last another 3 years.

We recommend starting Titre testing at 6 months of age to check if your dog has responded to the course of puppy vaccinations, (a small percentage won’t), and then test every three years.

Your dog will still need the Canine Cough vaccination yearly as, like the our flu vaccinations, the immunity will only last for 12 months.
