Important Changes to Dog Vaccinations 

In order to maximise protection against various illnesses and diseases, the annual vaccinations we are now giving to your dog have changed. Part of the vaccine protects against the bacterial disease called Leptospirosis (commonly known as Weil’s disease when humans catch it) which can cause liver and kidney disease and if left untreated can be fatal.

Like all bacteria, Leptospirosis is constantly changing and new strains are emerging. Therefore the new vaccine has been developed in order to stay one step ahead of the bacteria. When you bring your dog in for examination and booster injections we shall use this new vaccine.

However, to provide maximum immunity and protection we need to give a second injection four weeks later. Once your dog has had this "top up" course they will only need the usual single booster injection in subsequent years. If you are bringing your puppy in to start their vaccinations, they only need to have two injections; one month apart and the first can be given from six weeks of age.

The new vaccine can still be used together with the kennel cough vaccine. By using the new vaccine and kennel cough vaccine together, we are able to provide your dog with the most up to date, comprehensive and safest vaccines available in order to protect them and to give you peace of mind.

If you have any questions regarding the new vaccine then please don’t hesitate to contact the surgery and speak to one of our team.
