Protect your pets by keeping their vaccinations up to date. If your pets are not vaccinated they are at risk from infectious diseases, some of which can be transmitted to humans.

Puppies and kittens are initially protected from infections by the antibodies they receive through their mother’s milk, providing she has been regularly vaccinated. This protection will only last a few weeks, so to create their own immunity puppies and kittens need to be vaccinated shortly after weaning.

Puppies are vaccinated from eight weeks of age, with the second vaccine given when they are at least 10 weeks old. There is a 2-4 week gap between the two vaccinations.

Kittens are vaccinated from nine weeks of age, with a similar course of two injections. There is a 3 week gap for kittens.

Both dogs and cats should then receive a booster vaccination every 12 months. The first of these annual vaccines is particularly important as it is part of the primary vaccination.
