Vaccinations

We know that regular, accessible preventative health care can make a real difference to keeping your pet healthy and happy. That’s why we offer a full range of cat, dog and rabbit vaccinations.

We believe annual cat vaccinations and dog vaccinations, along with a vet check-up from our Coalville vets practice are an essential part of keeping your furry friend healthy for life: head to toe and nose to tail. As a client, you’re as important to us as the companions we care for: have your pet vaccinated with us every 12 months and we guarantee you on-going access to our emergency service at a discounted rate.

Rabbit Vaccination

There are two fatal diseases affecting rabbits for against which you must have your doe or buck vaccinated. Likely you’ll have heard of myxomatosis – but there’s also rabbit viral haemorrhagic disease (VHD). Both are transmitted by insects like rabbit fleas or midges, other infected rabbits and can be carried on clothing or footwear.

Myxomatosis: causes painful swelling of the eyes, ears and genitals while suppressing the immune system. There’s no known cure.

Rabbit VHD: caused by the insect-borne calicivirus, symptoms include depression, anorexia, lethargy leading to breathing difficulties, difficulties clotting, nasal bleeding, convulsions, coma and then death.

While they are awful conditions, don’t be alarmed. A simple annual rabbit vaccination removes the risk and protects your pet.

 

Vaccinating rabbits; our Top Tips

  • We’ll vaccinate your rabbit each year for both diseases using a combined vaccine ahead of the summer months when fleas, midges and mosquitoes are most active.
  • We can give the first rabbit vaccination at just five weeks of age when it’s still a kit (youngster).
  • Pregnant does or breeding bucks require a different vaccination routine for both diseases so please speak to your vet.
  • If you also have cats they must to be treated for fleas to prevent any cross-infection.
