Keep your dog healthy and protected from harmful diseases
Diseases you need to vaccinate against
Parvovirus: Causes severe diarrhoea that requires prolonged intensive care for treatment. Can be fatal.
Distemper: Causes eye and nasal discharge, coughing, vomiting and diarrhoea, progressing to brain involvement causing seizures. Normally fatal.
Hepatitis: Causes vomiting, diarrhoea, abdominal pain and liver failure. Often fatal.
Canine cough (CC): Also known as kennel cough. Canine cough is spread by close contact and airborne transmission. The components that can be vaccinated against are:
- Parainfluenza and adenovirus: A viral disease causing a nasty cough.
- Bordetella bronchiseptica: Bacteria causing a harsh, dry cough and lethargy.
C3 vaccine: Protects against parvovirus, distemper and hepatitis.
CC vaccine: Protects against the components of canine cough.
C5 vaccine: Is a combination of C3 + CC and is the minimum requirement for most boarding kennels. We strongly recommend a C5 vaccination for all dogs due to the frequency that we see dogs with canine cough in this area.
