If you are looking for vet examinations or animal vaccines, we are one of the leading vets in Rochester and Strood as well as the surrounding areas. You will not be disappointed with your choice. Please see below for a list of services that we offer:
Kittens: We vaccinate kittens from nine weeks of age. This is really important to prevent some dangerous diseases including: Cat Flu, Cat Enteritis, Feline Leukaemia, and Feline Chlamydia. The choice of vaccination protocol is something you will be able to discuss with your vet to find out what suits your cat best including your cats indoor versus outdoor lifestyle.
Puppies: They are vaccinated from eight weeks of age against the most dangerous diseases for dogs. This is includes: Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis (equivalent of Weil's disease), Gastroenteritis, and Para Influenza. You may also wish to vaccinate your dog against Kennel Cough, which despite the name it can be contracted anywhere, it is normally administered up the nose and is a very effective vaccine. Rabies vaccinations are generally required if you want to take your cat or dog abroad.
Rabbits: They are vaccinated against myxomatosis which is transmitted by mosquitoes and is very common here is Kent because of the marshes. It causes swelling of the face, ears and genitals. Pets that contract this particular disease are generally euthanized on humane grounds. We can also protect them against viral haemorrhagic disease which causes internal bleeding and death. Both injections need to be repeated year after year. The Myxomatosis at present is twice a year.
Yearly boosters are needed for cats, dogs, rabbits and ferrets.
We are able to offer an excellent range of other services and treatments and we tend to all sorts of animals, so why not give us a call today to discuss your needs? Our dedicated staff are always more than willing to assist. We look forward to hearing from you.
