Tips for puppy and kitten vaccination

What vaccines do kittens need?

Cats are vaccinated against viruses that cause severe flu-like symptoms, Feline Leukaemia Virus – a cancer-inducing disease of cats and against Panleukopaenia virus – a fatal gastroenteritis. In kittens the initial course of two vaccinations is typically administered at 8 and 11 weeks although you should consult with your vet as this may vary depending on the vaccine the practice uses.

What vaccines do puppies need?

Dogs are vaccinated against Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvo virus and Leptospirosis. A vaccine for Kennel Cough is recommended in high risk situations such as those experienced when taking your dog to kennels and shows. In puppies the initial course of two vaccinations is typically administered at 7 and 10 weeks of age but again can vary. Early vaccination in this way allows socialization under controlled low-risk situations from 9 weeks of age and means that puppies are ready to face the world at 12 weeks.
