Dogs should be vaccinated from a young age to protect against the most serious and potentially fatal infectious diseases.
A healthy dog is a happy dog, so it’s important to get your dog registered with a local vet like Blythwood Vets for initial check-ups, vaccinations and ongoing healthcare. Whether you have a Chihuahua, or a Great Dane, vaccinating your dog is very effective in reducing the incidence of many life-threatening infectious diseases.
Puppy vaccinations usually start at eight weeks of age and protect against Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus (DHP) and Leptospirosis. A vaccination does not last for a pet's life and top-ups are required to maintain protection – these are dog vaccination boosters.
Other dog vaccinations:
A Rabies vaccination is required if you wish to leave the UK with your pet.
Kennel cough (infectious tracheobronchitis) is a respiratory infection in dogs which can be caught anywhere dogs congregate – it’s especially common in in kennels. A vaccination for Kennel Cough can be given from 3 weeks of age. It will decrease the chance of your dog contracting kennel cough and reduce the severity if they do.

How much will my pet’s treatment cost?
The treatment cost for your pet can vary depending on the service provided. You can request an estimate before any treatment is provided to your pet.
Will my pet insurance cover the costs of treatment?
Having a good pet insurance policy allows you to concentrate on what’s best for your pet while knowing help is there for the cost of unexpected treatment should they become ill or are injured. The type of policy you choose can have implications for the costs you will face so it’s important to choose the right cover.
The four main types of policy are as follows:
- Accident: provides cover for accidents only and no cover for illness
- Time-Limited: provides cover for a set amount of time (usually 12 months) and after this period the condition is excluded
- Maximum Benefit: provides cover up to a maximum amount of money per condition and once this limit is reached the condition is excluded
- Lifetime: provides a set amount of money each year which is refreshed each time you renew your policy allowing you to continue to claim for ongoing conditions
