Recommended Vaccinations for Dogs, Cats & Rabbits

The core vaccinations for pets will protect them against a variety of diseases.

 For dogs, they will include:

  • Distemper vaccination: This contagious paramyxovirus (like measles) causes fever, a weakened immune system, and various symptoms like eye/nose discharge, digestive/respiratory problems, and paw pad thickening. Distemper can be fatal.
  • Hepatitis vaccination: This acute liver infection spreads through canine adenovirus. Symptoms include jaundice, abdominal pain, and loss of appetite. Eye problems and bleeding may also occur. Some dogs recover with lingering issues.
  • Parvovirus vaccination: Highly infectious, this virus spreads through contact with infected dogs or their faeces. It causes severe bloody diarrhoea and even heart failure and is often fatal.
  • Para Influenza vaccination: This virus contributes to kennel cough, a contagious illness spread through coughing and sneezing. While rarely fatal, it causes a nasty cough lasting up to three weeks.
  • Leptospirosis vaccination: This bacterial disease spreads through contact with infected animal urine (rats, mice). It causes fever, and vomiting, and can lead to liver and kidney failure. Leptospirosis is zoonotic (transmissible to humans), making vaccination essential.

For cats, the core vaccinations are:

  • Panleukopenia vaccination: This highly contagious virus (feline parvovirus) spreads through contact or bodily fluids. Severe diarrhoea and a weakened immune system leave cats vulnerable.
  • Rhinotracheitis vaccination: Also known as "Cat flu", this is a contagious herpes virus. The symptoms include pink eye, sneezing, fever, and sometimes pneumonia. Some cats become lifelong carriers, so vaccination helps prevent outbreaks.
  • Calicivirus vaccination: Widespread, this virus may not always cause illness. But when it does, watch for conjunctivitis, runny nose, and mouth ulcers.
  • Rabies vaccination: This deadly viral disease affects all mammals, including cats. Vaccination is essential as there's no cure.
  • Feline Leukaemia Virus (FeLV) vaccination: Spread through close contact, FeLV can weaken a cat's immune system. Symptoms vary, but vaccination helps safeguard your feline friend.

For rabbits, the essential vaccinations include:

  • Myxomatosis vaccine: This highly contagious viral disease spreads through insects or contact with infected rabbits. Symptoms include swelling around the eyes and genitals, difficulty breathing, and weight loss. Myxomatosis can be fatal.
  • Viral Haemorrhagic Diarrhoea (VHD) vaccine: This fast-acting viral illness spreads through contact or contaminated surfaces. Rabbits may show no signs or experience sudden death, internal bleeding, and lethargy. VHD is often fatal.

Why Pet Vaccinations Matter

Vaccines, including routine pet vaccinations and others, play a crucial role in bolstering your pet's immune system against various diseases. By safeguarding your pet, vaccines also contribute to preventing the transmission of diseases, then safeguarding the wider community.

Among these diseases are some that can be life-threatening, highlighting the importance of protecting your beloved companion. Keeping your pet's vaccinations current with booster shots is also essential to ensure ongoing protection. This not only maintains your pet's health but also grants you peace of mind, particularly during outdoor activities. 

Benefits of Vaccinating Your Pet

As well as helping your pet to build strength against several diseases and reduce the risk of severe illness, pet vaccines can:

  • Reduce pet health care costs: As pet vaccines can prevent a variety of diseases and reduce the risk of severe illness, it will also mean that you may save money in the long run. This is because the cost of vaccines is significantly lower than the cost of treatments for many of these diseases and their diagnosis.
  • Promoting peace of mind: As mentioned above, by having your pet vaccinated, you may also have peace of mind by knowing your pet will be safe and with a good immune system against a variety of diseases.
  • Protecting other animals: Pet vaccines will prevent your pet from falling ill from a disease, preventing also from spreading the virus. This can help both your local community and wildlife.
