There are a number of serious canine diseases that can be fatal even with treatment. It is possible to give your dog protection against these diseases by having a planned vaccination schedule.

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.

 

 

Vaccine types

C3 vaccine
Protects against parvovirusdistemper and hepatitis. This needs to be boosted every 3 years, but we strongly recommend still getting an annual health check, especially for our older pets.

CC vaccine
Protects against the components of canine cough. This needs to be boosted every 12 months.

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.
