Vaccinating your new pets!

Puppies are vaccinated against distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus and leptospirosis. Most puppies start their vaccinations at 8 weeks old, having three injections two weeks apart. They are allowed to start socialising one week after their second injection. We also recommend giving puppies a Kennel cough vaccination, this vaccine is given up their nose at their booster injection.
 
Kittens are vaccinated against feline leukaemia virus, feline herpes virus, calici virus and infectious enteritis. This is a full vaccination given 3 weeks apart at 9 and 12 weeks old. We recommend your kittens shouldn't be let outside until neutered at approximately 6 months old especially for females to avoid unwanted pregnancies.

After they have vaccinations as puppies or kittens your pets would need to have  booster vaccinations a year from their previous injection, this keeps them up to date with any new strains of the disease and protected against them.

Has your pet been over indulging over Christmas and New Year?
Here are a few tips on how to keep your pets weight down:
  1. Be observant – keep an eye on what they are actually eating throughout the day, getting snacks or treats from other family members or finding them lying around. Each little treat/snack on top of their usual food can make them gain weight slowly over a short period of time.
     
  2. Get them moving – It may be cold but your pet still needs exercise whether it’s playing in the garden or longer walks up the hills or even to the beach, it can be good for both of you!
     
  3. Counting the calories – If your pet is receiving its full daily amount of food alongside treats, snacks and goodies, it amounts to more than their needed daily calories. We recommend you use their usual dog food kibble as treats (taken out of their daily amount), or reduce the total amount at meal times depending on the number of treats each day.
     
  4. Measure their portions – Don’t just guess! You might be over or under feeding; every food bag will have the recommended daily feeding amount for your size of animal, only feed to the weight they SHOULD be. Once weighed out you could measure it in a cup and use tape as a guideline.
     
  5. Attention doesn’t mean feeding! – If your pet comes up to you begging, the majority of the time they just want attention and love, giving them a tickle and playing with them. If they have already eaten they do not need any more food!
