Puppy

Vaccination

Protects against canine hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvovirus, distemper virus and kennel cough (Bordatella Bronchiseptica)

  • 1st vaccination at 8 weeks of age
  • 2nd vaccination at 10 weeks of age
  • 3rd vaccination for kennel cough at 12 weeks age
  • Then a booster yearly (one year from the 2nd vaccination).

It is fine to let puppies into your private garden, although we advise to clean up fox faecal matter beforehand. Your puppy can be let out to interact with other dogs one week after the 2nd vaccination.

Go Green! Please leave an email address and/or mobile telephone number for vaccination reminders.

Flea treatment/worm treatment

Monthly spot on application of Prinovox

Due to the high incidence of lungworm (a life threatening parasitic disease) in the southeast UK, we advise all dogs to use the monthly spot on application of Prinovox.

Prinovox is one of only a few anti-parasitic medications that protects against lungworm.

It should be used monthly to protect against fleas, flea larvae, roundworms, lungworm and mites (mange), and is safe from 8 weeks of age.

Tapeworm

Milpro tablet

Milpro is a treatment for worms. Tapeworms can be transmitted by fleas, foxes and rodents. We advise tapeworm treatment with Milpro once every 3 months from 8 weeks of age.

Spay/Neuter

If you are not planning to breed your pet we strongly advise to spay/neuter your pet before 18 months of age. It has been shown that spaying a bitch before her 2nd season greatly reduces the risk of mammary cancer. Spaying a bitch prevents hormonal uterine infections (Pyometra). Castrating males can help curb aggression and reduces the risk of prostate problems in an older male dog.

We offer laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery for bitch spays as a less invasive alternative to conventional surgery.

Microchipping

Recommended at the time of 2nd vaccination or at time of spay/neuter (whilst they are asleep!). Microchipping is now a legal requirement for dog ownership.

Insurance

We advise pet insurance for all pets. When choosing a plan we advise a life cover policy. A life cover policy will cover your pet for the whole term of an ongoing medical condition, whereas a limited policy will only provide cover for one year from the time of the initial diagnosis of the condition.

Some recommended insurance companies – Agria, Pet Plan, Direct Line, Argos, Tescos and others.
