Vaccination

Vaccination is possible against several diseases which are caused by apathogenic agent that penetrates the body. The body responds to the pathogenic agent, for example a virus, by producing antibodies.

When the veterinarian injects a vaccine, the body responds the same way without becoming really ill. When the body meets the same pathogenic agent again, it will have produced enough antibodies to fight the disease. The animal therefore has a smaller risk to become ill.

Deworming

Research has shown that the chance of infection in the Netherlands has increased over the past years, which is why animals need to be dewormed more often.

Therefore, our policy since 2011: deworming four times a year.

We do this by using the following slogan: 2x a year a pipette, 2x a year a tablet.

The pipette is active against a wide range of parasites, while the tablet is most active against tapeworms.

This way, parasites will become resistant less quickly against the agents.

Dog

6 weeks: puppy vaccination against canine distemper and parvo.
9 weeks: canine distemper, infectious canine hepatitis, leptospirosis, Para influenza
12 weeks: canine distemper, infectious canine hepatitis, leptospirosis, para influenza and kennel cough
The vaccination at 12 weeks is valid for one full year. After this year, the vaccination needs to be repeated on yearly basis.

Your pet needs to be vaccinated against rabies in case you want to take your dog, cat or ferret abroad (Some countries, including the United Kingdom, might have stricter regulations. Make sure you contact us on time to discuss this). Also a physical examination and a chip are required.

Canine Distemper:
Symptoms include diarrhoea, sneezing, fever, pneumonia and neurological disorder. This is in most cases lethal for the dog.

Infectious canine hepatitis
Often a disease that quickly leads to death. This disease is transferred via urine of infected dogs.

Parvo:
Occurs mainly at puppies. Symptoms are fever, vomiting and diarrhoea containing blood. The virus is transferred via faeces.

Leptospirosis
Malfunctioning of the liver and kidney, often with a lethal course. Leptospirosis is transferred via water, urine from rats and urine from dogs. Contagious for humans!

Kennel Cough
Combination of viruses (para influenza), bacterium (Bordetella) and other circumstances. Is often transferred when dogs are close together. The dog will start coughing a lot. 

Canine Herpes Virus:
Is transferred at birth, via nose and vaginal slime or via sperm. The most important symptom of the canine herpes virus is puppy mortality before (abortion) and just after birth. Furthermore, the virus can cause infertility at adult animals.

Rabies
Symptoms include neurological disorder. Is transferred via saliva (biting). Contagious and lethal for both human and animals.

Cat

9 weeks: feline panleukopenia, feline viral rhinotracheitis and Chlamydia
12 weeks: feline panleukopenia, feline viral rhinotracheitis, Chlamydia and Bordetella
The vaccination at 12 weeks is valid for one full year. After this year, the vaccination needs to be repeated on yearly basis.

Your pet needs to be vaccinated against rabies in case you want to take your dog, cat or ferret abroad (Some countries, including the United Kingdom, might have stricter regulations. Make sure you contact us on time to discuss this). Also a physical examination and a chip are required.

Feline panleukopenia:
Virus infection inside the gastro-intestinal tract of the cat, with diarrhoea (mixed with blood), fever, anaemia as symptoms. High chance of mortality. Virus is transferred via vomit and diarrhoea. Cats that don't go outside can still be contaminated, because the virus can stick to your shoes and enter your house.

Feline viral rhinotracheitis:
Is often caused by a mixture of infections (several pathogenic agents including Chlamydia and Bordetella). The animals can be contaminated via air or nasal fluids. Most common symptoms are sneezing, nasal discharge and inflamed eyes, but sometimes symptoms like fever or drooling are present.

Feline Herpes Virus:
This includes acute rhinitis and conjunctivitis. May lead to severe and lethal pneumonia, especially with kittens. 

Rabies :
Symptoms include neurological disorder. Is transferred via saliva (biting). Contagious and lethal for both human and animals.

Rabbit

A rabbit needs to be vaccinated twice a year against myxomatosis and RHD.
We have special days in April and August for the vaccination of your rabbit.
Rabbits can be vaccinated when they are older than 8 weeks.

Myxomatosis :
Myxomatosis is caused by a smallpox virus. The virus is mainly transferred via insects that sting like mosquitos, flees and flies. Contamination is also possible via direct contact with contaminated animals or contaminated materials. Symptoms include swelling of the eye lids, mouth and anus. Others symptoms are knobs in the skin (myxomes). After a few days, the rabbit will get pneumonia. This is lethal for the rabbit in most cases. 

Rabbit Haemorrhagic Disease:
RHD is caused by a virus. This virus spreads via direct contact between rabbits, but can also be transferred via manure, insects and contaminated material such as troughs. RHD causes internal bleedings which lead to mortality within 24 hours in most cases.

Beware! Freshly picked grass or dandelions can be contaminated if wild rabbits are present nearby.

Mocht u naar het buitenland gaan met uw hond, kat of fret moet het dier minimaal 30 dagen voor de reis geënt worden tegen hondsdolheid (in o.a. Engeland zijn de regels strenger. Neemt u ruim op tijd contact met ons op om dit door te nemen). Ook is een gezondheidsonderzoek en een chip vereist.

Ferret

9 weeks: vaccination against canine distemper
12 weeks: vaccination against canine distemper
The vaccination at 12 weeks is valid for one full year. After this year, the vaccination needs to be repeated on yearly basis.

Your pet needs to be vaccinated against rabies in case you want to take your dog, cat or ferret abroad (Some countries, including the United Kingdom, might have stricter regulations. Make sure you contact us on time to discuss this). Also a physical examination and a chip are required.
