Dogs and Puppies:

In the UK the most common vaccinations are parvovirus, distemper, infectious hepatitis, parainflueza, leptosporosis.
All of these can be severely debilitating to your dog and in some cases fatal.
Here at McGettigans we vaccinate against all of the above.

Puppies and restarts:
We advise that puppies are at least 8 weeks old and have been living with you for at least a week when first vaccinated. This enables the new puppy or dog to get used to their new home environment and food before they are vaccinated.
These dogs will need an initial course of two injections two weeks apart.

Boosters:
These need to be administered every 12 months. If they lapse more than 3 months then the dog will need the inital couse again to maintain their full immunity.

Cats and Kittens:

In the UK the most common vaccinations are feline leukaemia, panleukopenia, calicivirus and herpes virus.
All of these can be severely debilitating to your cat and in some cases fatal.
Here at McGettigans we vaccinate against all of the above.

Kittens and restarts:
