Vaccinations

  • Dog
  • Communication
  • Infection prevention
  • Infectious disease

Vaccinations are an important contribution to the containment and even eradication of sometimes life-threatening diseases. Vaccination of an individual animal serves to protect against infection and at the same time vaccination also reduces the potential for infection for the entire pet population.

Contact a veterinarian

If you think the symptoms are right for your animal, we recommend that you contact a veterinarian for a consultation.

Dog vaccination

The official vaccination guideline of the German Association of Practising Veterinary Surgeons (BPT) recommends basic immunisation of puppies in three doses at the age of 8, 12 and 16 weeks. Basic immunisation is concluded after a further 12 months. Boosters are given every 1-3 years, depending on the vaccine.
Basic immunisation for dogs consists of the 5-in-1 vaccine against distemper, HCC (hepatitis), parvovirus, parainfluenza and leptospirosis, plus against rabies after 12 weeks.
Further vaccines are required for dogs travelling abroad, depending on the destination. The dog must always be vaccinated against rabies and have an EU pet passport. Contact one of our clinics for more information in good time if you are planning to travel abroad with your dog. This also applies if you plan to use a bitch for breeding purposes.

Cat vaccination

The official vaccination guideline of the German Association of Practising Veterinary Surgeons recommends basic immunisation of kittens in three doses at the age of 8, 12 and 16 weeks. Basic immunisation is concluded after a further 12 months. Boosters are given annually.

Basic immunisation for cats consists of vaccination against panleukopenia and against some types of cat flu. Immunisation against rabies is strongly advised for free-roaming cats. Both panleukopenia and cat flu are extremely contagious and even in the case of cats that are kept only in the house, there is a danger that they will be infected indirectly through humans or objects so they must also be vaccinated.

Further vaccines are required for cats travelling abroad, depending on the destination. The cat must always be vaccinated against rabies and have an EU pet passport. Contact one of our clinics for more information in good time if you are planning to travel abroad with your cat. This also applies if you plan to use a queen for breeding purposes.
