Vaccinations in the U.K.

Puppies in the UK are normally vaccinated against the following diseases – all of which can and do occur still in the UK:-

Hepatitis (Canine adenovirus)

Vaccination against Kennel cough (Parainfluenza virus) is optional but very advisable if your pup/dog is going to be mixing with many others at shows, or in boarding kennels.

Vaccination against Rabies is NOT done routinely in the UK but is essential if you need to get a Pet’s Passport for travel abroad with your pet at some time in the future and wish to avoid quarantine coming back into the UK from countries designated on the Pets Passport scheme – this does NOT apply to all countries.

Your own vet will advise you as to the correct age for the pup’s vaccinations – usually 2 injections 2-4 weeks apart – based on the vaccine he/she uses and also on the presence of diseases in your area.

Your vet will also advise you about the necessity for booster vaccinations and frequency of boosters, in your own area.
Again this can vary a great deal, so please be guided by your vet.

Vaccinations do make sense and help protect your pet against potentially fatal diseases.
