Request a vaccination for animals considered to be at high risk of catching certain infections

Vaccinations:

We are strictly following the advice set out by the Government and RCVS that initially only permitted veterinary practices to see urgent cases. The guidelines have now been amended in view of the extension to the lockdown period. Based on this advice, Milton Keynes Veterinary Group is now starting to vaccinate animals considered to be at high risk of catching certain infections. This will currently only include puppy and kitten primary vaccinations and rabbit vaccinations.

Due to the restrictions and our aim to maintain a safe environment for clients and staff, we are continuing to see urgent cases as priority over vaccinations so have limited availability at this time. We request that owners read the advice below and submit an on-line request if appropriate. We hope that clients appreciate our aim to protect pets and the public during the coronavirus outbreak.

PUPPIES:

We are concerned that puppies will have no immunity against potentially fatal illnesses such as Parvovirus. We are therefore keen to start the Primary Course of dog vaccinations to puppies to prevent a future wave of preventable infections. Puppies require 2 vaccination injections spaced 3-4 weeks apart followed by annual boosters.

Please contact us on 01908 397777 or complete this request form to arrange an appointment to start a vaccination course for your puppy. If you make an online request you will be contacted to arrange a date and time. We will contact you prior to your appointment to pay for the puppy vaccination course over the phone to reduce the time spent at the surgery.

KITTENS:

We are concerned that kittens will have no immunity against diseases that can be vaccinated against. We are therefore keen to start the Primary Course of cat vaccinations to kittens to prevent these diseases. Kittens require 2 vaccination injections spaced 3-4 weeks apart followed by annual boosters.

Please contact us on 01908 397777 or complete this request form to arrange an appointment to start a vaccination course for your kitten. If you make an online request you will be contacted to arrange a date and time. We will contact you prior to your appointment to pay for the kitten vaccination course over the phone to reduce the time spent at the surgery.

RABBITS:

Rabbits are at high risk in the warmer months of infections spread by insects such as mosquitos. We strongly recommend rabbits receive an annual vaccination against myxomatosis and Haemorrhagic Viral Disease (HVD). Please contact us on 01908 397777 or complete this request form to arrange an appointment for vaccination.

ADULT DOGS:

Unfortunately, we are currently not able to see adult dogs for their annual boosters. Our current protocol means that not all components of the canine vaccine are given yearly as some diseases have prolonged protection for at least 3 years. However, leptospirosis requires an annual booster or protection is lost. Leptospirosis is spread mainly by urine of rats and cattle and the infection is usually caught through contact with contaminated water. We are currently advising that dogs are kept away from lakes, canals, rivers, etc if their vaccination is overdue to reduce the risk of catching leptospirosis. We will take measures to ensure dogs are fully protected against leptospirosis once we are in a position to restart booster vaccinations with no additional cost for top-up 2nd injections.

ADULT CATS:

We usually recommend annual vaccination boosters for cats against cat flu, enteritis and feline leukaemia. We have been advised that cats should be protected even if they go a few months over their annual booster date. Any cats that go significantly over the year when we are able to arrange a vaccination booster will be given 2nd top-up vaccinations at no additional charge.
