Your Pet's Health

Vaccination

We are as concerned to prevent diseases occurring in your pet as we are in treating them when they arise. Vaccines play a vital role in disease prevention. Annual boosters are essential in maintaining your pets immunity to preventable diseases.

The thorough health check which we give at the time of vaccination can also be crucial in diagnosing conditions that can be successfully treated if identified early.

Dog vaccinations

Vaccination against distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus and leptospirosis virus is strongly recommended. We offer puppy vaccinations from 8 weeks of age which requires a course of two injections given 2-4 weeks apart.

Additionally, dogs going to boarding kennels should be vaccinated against kennel cough. All these vaccinations require an annual booster.

Rabies vaccination is available for animals requiring Pet Passports or travelling outside the EU.

Cat vaccinations

Vaccines for cat flu, enteritis, and leukaemia are strongly recommended.

Kittens can be vaccinated from 9 weeks of age and require a course of two injections given three weeks apart. Cats require an annual booster vaccination.

Rabbit vaccinations

Vaccination against myxomatosis and viral haemorrhagic disease (RVHD) are available and recommended. Vaccinations can be started from 5 weeks of age.

A vaccine for a new strain of viral haemorrhagic disease (RVHD2) is also available.

Nutrition

Proper nutrition plays an important role in the overall health and well being of your pet.

Pet nutrition can range from being something that merely sustains a pet’s life to foods that can actually help manage certain health problems.

Most pet foods contain nutrition for a specific stage of your pet’s life. When selecting a food, make sure the product is appropriate for your pet’s age and lifestyle. Feeding your pet properly is more involved than following instructions on a bag or can.  Too little or too much of certain nutrients can be detrimental to a pet’s health. The nutrients of importance, and the amount that is ideal, vary by life stage, activity level and health condition.

At Redleaves, we recommend Hill’s foods for dogs and cats.  We are happy to assess your pet’s health and recommend a food that provides the optimum balance of nutrients for your pet’s needs.

Nutrient control is the basis of all Hill’s products. Their foods are specially formulated to provide proper nutrition specifically for your pet based on age, activity level and physical condition.

For rabbits and guinea pigs we recommend Burgess Excel range as part of their dietary requirements. Their foods are nutritionally balanced and formulated into pellets to prevent selected feeding.

Parasite Control

Effective flea and tick control and worming is a vital part of caring for the health and wellbeing of your pet.  Some of these parasites may also affect the health of you and your family.  A veterinary prescribed treatment combination of tablet, injection, paste and/or a spot-on preparation is an efficient and cost effective way to treat your pet.  It may also be necessary to treat the home environment.

We have recently seen more cases of lungworm (Angiostrongylus vasorum), which is passed on by slugs and snails, and therefore we strongly recommend treatment with an effective veterinary product for this potentially fatal condition.  More information is available at www.lungworm.co.uk
