The main vaccines recommended for dogs include those against canine parvovirus, canine adenovirus and canine distemper. Other vaccinations that may be recommended for your dog include: parainfluenza virus, Bordetella bronchiseptica (these 2 viruses are known to cause kennel cough) and Leptospira interrogans.
We use Vanguard 5+ at Veterinary Associates Takanini to cover these diseases and also routinely vaccinate with leptoguard. Although kennel cough is most easily spread in high density areas, it is not limited to kennels, and dogs can get this infectious disease from other dogs while socialising during activities such as walks.
Dogs will always be mankind’s loyal companion and definitely the most sought-after pet for most people. Therefore, giving your dog the care and attention it rightfully deserves is a small token of gratitude we as people can show for their unreserved loyalty and companionship.
