PREVENTIVE MEDECINE

Refers to measures taken to prevent diseases rather than curing them or treating their symptoms.

Vaccinations

We offer routine vaccination schemes as well as optional. Vaccination is the most effective method of preventing infectious diseases. At approximately 6 weeks of age, puppies and kittens need to receive their first vaccination. Two more vaccinations follow a few weeks later and annual vaccinations (boosters) are recommended to keep your pet healthy.

Routine vaccinations for dogs:

  • Distemper virus
  • Canine Hepatitis
  • Parvovirus
  • Leptospirosis
  • Parainfluenza

 

Routine vaccinations for cats:

  • Calicivirus
  • Herpes virus (Rhinotracheitis or Cat Flu)
  • Panleukopenia virus (Feline Enteritis)
  • Leukemia virus
  • Chlamydia

 

Optional:

  • Rabies vaccine. Since Cyprus is a rabies free country rabies vaccinations are carried out on animals that are planning to travel overseas
  • Kennel cough vaccine
  • Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease (Pet Rabbits)
