Prevention

Vaccination schedule for dogs

We vaccinate dogs against canine distemper, parvovirus, hepatitis and rabies, which are “core” vaccines and those are recommended for every dog. “Noncore” vaccines include leptospirosis, parainfluenza virus, borrelia and tetanus.

Puppies need to be vaccinated at 8-9 weeks of age, earlier vaccination is possible at 6 _DSC4788 v01weeks, but only in puppies with low level of mothernal antibodies if they were bottle – fed. Revaccination is recommended in next 3-4 weeks after first shot and and the last one in 16 weeks of age. We recommend booster vaccination at 1 year of age.

Rabies vaccine is the only shot required by law. Dogs aged over 3 months can be inoculated against rabies. Exceptionally we can vaccinate puppy at the age of 2 month (travelling abroad) but with revaccination in next 6 months. Rabies vaccine is given one time per year in polyvalent vaccines and only one time per 3 years in monovalent vaccine.

At our clinic we usually use polyvalent vaccines Duramune and Nobivac and monovalent vaccines Nobivac Rabies a and Nobivac L against leptospirosis.

Vaccination schedule is individual and depends on breed and way of life (e.g. difference between way of life of a young hunting dog and toy breed).

Adult dogs, which undertook vaccination schedule as a puppy and got their booster shot at 12 months, but weren´t vaccinated for next several years, don´t need to get more than one shot to booster their immunity.

 

Vaccination schedule for cats

We vaccinate cats against panleucopenia, infection rhinotracheitis, infection calicivirosis, which are “core” vaccines. “Noncore” vaccines for cats include chlamydiosis, feline leukemia and rabies._DSC4724 v01 kopie

Kittens should be vaccinated at 8-9 weeks of age and revaccinated in next 3-4 weeks. The last shot is given at 16 weeks and booster shot at 1 year of age.The schedule is pretty much the same as dogs.

If we vaccinate kitty 16 weeks older, we recommend only one revaccination in 3-4 weeks.

Vaccination against feline leukemia is possible at 8 weeks of age. Revaccination is given after 3-4 weeks. Only FeLV negative cats can be vaccinated, it´s necessary to make a blood test for FeLV antigen before the shot. Booster shot is givet at 1 year of age.

Chlamydiosis vaccine is given at 9 weeks of age with one revaccination and booster at 1 year.

Vaccination against rabies is not required by law. We recommend vaccinate cats travelling abroad or living outdoor. We usually use monovalent vaccine Nobivac Rabies,that is valid for 3 years.

 

Microchipping

Imagine, that your dog or cat get lost. With microchip, you can give them a chance to return home safely.

Microchipping is a simple and safe procedure how to identificate your pet, if he/she gets _DSC4736 v01lost. Chip is a size of a grain of rice and we install it in the skin fold on the left side of the neck. Than we read the chip with the scanner.

If your pet get lost, veterinarian, policeman or shelter worker read the chip and look him/her up in the register. It is absolutely necessary to sent your data(adress, phone number, email) to the register.

We recommend microchipping all animals and using collar marks.

Microchipping your pet is required for travelling abroad.

From 1.1.2005 on the base of public notice 18/2004, it´s  required to microchip all dogs in Prague.

 

Pet passport

It´s a document that officially records information related to a specific animal. It´s required for travelling between countries of the EU without undergoing quarantine.

Every passport has its own code number, that is specific for the state, where the passport was issued.

We can issue a passport when we microchip or vaccinate your pet. But we can do it later,if you decide to travel with your pet.

Pet passport is then used insted of certifiate of vaccination.
