The Advanced-Plus Puppy Injection Course.

The Advanced course costs £65.00 in total.

Our Advanced-Plus Course, whilst providing protection against the same diseases as the Basic and Standard & Advanced courses, like the Standard & Advanced courses (and unlike the Basic Course) it does provide some protection early on in the vaccination program and the puppy's life. Protection for all diseases begins immediately with the first injection and not just the final injection at 12 weeks old or later. Even so, puppies protected using this program should not be allowed out onto the streets immediately (where they may pick up infection) but only have to wait one week after the final injection.

The Advanced-Plus Course Differs from the Standard Course in that it includes a microchip and the registration of the chip on a central database in your name.

The Difference between the Advanced Plus and the Advanced Course is that the Advanced Plus Also includes protection against Kennel Cough. Although Kennel cough is not usually a fatal disease it is highly contageous and results in a severe cough that may go on for 2-3 weeks even with treatment. If you intend to put your puppy into kennels when you go on holiday the kennels will insist that your pet is vaccinated against kennel cough. There are currently two types of kennel cough vaccine and neither are given by injection. They are nasal vaccines and are given by dripping the vaccine solution into the nose. The vaccine we use provides protection for 12 months and not 6 like the other one.

This program includes the following:
  1. Distemper
  2. Parvovirus
  3. Two types of Canine Adenovirus
    • CAV 1 (Canine Adenovirus Type 1) (which causes Rubarth's disease - a severe hepatitis or liver disease)
    • CAV 2 (Canine Adenovirus Type 2) (which causes part of the Kennel Cough disease complex)
  4. Parainfluenza (which is a minor part of the kennel cough disease complex)
  5. Another vaccination against both types of leptospirosis.
  6. Two types of leptospirosis (Diseases from rats)
    • The first is Canicola fever or Weill’s disease.Leptospira Canicola [which causes kidney disease]
    • The second affects the liver causing hepatitis) Letospira Icterohaemorrhagica [which causes liver disease - hepatitis]

The microchip can be implanted and this is usually done at this consultation. In small animals it is sometimes left until later when they have grown a little or perhaps left until the animal is neutered.

The Kennel Cough vaccine should not be given at the same time as any other vaccine. It is usually given two weeks after the final injectable vaccine.
