The Basic Injection Course.

The Basic course costs £30.00 in total.

Our Basic Course, whilst providing protection against the same diseases as the standard and advanced courses, does not provide any protection early on in the vaccination program. The early protection for these puppies is dependent on the immunity provided by their mothers' colostrum (first milk). The immunity from the mothers can vary greatly. Full protection is totally dependent on the final injection at 12 weeks old or later. For this reason puppies protected using this program should not be allowed out onto the streets (where they may pick up infection) until at least 2 weeks after the final injection. (The standard and advanced courses only require a wait of 1 week after the final injection). This course is intended to assist those owners where finance is a real issue. If your puppy is over 18 weeks old, this course (with the injections given in reverse order) may be perfectly adequate and provide full protection within 1 week of the final injection. Puppies should not be left deliberately until they are 18 weeks old to take advantage of this. The Basic Course 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]
