Vaccinations

Protecting your pet against serious diseases

Vaccinating Your Pet

Just like us, pets can be at risk of catching a range of infectious diseases, some of them potentially deadly. To prevent your pets from catching these diseases, the best way of prevention is by creating immunity in your pets. This can be achieved by an annual vaccination.

Winterbourne & Brimsham Vets carries the fullest available range of vaccinations for dogs, cats, rabbits and ferrets, including the rabies vaccinations for pets being prepared for travel abroad.

We also keep you fully up-to-date by keeping comprehensive records of your pet’s vaccinations and by issuing reminders when boosters are due.

If you are a Pet Health Club member, vaccinations are included in your membership.
