Regular vaccinations are a very important part of your pets health regieme. At Arg Beiyn we promote vaccinations for Dogs, Cats, Rabbits and Horses. This page gives a brief description of the vaccinations available for each animal. Please talk to our staff or arrange an appointment if you require any more information. All visits for vaccinations also include a full health check-up by the vet.
Dogs : We routinely vaccinate dogs for the following diseases - Distemper, Leptospirosis, Parvovirus, Hepatitis and Parvovirus. They require a booster for Leptospirosis every year and the remainder every 3 years. This give the most complete cover possible. Leptospirosis is quite prevalent on the Isle of Man and every dog should receive this vaccine. Puppies require their first injections at 8 weeks of age and a second dose 2 weeks later.
Cats : Cat vaccinations cover the following diseases - Feline Enteritis, 2 forms of cat flu and Feline Leukeamia. Boosters are required every year. Kittens have their first vaccinations at 9 weeks of age and the second dose at 12 weeks.
Rabbits : There are two main infectious diseases that we can vaccinate rabbits for. Myxomatosis and Viral Haemorraghic Disease(VHD). Both of these diseases are highly contagious and usually fatal. A booster is required every year and if there is a major breakout of the the disease, every 6 months for Myxomatosis. They can start on their Myxomatosis vaccine at 6 weeks of age and VHD from 10 weeks. There needs to be a 2 week gap between these two vaccinations.
Horses : Horses are routinely vaccinated for Equine flu and Tetanus.
The flu vaccine is boosted every year and tetanus every 2 years. Foals can be
vaccinated from 6 months of age. If you are intending to competeyour horse
and need to be fully vaccinated under Jockey Club or FEI rules, boosters must
be done prior to the yearly anniversary of the vaccine date. If you go over this
date you will have to start again. Please call the surgery for details and advice
on the requirements to start
