We vaccinate dogs against canine distemper, parvovirus, hepatitis and rabies, which are considered basic diseases. We also vaccinate against leptospirosis, parainfluenza, borreliosis and tetanus, which are optional vaccines.
Primary vaccination of puppies is performed at the age of 8-9 weeks; earlier primary vaccination is possible from 6 weeks of age in puppies that do not have enough maternal antibodies, i.e. were fed artificially for some reason. Revaccination is performed 3-4 weeks after the first vaccination, with the 3rd revaccination performed at 16 weeks of age. Booster vaccination is performed for all dogs at 12 months of age.
Vaccination against rabies can be performed from 3 to 6 months of age, and in puppies traveling abroad it is possible to exceptionally vaccinate at 2 months of age with subsequent revaccination. Revaccination is performed once a year for a polyvalent vaccine and once every 3 years for a monovalent vaccine, depending on the type of vaccine.
We create individual vaccination schedules depending on the breed and lifestyle of the dog and the wishes of the owner. We are not indifferent to concerns that vaccination may raise.
An adult dog that has undergone a basic vaccination cycle as a puppy and received a booster vaccine 12 months later, but has not been regularly vaccinated in adulthood, does not need more than one vaccine to strengthen protective immunity, so repeated vaccination is not necessary.
We provide basic vaccination against panleucopenia, infectious rhinotracheitis, infectious calicivirosis and optional vaccination against rabies, chlamydiosis and the feline leukemia complex.
Primary vaccination of kittens against underlying diseases from 8-9 weeks of age followed by two revaccinations in 3-4 weeks; completion of the basic cycle in the 16th week as with dogs; booster revaccination after 12 months.
When vaccinating a kitten older than 16 weeks, only one revaccination 3-4 weeks apart is sufficient.
Vaccination against FeLV viral leukemia is recommended as early as at 8 weeks, and revaccination is performed once 3-4 weeks apart. Only FeLV-negative cats can be vaccinated, so a blood test is performed before the vaccination itself.
Infectious chlamydiosis is vaccinated for the first time at 9 weeks of age, followed by revaccination in 3-4 weeks. Booster revaccination is performed after 12 months.
Vaccination against rabies is not mandatory for cats, the obligation only applies to cats traveling abroad or going to an international show.
Imagine that your cat or dog gets lost. With chipping you can give them a chance to come home.
Chipping is an easy and safe way to provide your pet with permanent identification should they be lost. A chip is a device the size of a grain of rice that is inserted into the subcutaneous tissue on the left side of the neck using a chipping needle. A scanner is then used to check the location and functionality of the chip.
If a dog is lost, a veterinarian, police officer or shelter worker uses a scanner to find out if the dog is chipped and looks for it in the animal register. The register then contacts the owner. It is therefore important to send the chip number with the data to the National Register of Pet Owners.
We recommend chipping the animal as well as having the owner’s information on the collar.
Animal microchipping is necessary when traveling abroad.
Based on Decree 18/2004 Coll., it is obligatory to microchip animals in the territory of Prague from January 1, 2005.
The issue of a pet passport is not mandatory in the Czech Republic, but it is mandatory when traveling abroad, both within and outside the European Union. Each passport contains a country code and a serial number determined by the State Veterinary Administration of the Czech Republic. The passport can be issued along with the chipping or vaccination, or later on if the owner decides to travel with a dog, cat or other animal.
The passport serves as a vaccination card; in addition to records of vaccination, deworming, treatment against ticks, etc. are also recorded here.
