We continue to recommend the annual use of Lepto 2 vaccine for protection against the strains of leptospirosis most likely to be encountered by dogs in the UK. This is based on the long safety and efficacy record for Lepto 2 vaccine.
Vaccination against the viral diseases of dogs (distemper, hepatitis and parvo) is generally on a tri-annual basis after initial primary vaccination and booster.
Cats are routinely vaccinated against herpesvirus, calicivirus, panleukopaenia virus and feline leukaemia virus with tailored protocols. We generally do not suggest continuing FeLV vaccination beyond 9 years of age based on a risk:benefit analysis.
We offer annual rabbit vaccination against myxomatosis, viral haemorrhagic disease type-1 and Type-2 (new variant).
There is no licensed vaccination for ferrets or polecats, however we can vaccinate your ferret against canine distemper virus (CDV) with an appropriate dose of dog vaccine, should you want the added reassurance of CDV protection.
We supply a variety of high-quality food and bedding for rabbits, cavys and rodents.
Everything we sell at Deepdale is accompanied by free general health care advice on feeding, behaviour and much more, to ensure your new pet gets the best start in life.
Even if you already have a pet, come down and talk to us if you have any questions
If you love parrots, please visit the National Parrot Sanctuary
Parrots are extremely intelligent, comparable to a young child in their need for stimulation and company. It is wholly unacceptable to purchase a parrot and keep it in a cage for prolonged periods, no matter the size.
The cage should be considered a place of refuge for eating and sleeping, and for the majority of the day it should be left open. Daily interaction with a variety of people and animals is essential to ensure a well-socialised and friendly bird, and reduce the risk of behavioural problems.
Parrots should never be bought on impulse, only after careful consideration and research. Remember, they are a 25-70 year commitment!
You will always find parrots for sale on the internet at low prices - there is usually a reason for this, typically related to behavioural or other problems.
We can supply veterinary wormers and supplements for poultry and other birds, and our veterinary surgeons are experienced in the majority of domestic avian conditions.
