Dog and Cat Vaccinations in Doha, Qatar

One of the most important aspects of owning a pet is keeping them healthy and The Veterinary Surgery in Doha works for the same goal with preventive care. Dog and cat vaccinations prevent a number of potentially fatal viruses and diseases. When a booster series is complete, our vets recommend that your four-legged friend is revaccinated on a regular basis. After all, complete care makes for the healthiest pets.

Dog and cat vaccination schedules for adult and senior pets vary and are dependent on a number of factors including breed, activity level, health status, and lifestyle. Therefore, we customize a schedule for your pet during his or her wellness exam appointments. Below is a list of the pet vaccines that we generally recommend for cats and dogs.

Dog and Cat Vaccinations in Doha, Qatar

Recommended Vaccinations for Cats and Kittens

We recommend that kittens receive their first series of vaccinations at 6 weeks of age, with the following boosters during the first year:

6-8 weeks:

  • 1st booster of Fel-O-Vax (includes panleukopenia, calicivirus, feline rhinotracheitis [flu], and chlamydia)

10-12 weeks:

  • 2nd booster of Fel-O-Vax
  • 1st booster of Fel-O-Leukemia

14-16 weeks:

  • 3rd booster of Fel-O-Vax
  • 2nd booster of Fel-O-Leukemia
  • 2nd booster of anti-rabies vaccine

When this vaccination series is complete, we vaccinate your kitten on an annual basis for the three vaccines listed above—all at one time—except for cats that showed a reaction after the anti-rabies vaccines. For those cats, we inject the anti-rabies vaccine several weeks after the annual vaccinations.

Recommended Vaccinations for Dogs and Puppies

We recommend that puppies receive their first series of vaccinations at 6-8 weeks of age, with the following boosters during the first year:

6-8 weeks:

  • 1st booster of distemper (includes parvovirus, distemper, hepatitis, and leptospirosis)

10-12 weeks

  • 2nd booster of distemper
  • 1st booster of kennel cough (optional, but required if boarding or grooming at our hospital)

14-16 weeks

  • 3rd booster of distemper
  • 2nd booster of kennel cough
  • 2nd booster of anti-rabies vaccine

When this series of vaccinations has been completed, your puppy will be vaccinated annually for the three vaccines listed above—all at one time—except for dogs that suffered a reaction after the anti-rabies vaccines. For those dogs, the anti-rabies vaccine will be injected at a later time, several weeks after the annual vaccinations.
