Latest research: Use of vaccines and factors associated with their uptake variability in dogs, cats and rabbits attending a large sentinel network of veterinary

Published on

Our latest paper entitled 'Use of vaccines and factors associated with their uptake variability in dogs, cats and rabbits attending a large sentinel network of veterinary practices across Great Britain' has been published in Epidemiology and Infection.  The paper is available as open access.

  • Over 20% of pets had no recorded vaccination.
  • Both cats, but especially rabbits, were less likely to have recorded vaccines than dogs.
  • In those animals recieving vaccines, cats recieved more core vaccines (FCV, FHV and FPV) than dogs (CDV, CAV, CPV).
  • Feline leukaemia vaccine was used almost as often as core vaccines in cats.
