Important information regarding vaccination certificates

Kennels and catteries have always required an up-to-date vaccination certificate before any animals are permitted to board at their premises.

But, in recent years, these certificates have become more complicated, with new ‘target’ vaccines available and some durations of immunity extending for up to three years for certain diseases.

To avoid confusion in the future, MSD Animal Health has issued veterinary surgeons using MSD Animal Health vaccines with supplements to the vaccination certificate that can be used to indicate more clearly when the next vaccination is due. If you have not seen one of these supplements, or would like further information, please contact your local veterinary surgeon or view the extended duration of immunity section on this website.
