  • Canine Adenovirus (Canine Infectious Hepatitis) is a disease that causes acute liver failure and kidney disease. Transmission is via contact with infected urine and nasal secretions.

Feline Core Vaccinations

United Veterinary Clinic provides comprehensive core vaccinations for cats.

  • Feline Panleukopenia (Feline Parvovirus) is a fatal disease that causes severe gastrointestinal illness, resulting in profuse bloody diarrhea and vomiting. Unvaccinated cats of all ages can be affected. Kittens are the most susceptible. Transmission is via the oral-fecal route.
  • Feline Herpes Virus & Feline Calicivirus (Feline Respiratory Disease complex) also known as “Cat Flu” syndrome, are highly contagious viruses that can cause severe respiratory tract infections. Transmission is via contact with aerosolized secretions.
  • Feline Chlamydia is a disease that causes severe and persistent conjunctivitis. Progression can lead to other respiratory symptoms.
Kennel Cough Vaccinations

Protect your precious dogs from kennel cough, allow them to safely socialise and mingle.

  • Bordetella bronchiseptica commonly referred to as “Kennel Cough”. This bacterial disease causes respiratory symptoms, mainly a dry, hacking cough. Transmission is via contact with aerosolized secretions.
Rabies Vaccinations

United Veterinary Clinic provides rabies vaccinations for dogs and cats travelling abroad. Rabies is a highly deadly viral disease that affects the nervous system. The virus can also be spread to humans. As Singapore is a rabies-free country, pets living in Singapore do not require a routine rabies vaccination.

Leptospirosis Vaccination

Leptospira is a bacterial disease that causes acute kidney failure. Transmission is via infected urine and contaminated water-bodies. Although leptospirosis is considered an optional vaccine, it is considered to be endemic in Singapore. In 2016 there was reported spike of leptospirosis in Singapore.

All dogs are advised to be kept up to date with leptospirosis vaccinations. The bacteria survive well in stagnant water pools, sewage and can be spread by rats. Leptospirosis is a zoonotic disease (spread between animal and human) that can cause severe liver and kidney damage in humans too.

Vaccine Antibody Titre Testing

United Veterinary Clinic provides canine vaccine antibody titer testing services to allow paw parents to make an informed decision with vaccination and avoid over or under vaccinating their pets.

Check if your fur babies still have adequate antibody levels from their last vaccination booster. Adult dogs have the option to vaccinate core vaccinations every 3 years provided they have sufficient antibody protection.
