Protect your pet... Vaccinate!
Responsible pet care requires puppies and kittens to be taken to the vet for their initial course of vaccinations, but this cannot protect them for the rest of their lives. Their immunity weakens over time and your pet can again become susceptible to disease.
Should your pet become infected with any of these diseases, treatment can require frequent visits to your vet and possible hospitalisation. However, not all diseases can be cured, and disability or death may result. The only practical means of protection is vaccination.
Puppies and kittens require an initial course of vaccinations as youngsters and then annual booster vaccinations to maintain their immunity for life. Vaccination time is also a great opportunity for our vet to give your pet their annual health check-up to check them over from nose to tail!
In Tropical North Queensland we recommend your animals have annual vaccinations for the following diseases:
Feline Respitory Disease (Cat Flu)
plus others, check with one of our vets for your specific needs.
Many of these diseases are highly contagious and are very easily spread; some of these diseases, like Parvovirus and Feline Respiratory Disease (Cat Flu), do not even require animal-to-animal contact to spread.
If you need more information on these diseases, call your nearest Tropical Vet Services clinic.
Give our experienced and knowledgeable staff a call to check your pet’s vaccination records and advise you on any gaps in their history to make sure your four-legged friend is up to date with their vaccinations. We can help you get them back on track with being protected.
