Vaccines are an important way of protecting your pet from infectious disease. There are slight differences between Cats and Dogs, but its recommended that both have annual checkups, quarterly deworming, and regular flea and tick treatments depending on the area.
Vaccinating your Cat or dog
In agreement with the recent guidelines of the Australian Veterinary Association (AVA), I usually recommend 1-3 year between boosters, you can read the AVA guidelines on this vaccination here.
If you want to discuss your pets vaccination schedule please call me on 0414 222 008, or you can book online now, and I'll come and vaccinate your pet at home.
