Concord Veterinary Hospital, is committed to providing the best possible care for cats and dogs. One important aspect of pet care is vaccinations, which help protect pets from a range of diseases. We offer comprehensive vaccination services for both cats and dogs, ensuring that pets are protected against common illnesses and diseases.
For dogs, the core vaccinations recommended by the Australian Veterinary Association (AVA) include the canine distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus, and rabies vaccines. Additional vaccinations may also be recommended based on the dog’s individual needs and lifestyle. For example, the leptospirosis vaccine may be recommended for dogs that spend time outdoors or near bodies of water, as this disease can be transmitted through contact with infected urine.
For cats, the core vaccinations recommended by the AVA include the feline herpesvirus, calicivirus, panleukopenia, and rabies vaccines. Additional vaccinations may also be recommended based on the cat’s individual needs and lifestyle. For example, the feline leukemia virus vaccine may be recommended for cats that go outdoors or live with other cats.
At Concord Veterinary Hospital, the staff works with pet owners to create customised vaccination plans for their pets. This plan takes into account the pet’s age, health status, lifestyle, and other factors that may affect its susceptibility to disease. The staff also provides education and guidance on the importance of vaccination and how to recognise the signs of illness.
In addition to providing vaccinations, Our vets also provide regular check-ups and wellness exams for pets. These exams can help detect and prevent health issues before they become more serious. The hospital also provides parasite prevention and treatment services, such as flea and tick prevention, as well as heartworm prevention for dogs.
By providing comprehensive vaccination services and promoting preventative care, Concord Veterinary Hospital helps pet owners keep their cats and dogs healthy and happy.
