As a pet owner, it is up to you to ensure your pet’s vaccinations are kept up to date whether they’ve been with you from birth or from later in life. Vaccinating your pets not only helps to prevent them from falling ill to certain infectious diseases, but also stops them from transferring particular animal diseases to humans. The immunity provided to your pet from the vaccination is also essential to their long term health and wellbeing. If you’re looking for a pet vaccination clinic in the northern suburbs of Melbourne with the warmth and experience to perform pet vaccinations in a non-intimidating environment, make a call to Northern Suburbs Veterinary Clinics and take the necessary steps towards protecting your precious pet.
There are two major categories of pet vaccinations for both dogs and cats – core and non-core immunisations. Those considered core are typically administered to all types of dogs and cats, with dogs being immunised against canine forms of distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus and rabies, while cats are protected against rabies, feline viral rhinotracheitis (feline herpes virus), feline calicivirus and feline distemper (feline panleukopenia virus). Non-core vaccinations are generally regarded as secondary and are only administered to specific cats or dogs depending on their geographical location and environment, amongst many other factors.
Call either of our pet vaccination clinics in Watsonia or Meadow Heights to book your pet in for their immunisations. Alternatively, we can come to you for a home visit.
