Basic Health Care
Vaccinations are vitally important and plays a critical role in the maintenance of a healthy pet.
By vaccinating your pet it will help in the prevention of contracting an infectious disease that can be fatal.
How do vaccines work?
- Vaccines help to strengthen the immune system of your pet so that when they are exposed to certain diseases, their body is able to fend off the infection totally or reduce the severity of the disease.
- It is not possible to vaccinate against all diseases but the most common and serious ones are covered.
- Canine Vaccines consist of 3 vaccines in puppies and annually thereafter in adult dogs (6weeks/9weeks/12weeks)
- Feline vaccines consist of 2 vaccines in kittens and annually thereafter in adult cats (8weeks/12weeks)
The following diseases will be covered by vaccinating,
Infectious Canine Hepatitis
Canine & Feline Rabies
*Feline Bordetella/Kennel Cough
Tick and Flea Treatment
Tick and flea infestation can impact the health of your pet and therefore it is important to use a suitable product to protect them against these parasites and diseases that comes with it. These diseases are easy to prevent just by applying a spot on or chewing a tablet. Biliary can be a stressful and expensive process for you and your pet. The best treatment comes from your vet or health shop and not just over the counter treatment.
Worms are rarely seen so you cannot tell if your pet has worms just by looking at them, the only way to know is by microscopic examination of the faeces to detect the eggs, worms can be very harmful to your pet and can cause serious health issues especially the spirocerca worm that lives in the lungs and heart.
Dogs and anal glands
Sometimes a dogs anal sacs don’t empty properly and can cause irritation of the bottom which makes your pet lick this area a lot or to scoot his bottom along the ground, most people think that the dog has worms and that is why he is doing it if left untreated in can cause infection. Glands don’t need routine attention but if there is irritation, see your vet.
