Why Vaccination is important

Vaccination is important to protect your pet.  Should your pet become infected, treatment can require frequent visits to your vet and possibly hospitalisation.  However, not all diseases can be cured and disability or death may result.  The only practical means of protection is vaccination.

We recommend all dogs receive vaccination with C5 and C2i  (covering Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus, Canine Cough, Coronavirus and Leptosporosis). Their first vaccine is at 6-8 weeks old, then 10-12 weeks, then 14-16 weeks. Dogs then require annual boosters.

We have witnessed several outbreaks of Parvo virus in our region over the years and it is a devastating virus.

If you are unsure how to best protect your pet, then contact us at Murwillumbah Vet Clinic for advice.
