A healthy immune system is the best protection your animal has against disease.

Vaccination is a way of promoting your animal’s immunity against certain diseases. Not every disease that your animal may contract has a vaccination, however many of the more serious diseases have a vaccination that has been developed to help promote immunity.

Vaccinations are best given in accordance with the knowledge we have about your animal’s health (from physical examination and/or tests) and lifestyle (from our discussions with you). In general, vaccinations are considered appropriate for the following diseases:

Hepatitis Virus
Distemper Virus
Parainfluenza virus
Bordetella infection

Calicivirus (cat flu)
Herpesvirus (cat flu)
Chlamydia (cat flu)
Feline Enteritis Virus
Feline Leukaemia Virus
AIDS virus (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus)

For those of you lucky enough to have a Rabbit, Ferret or Kangaroo in your life, there are also vaccinations available, and these may be appropriate for your animal’s situation as well.
