Pet Vaccinations

Pet vaccinations (also known as immunisation) are a safe and reliable way to protect your pet from contagious and dangerous diseases.

Pet Vaccinations at Tamborine Mountain, Yarrabilba, Canungra and Pimpama City Vets
Vaccinating your pet is one of the most important things you can do to ensure they lead a healthy life.

Regular vaccinations protect your pet against common, potentially fatal, infectious diseases. Puppies & Kittens require an initial course of injections to protect them and vaccines are usually administered at 6 – 8 weeks, 10 – 12 weeks and 14 – 16 weeks of age. Adult dogs and cats need an annual vaccination & these are combined with a full health check to ensure that they are fit & well prior to the vaccination being administered. This is also an ideal opportunity for you to ask any questions you have relating to your pets health & general care.

Your pet’s health, lifestyle and age may affect which vaccinations are necessary, so our veterinarians will work with you to develop a simple and effective vaccination program for your pet.

Dog Vaccinations

The diseases we commonly vaccinate dogs against are:

  • Parvovirus: causes acute, haemorrhagic diarrhoea, and serious dehydration that requires intensive treatment and can be fatal in puppies and adults.
  • Distemper:  signs include a pus discharge from the eyes and nose, blindness, respiratory difficulties and can also cause fitting, seizures & collapse.
  • Hepatitis: An infectious liver condition that is not generally treatable and is therefore often fatal.
  • Canine Cough: Is comprised of 2 different diseases
    •  Bordatella Bronchiseptica: a bacterial infection causing a harsh, dry cough and lethargy
    • Parainfluenza: a viral cough that can sometimes develop into secondary pneumonia.

  • Feline Enteritis (Panleukopenia) . It causes fever, vomiting, diarrhoea, liver failure and sudden death
