Puppy that received pet vaccinations near AlphingtonPet Vaccinations in Ivanhoe

Serving Patients from Alphington to Eaglemont

In order to prevent a number of life-threatening diseases occurring in your pets, we recommend keeping your pet’s vaccinations up to date. For kittens and puppies we generally recommend a series of 3 vaccinations – 6-8 weeks of age, 10-12 weeks of age and 14-16 weeks of age. 

 

At the Ivanhoe Veterinary Clinic we routinely vaccinate Dogs, Cats and Rabbits.

 

Dogs

The C5 vaccination protects dogs against Canine Parvovirus, Canine Distemper, Canine Hepatitis as well as the 2 main forms of Kennel Cough. We are now pleased to offer the triennial canine vaccine at our clinic - a vaccination that reliably provides three years of protection against canine distemper, hepatitis and parvovirus. However, annual vaccination is still required to protect against the highly contagious canine cough (kennel cough). 

 

Cats

The F3 vaccination protects cats against Feline Herpesvirus, Feline Calicivirus and Feline Panleukopaenia. For cats that spend a proportion of their time outdoors, we also highly recommend cats be vaccinated against Feline Immunodeficiency Virus

(FIV vaccination) which is commonly spread by cat bites.

 

Rabbits

Cyclap vaccination to confer immunity against rabbit viral haemorrhagic disease.

 

 

As well as gaining the health benefits offered from the vaccine itself, during the vaccination consultation our Vets will also conduct a thorough physical examination of your pet and answer any questions or concerns that you may have.
