Leptospirosis Vaccination Shortage Update - October 2023
As many dog owners know, there has been an ongoing interruption to the supply of the Leptospirosis vaccination stock. The latest update from the manufacturer is to expect stock in the first few months of 2024. Once we receive our allocation, we will be making our way through the back log to ensure all dogs are brought up to date. This may take some time as the stock will be shared amongst all vets in Sydney.
The Leptospirosis vaccination is not part of the core vaccines, and is not a necessity to board your dog in a kennel facility. Due to recent confirmed Leptospirosis cases on the lower north shore, the University of Sydney Veterinary Hospital recommends all dogs to be vaccinated against Leptospirosis, as this disease is not only zoonotic (can be transferred to humans) but has a high fatality rate.
Leptospirosis is mainly transmitted through rat urine, so the best way to prevent your dog from contracting the disease is by stopping them from drinking from stagnant water puddles.
If you have any questions about Leptospirosis and the vaccination, please phone our team to discuss on 9960 2856

Extremely caring and professional team who go above and beyond with lovely service. Puppy school is also well run. They are great with sending reminders and following up. Highly recommended.

Thank you to all the staff who have helped our dog Chad with everything, from bathing, to medication. Thank you for all the care and support for Chad over the years and especially the last 6 months. Knowing that you really care made it all that much easier to cope.

I frantically tried a vet that was open and nearby on a Saturday afternoon, after I thought my new foster dog has broken her hip (She didn't thank goodness!) Everyone at the Vet's were so lovely (I was a bit frantic, as I only had her for less than 24 hours. Very kind, compassionate and reliable the all female staff were. I'd go back there in a heartbeat, and recommend for anyone who needs a good vet.

I have been bringing my animal companions to Mosman Vet for many years now and feel so fortunate! My pets have always been given the most professional service and expert care and nothing is too much trouble for Rachele, Chris and the friendly staff. A huge thank you!

Just a shout out to this amazing team of vets who have cared for our fur kids now for many years. Not a visit goes by without a welcome, a smile and an hello to us as the human owners but also to our fur kids ... they have given buckets of genuine love to our fur kids and to both myself and Di over the years. Just a minor check for M today but left feeling so blessed to have the care we get both from a veterinarian stand point but also and most importantly from a care, love and kindness stand point. It costs nothing to care but means the world when you either get it or you don’t and the team at Mosman Veterinary Hospital have always had our backs and the backs of our fur kids. Thanks for caring and loving the fluffs and always treating us and the fluffs with such kindness. It’s never taken for granted. X

A special mention to the wonderful action taken by Mosman Veterinary Hospital this afternoon. A wounded cockatoo found on Spit road was taken in without hesitation and has been treated with such care and kindness ... any Mosman Moggy or Cavoodle would be so lucky. Thank you to all the lovely staff....

We really appreciate the loving care Rachele and all the staff at Mosman Vet have always given Teddy. We have been very fortunate to have Rachele as our vet.

Dear Everyone at Mosman Vet - Thank you so, so, so much for looking after me so very well when I recently cut my paw. It was stupid of me to chase that car and I have promised Ginta that I will not do it again. I must've skipped that chapter in the "Intelligent Border Collie Manual"...
My neighbour's gorgeous big loping gentle labradoodle got claustrophobia. We laughed at him. It didn't help. He looked even more bashful and shrank behind their legs. They smirked too, but I think they tried to make sure he didn't see. A dog with claustrophobia? Surely you can't be serious. Apparently it is serious, though the symptoms manifest themselves in different ways to the human parallel. Anyway, with plenty of TLC and advice from Mosman Vet the poor shame-faced pet is regaining his composure - though it's not been a quick process. Plenty of patience and sympathy - particularly courtesy of the team of caring and attentive vet nurses.

I’m sure Mosman Vet hear many people say their pet is treated "just like another member of the family" and that is how I feel about Amber. I would like to thank Rachele and Chris for the way they have treated her, not just during the difficult times, but for the past 10 years. She could not have had better care.

Against the odds, we celebrated our beautiful dog, Wilbur’s 10th birthday today. Without your kindness, persistence and care, this would not have been possible. Thank you!

The most friendly, compassionate and dedicated team of people, right from the Receptionists to the Nurses and Vets. Extraordinary.

Chris Mather has taken such good care of our cat Reg over the years. He has been so considerate both financially and emotionally. We have never met a Vet with such compassion. He really is a special person.
