Regular vaccinations are an integral part of your pet’s thorough yearly check-up and assessment, and are a part of their annual health needs in conjunction with regular parasite prevention.
Vaccination is essential to protect your pet from potentially fatal diseases. Further, reputable boarding facilities will insist on up-to-date vaccinations, and usually require proof in the form of a vaccination certificate.
In Sydney, since May 2019, there have been 11 reported cases of Leptospirosis in dogs. For our Mosman locals, there is no major cause for concern, however, if you and your dog travel to the suburbs of Surry Hills, Glebe, Darlinghurst, Redfern and surrounds, please be aware that there have been confirmed cases of Leptospirosis originating in these areas. At Mosman Vet, we are able to vaccinate against Leptospirosis, and coordinate this vaccine with your dog’s regular vaccine schedule as well if needed. Just ask your vet next time you’re in, or call us on (02) 9960 2856.
Rabies vaccinations are also available for overseas travel, and two of our vets are accredited by the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (AQIS).
Mosman Vet prides itself on using modern vaccines that have a gold standard of research and support behind them. Whilst reactions to vaccinations are rare, the vets at Mosman are conscious of this possibility, and have updated the scheduling for dogs and cats so that we do not “over-vaccinate”. The current vaccinations schedules for dogs and cats are below, but if you have any queries about the vaccines we use, or why we use them, please contact our qualified staff on (02) 9960 2856.
