Health Examinations and Preventative Medicine

On a daily basis we provide comprehensive health checks, vaccinations, worming and flea treatment for your pet.

Regular vaccinations will protect your pet from common infectious diseases by strengthening their immunity. Dogs require vaccination for Canine Distemper Virus, Canine Adenovirus, Canine Parvovirus, Canine Parainfluenca Virus and Bordatella bronchiseptica (Kennel Cough).

Puppies are given a primary vaccination course administered at 6, 9 and 12 weeks of age. After these first inoculations, an annual booster vaccination is required.

We don’t commonly vaccinate for Leptospirosis as this disease is more of a concern in the North Island, so let us know if you and your dog are moving there or going on a holiday and we can arrange this for you.

Cats are vaccinated against Feline Herpesvirus 1, Feline Calicivirus, Feline Panleucopania Virus and Chlamydia.

Kittens are given a primary vaccination course administered at 9 and 12 weeks of age. After this, an annual booster vaccination is required.

We recommend worming your pet every three months and flea prevention should be carried out every 4-8 weeks, depending on the product used. We provide a variety of the leading worming and flea products. These are available over the counter at reception. Advice is available free of charge by our staff.
