Pet Health Check & Vaccinations in Surry Hills NSW
Pet Health Checks
Pets are exceptional at concealing pain and signs of sickness. They could be suffering from a variety of health problems while appearing to be in good condition. As a result, we recommend getting a health check for all adult pets at least once a year. Routine examinations are also important in the prevention and management of health issues, as early diagnosis of diseases increases treatment outcomes dramatically. It’s also less stressful on owners’ emotional and financial resources.
Our professional veterinarians thoroughly assess your pet during physical examinations, ensuring that everything is in working order. We also offer advice on a variety of general topics, including nutrition, exercise, behavioral difficulties, worming, and flea control.
Pet Health Checks For Older Pets, Puppies, and Kittens
Pets age at a faster rate than humans. This causes a variety of physical and mental changes that should be diagnosed early and treated effectively to ensure that our beloved pets enjoy longer and happier lives. We specialize in age-related diseases such as dental disease, kidney failure, heart disease, cancer, and arthritis at Vets On Crown. For animals beyond the age of seven, we recommend a checkup every six months to ensure that progressive problems are kept under wraps.
To keep puppies and kittens happy and excited during their first visits, they are showered with attention. Your new friends must be thoroughly examined to ensure that they are developing into happy, healthy adults.
Vaccinations are a core part of the preventative health care required for all pets. They protect our pets from illness and disease, helping them to lead a long and happy life.
At Vets On Crown, we are strong believers that prevention is better than a cure, so we recommend annual vaccines, which also allows us to give your pets a full health check and detect any issues early.
Puppies and kittens need a course of vaccinations before they are considered fully covered. Then the vaccines are annual.
Often your pet will come to you with one vaccination – most commonly a C3. Two-four weeks later, your puppy will be due for its second vaccine (either a C5 or C7) and then a third two-four weeks later.
What is a C5 Vaccine?
A C5 vaccine consists of:
- Bordertella Bronchseptia
What is a C7 vaccine?
A C7 vaccine is a C5 with the added Leptospirosis (often shortened to Lepto). This is our most popular vaccine and the one we recommend all dogs in the area are protected with as Lepto is known to be in the area. Sadly, the local area has lost several dogs to Lepto, with the disease affecting the internal organs, it’s often fatal.
Kittens are often sold with one vaccination on board, most commonly an F3.
At Vets On Crown, we will provide recommendations based on your cat’s living situation. Are they inside only? No access to the outside, or have they access to outside for toileting?
If there is any outside access will recommend an F5 vaccination.
What is an F3 vaccination?
An F3 vaccine consists of:
- Panleukopaenia (Feline Parvovirus)
- Rhinotracheitis Virus
- Feline Calicivirus
What is an F5 Vaccine?
An F5 Vaccine is an F3 vaccine with added FIV/Felv Vaccine included. FIV and Felv are spread by blood and saliva exchange which can happen when in contact with infected cats (grooming/catfights)
We will assess the risk of exposure to FIV and Felv and recommend a vaccine protocol most suited to your cat’s lifestyle.
