Australia has strict quarantine, and many diseases which are prevalent in pets abroad are absent from our country. However, there are still many infectious diseases that can harm your animal. Some are quite common while others are rare. Either way, if your pet has had the proper vaccines, you can rest assured that you've done everything you can to keep them safe.
Vaccination is an important step for keeping your pet happy, healthy and safe from disease. At Kirrawee Veterinary Hospital, we can provide a series of important vaccinations for your dog or cat.
There are two types of vaccines for pets. They are:
- Core vaccinations – these are recommended for all cats and dogs because the disease they protect against are severe and/or common in Australia
- Non-core vaccinations – these are only recommended for cats and dogs who live in situations that put them at risk of the disease in question
