No vacation without vaccination

It’s no vacation without vaccination

Before you send your pets off to boarding facilities, make sure that they’re up-to-date with all the vaccinations they’re likely to need.

Please don’t leave this to the last minute as the establishment of immune protection takes time.

Vaccination is important for your pet’s health

Vaccination protects your pet from infections that may be lethal or cause serious disease.

Some infectious diseases such as canine cough, canine parvovirus and “cat flu” are common in Australia.

When staying in boarding facilities, dogs and cats are at higher risk of infectious diseases, so vaccination is especially important.

Immunity following vaccination may reduce over time and so boosters may be required to maintain optimal protection.

Most boarding facilities require dogs to be fully vaccinated with a “C5” vaccine, and cats with an “F3” vaccine.

Please confirm with your boarding facility what their vaccination policy is prior to boarding.

If you have any questions about vaccination please don’t hesitate to call us at 4151 3550
