“Prevention is better than Cure” - at Lilydale Vet Centre (LVC) we live by this motto; we believe it is in your pet’s best interest to receive their comprehensive yearly exam and vaccinations to help protect against disease and to ensure your pet is as healthy as possible. At LVC, every vaccination is accompanied by a full 15 point health check of your pet. Our vaccination regimes are tailored to provide the best protection against the following diseases:
Parvovirus, distemper, hepatitis, bordetella (canine cough), parainfluenza are all canine diseases which are preventable by vaccination. We also strongly recommend protecting your dog against heartworm with a yearly injection.
Puppies receive 2 rounds of vaccines, the first at 6-8 weeks then 4 weeks later at 10-12 weeks.
We only recommend 2 vaccines at this stage of life as the vaccine we use guarantees full protection from 10 weeks of age.
Feline Herpesvirus, Calicivirus, Feline Parvovirus are diseases that are preventable through vaccination. We also recommend vaccinating against FIV if your cat goes outside.
Kittens receive 3 rounds at 8, 12 & 16 weeks to help set them up for a healthy, happy life.
