Highlighting the need for vaccinations in animals during September….

Puppies and Kittens require at least 2 injections as youngsters then yearly boosters to maintain their immunity for life.  Annual check-ups are also a great way for the vet to give your animal a thorough examination especially as they get older.  Things like dental disease, cancers and eye problems if picked up early can be treated far more effectively.

Dogs in Tropical North Queensland are routinely vaccinated for the following diseases: Parvovirus, Distemper, Canine Hepatits, Canine cough, Leptospirosis

Cats are vaccinated routinely against the following diseases: Feline Enteritis, Feline Respiratory Disease (Cat Flu), Feline AIDS. 

Horses are routinely vaccinated against the following diseases:Tetanus, Strangles, Hendra virus.

Cattle in North Queensland are commonly vaccinated against the following diseases: Botulism & Clostridial diseases – There are 5 significant Clostridial diseases of cattle, the most important of which is Tetanus.  The 5 in 1 vaccine covers these diseases. Bovine Ephemeral Fever (3 Day Sickness) – This is a virus spread by biting insects and causes acute lameness and fever.  Losses of around 10% can occur from year to year in affected cattle. Pestivirus – This is a reproductive disease causing infertility, abortions, stillbirths and calves that do not thrive.  This disease is the most significant reproductive disease in Australia at the moment.

During the month of September Tropical Vet Services will be trying our best to encourage people to get their animals vaccinations back up to date.  Our computer records are easily able to track your animal’s vaccination history and we will be able to advise you on how best to get your animal back on track.  Give us a call at one of the following clinics – Babinda, Innisfail, Mission Beach, Tully, Cardwell or our Hinchinbrook clinic in Ingham.
