 Basic Health Check for Puppy or Dog

This first health check will give your veterinarian the information they need to advise you on your puppy’s immediate diet and care. Plus, it will give them a “knowledge base” from which, on subsequent checkups throughout your pup’s life, they can better evaluate, monitor and manage your pet’s health.

 Diseases & Vaccination for your dog

Protecting your best friend - One of the most important things you can do to give your dog a long and healthy life is to ensure that he is vaccinated against common canine diseases. Your dog's mother gave her puppy immunity from disease for the first few weeks of existence by providing disease-fighting antibodies in her milk. After that period it's up to you, with the help and advice of your veterinarian – to provide that protection.

Dental Care for your Dog

Your pet counts on you for protection - With major advances in treating serious infectious and other pet diseases, oral disease – most importantly periodontal or gum disease caused by the buildup of plaque and tartar – has become the number-one health problem for dogs. It’s estimated that without proper dental care 80% of dogs will show signs of oral disease by age three. With your help, your pets can have healthy teeth and gums throughout their lives.

Fleas and Ticks and your Dog

Ticks are small spider-like acarids and fleas are insects, but these two tiny creatures have at least one thing in common—they are both parasites that feed on your dog’s or cat’s blood and can cause a lot of discomfort and more serious health problems. 

Flea bites may go unnoticed on some pets, cause slight irritation in others and produce extensive itching, red lesions, hair loss and even ulcers in those animals with flea allergy dermatitis, which is the result of extreme sensitivity to flea saliva. Severe flea infestations can cause anaemia, especially in puppies and kittens. Fleas can also transmit several diseases, as well as tapeworm. The Paralysis Tick and the Brown Dog Tick are both seen in many parts of Australia, but it is the Paralysis Tick which is by far the most dangerous for dogs and cats, and can cause death in a very short time if your pet develops symptoms and is left untreated. Ticks can also be "vectors" or carriers of a number of bacterial diseases.

Heartworm & Intestinal Parasites

Heartworm is a parasitic disease that can affect any dog regardless of age, sex or habitat. It is found in many parts of Australia. Heartworm is spread by mosquitoes, and tends to have a higher incidence in areas heavily populated by mosquitoes. Dogs are considered the most common host for heartworms, however heartworms may also infect more than thirty animal species (including foxes, domestic cats, ferrets) and, rarely, even humans.

Why Microchip your pet?

Every pet owner has experienced a moment when his or her beloved pet was lost, if only for a moment. These moments can be heart wrenching. Every pet has the potential to roam or run away, especially when disaster strikes. When pets are exposed to fireworks or other frightening stimuli in which they are not accustomed, or when they are simply bored, they will flee. If your pet becomes lost or stolen and you took precautionary steps, you can rest assured knowing you pet will have an excellent chance of returning home, safely. A simple chip the size
of a grain of rice could save your pet's life and save you a lot of heartache.  Please note that it is now law for all animals to have a Microchip.
