Cat, Rabbit and Dog Vaccinations in Glen Waverley


Happy pets after our cat and puppy vaccinations in the Wantirna area

At Glenvale Veterinary Clinic in Glen Waverley, we offer a wide range of vaccinations for pets. Prevention is always the best strategy when it comes to caring for your precious animal. Some diseases that can infect our pets are sufficiently serious and widespread that protection by vaccination is recommended. These are mainly viral diseases where currently no suitable antiviral medicines are available.

Dogs, cats and rabbits have vaccines available to protect them against harmful diseases.

A series of vaccines are given to puppies and kittens starting at 6-8 weeks of age and rabbits have a single start vaccination at 10 weeks.

The F3 vaccine is then given yearly. If your cat is spending time outside then Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (cat aids) vaccine is also recommended.

Feline Leukaemia and chlamydia vaccines may be useful in some cat breeding establishments.

Rabbit Vaccinations

10 weeks              Calicivirus

This is given annually.

Myxomatosis vaccine is not available currently in Australia. It is spread by mosquitoes and fleas and the best protection comes from fly wire screens around hutches and being kept indoors.

Vaccinations given to your pet may have some side effects which are similar to those experienced by humans when we are vaccinated. Drowsiness and some soreness at the site of the injection are the most common and last only a few hours. More serious side effects are rare (collapse, severe pain, vomiting) and should be treated immediately.
