Sometimes our furry friends become unwell or do something that just isn’t quite normal for them. At times like this it’s good to know you can ring Jerrabomberra Veterinary Hospital and we can make a time to see your pet. Usually we can see them within 48hrs for non urgent matters and in cases of emergencies then we can organize to have them seen straight away.
Our examinations are comprehensive with a focus on the area of concern. If there are multiple issues we also have the availability of an extended consultation to allow for all of these issues to be addressed. Please discuss your concerns with our receptionists who will book a consultation that is appropriate for you and your pet.
All pets should be vaccinated to prevent against potentially fatal diseases. Here at KVH we recommend the vaccination of dogs against distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus and ‘canine cough’ (Bordetella and Parainfluenza). We use a 3 year combined vaccine for parvovirus, distemper and hepatitis, and a yearly vaccine against ‘canine cough’.
For our cats we recommend a standard annual vaccine against feline enteritis, rhinotracheitis and panleukopenia virus. If your cat goes outside, then we recommend the Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV, feline aids) vaccination. FIV is spread primarily through fighting.
We recommend vaccinating rabbits annually against Calicivirus. Unfortunately there is no vaccination in Australia available against the Myxomatosis virus.
Our consultations for vaccination include a health check where we will sure your pet is maintained at the highest standard of health.
