Vaccination has revolutionised control of infectious disease in our pets. It is essential that all pets are adequately vaccinated to help protect the pet population as a whole. Responsible pet care requires puppies to be given their initial course of vaccinations, but this cannot protect them for the rest of their lives. Adult dogs require regular vaccination to maintain immunity against disease
At North Maclean Family Vet, we use either a C4 or a C5 vaccine.
A C4 vaccine provides immunity against Parvovirus, Distemper Virus, Infectious Canine Hepatitis and one component of Canine Cough.
The cost of this vaccination and health check is $80.90.
A C5 vaccine provides immunity against Parvovirus, Distemper Virus, Infectious Canine Hepatitis and two components of Canine Cough.
The cost of this vaccination and health check is $100.05.
Canine coronavirus is another contagious virus and causes depression, loss of appetite, vomiting and diarrhoea especially in young dogs. Diarrhoea may last for several days in some cases. Although most dogs will recover with treatment, coronavirus has the potential to be fatal, especially if other infectious agents such as parvovirus are present.
