Vaccination updates and effective parasitic control- updates for 2015

Leptospirosis is a potentially fatal disease of which we see a few cases every year. It is also a disease which can affect humans (Weil's Disease). The disease is spread by rodents who live alongside slow moving water and pets coming into contact with urine from previously infected dogs. Fortunately there is a new improved vaccination known as Lepto 4 which gives better protection against the disease. When you bring your dog in for his or her annual health check and vaccination you will be offerred the new Lepto 4 vaccination with annual booster and your pet will need to come back four weeks later for a further Lepto 4 booster which a nurse will carry out, at no additional cost. The new vaccination regime is suitable for all puppies  who will need three visits to the surgery starting from 8 weeks old. For further information please ask one of the vets when you get your annual vaccination reminder.

The most effective treatments for fleas and worms can only be prescribed by your vet. We have a full range of flea and worm products suitable for the activities and lifestyle of your cats and dogs. Lungworm is increasingly a problem for dogs which is not necessarily be treated by all products. Please discuss the correct  parasitic control products for your pet with one of our vets when your pet comes in for its annual health check and vaccination so that we can prescribe the most effective treatments for your pets lifestyle. Alternatively please phone the surgery for advice. It may be necessary for a vet to see your pet if you have not visited the surgery recently to ensure that you receive the best advice.
