Did you know that the flu virus can live on things like cups and countertops for up to 24 hours after someone with the virus has touched it? And even if you wash your hands regularly, viruses can still live in them for as long as two hours, making it easy to spread illnesses from person to person without even knowing it. That’s why it’s so important to get vaccinated, whether you’re in Brisbane or somewhere else in Australia. When more people are vaccinated, we all have a better chance of avoiding the negative health effects of flu and other diseases!
The importance of vaccination
It’s important for your pet to be vaccinated for rabies, parvovirus, distemper, leptospirosis, Bordetella bronchiseptica (Kennel Cough), canine influenza virus (H3N2), and the kennel cough bacterium. Pets must be vaccinated against these diseases because they are highly contagious among dogs. Vaccination will not only protect you but also you’re family and other pets that come into contact with your pet. The House Call Vet has been in business since 1995 and we have seen the need for vaccination grow every year as more people realize how important it is.
The different types of vaccinations
The House Call Vet has a range of vaccinations that can protect you from the following diseases: canine distemper, canine parvovirus, canine adenovirus, canine coronavirus, rabies, and leptospirosis. These are all serious diseases that can be fatal if not treated quickly. For example: rabies is an extremely deadly disease that is most commonly transmitted through the saliva of an infected animal. The House Call Vet offers vaccines against these diseases so they will not spread.
There are a number of vaccines available at https://www.thcv.com.au/ for you to protect yourself from different types of infection.
Where to get vaccinated in Brisbane
The House Call Vet is located in the Brisbane CBD, making it easy for you to get in for a vaccine. We can vaccinate your cat or dog without having to worry about their safety since we have our own on-site pet hospital. They offer vaccines for rabies, canine distemper, feline leukemia, bordatella (kennel cough), leptospirosis, parvovirus (canine parvo), coronavirus (canine enteric), tetanus (new law in Queensland) and rabies booster shots. If you’re looking for vaccinations that are not offered at The House Call Vet then call ahead of time so we can make arrangements with one of our many partner clinics.
The benefits of vaccination
There are many benefits that come from vaccinating your pets. One of these is protection from diseases. When you vaccinate your pet, they have a chance at protecting themselves from all sorts of illnesses, as well as protecting you and other animals who come in contact with them. Vaccinations also give animals the best opportunity for a healthy, long life. They can fight off certain diseases that would otherwise be fatal, or sometimes just make their lives more difficult by causing chronic disease or pain. They can also improve the quality of life for our four-legged friends by helping them feel better in general.
The House Call Vet is dedicated to helping pets live healthier and happier lives through vaccination services.
