We are passionate about having our patients enjoy their vet visits and so our whole team take a fear free approach to veterinary care. A fear free approach to veterinary care means we not only address the physical wellbeing of our patients, but also their emotional wellbeing.
We are proactive about reducing the stress around veterinary care and will utilise a combination of pheromones, supplements, medications, gentle handling techniques and co-operative care training to provide excellent health care to our patients. The less stressed our patients are, our physical examination will be more thorough, our test results will be more reliable, and patients and their families will be happier to see us.
Preventative care is an important part of keeping our pets healthy and monitoring their health overtime. It is often easier to prevent illness than treat it once it has taken hold.
Our standard dog vaccination is a C5 vaccination which will provide protection against parvovirus, distemper, hepatitis, bordetella and parainfluenza (kennel cough). We can advise you on whether or not the leptospirosis vaccination is required for your pet. This vaccination is available at an additional cost.
Our standard vaccination for cats is an F3 vaccination which will provide protection against panleukopaenia virus(feline enteritis), herpesvirus (cat flu) and calicivirus (cat flu). Depending on your cats risk profile we may also recommend vaccination against Feline Aids (FIV vaccination). This vaccination is available at an additional cost.
Fear Free In Home Vaccinations
Veterinary visit with one of our Fear Free Certified Veterinarians, patient history including relevant medical history, physical examination (depending on patient anxiety level), patient assessment, adaptil bandana (dogs only), preventative care recommendations, vaccination, vaccination certificate, health check certificate and discussion on ways to help reduce anxiety around veterinary visits and references regarding co-operative care training and local force free dog trainers.
If your pet is too fearful to be vaccinated during this visit, we may recommend that your pet is prescribed a pre-visit pharmaceutical (situational anxiety medication) to help them better cope with their vet visit and the injection. You will be charged for a consultation fee $110 plus any required medication or prescriptions, and then we will reschedule the vaccination visit for another time.
