VACCINATIONS & MICROXHIPPING
Protect your pet against many life-threatening diseases by vaccinating annually. We embrace modern vaccination protocols to ensure that your pet has the protection they need, whilst ensuring we do not vaccinate more often than is necessary. Speak to your local team about all the benefits of vaccination and the range of vaccinations we offer at an affordable price.
At Star Veterinary Clinic we strongly recommend that your dog be vaccinated against the following:
Bordetella (Kennel cough (KC)
DHPPi/L - Vaccines against, Distemper, Hepatitis (Adenovirus). Parvo-viruses, Parainfluenza and Leptospirosis.
Rabies virus is mandatory and is required to be given early.
A microchip is a permanent method of electronic identification. The chip itself is very small – about the size of a grain of rice – and is implanted subcutaneously (just under the skin) between the shoulder blades at the back of your pet's neck. Each chip has a unique number that is detected using a microchip scanner.
Microchipping is mandatory for municipality registration.
Deworming your dog
Worms: not the most pleasant subject. And yet it is important to keep an eye on these parasites, especially if you are a dog owner. Dogs can be greatly affected by worms. This makes deworming your dog an absolute necessity!
Worms are nasty parasites that can cause chronic gastrointestinal problems. This is why it is important to deworm your dog regularly. This contributes to your dog’s health. Puppies that are not dewormed may get ill and suffer from growth retardation. In addition, some worms can infect both humans and dogs.
You can deworm your dog preventively. It is recommended to start doing this at a young age. It is recommended to deworm dogs older than six months four times a year.
Various deworming agents are available. Some varieties are suitable for pups, others are not. The vet can help you pick the right one.
