Sterilisations

Sterilisation of pets is important for medical as well as social reasons. A sterilised pet tends to be less likely to get run over due to roaming the streets and less likely to run away. Sterilized pets won’t produce a litter and are less aggressive if the procedure is done at an early enough age. These animals will have likely fewer medical problems later in life as well. These medical problems include uterine infection or ovarian and mammary cancer in female pets and testicular cancer or prostatic disease in male pets.

Vaccinations

Florida Veterinary Hospital provides initial and annual vaccination for both your feline friends and canine companions. Please see the recommended vaccination schedule included:

DOGS (canine) CATS (feline)

South Africa has a high incidence of infectious diseases such as Canine Parvo Virus (Cat-flu), Distemper and Rabies. A proper vaccination protocol is essential. Too often puppies don’t get a full course of vaccinations and then end up with Parvo, an often fatal disease.

Deworming:

Regular deworming is essential in puppies as these parasites can affect health and growth.

Microchipping:

Microchipping is advised for animals so that should they leave your property they can be identified and returned safely.
