The Dog Vaccination Solution
Newborn dogs and puppies aren’t naturally safe from diseases. Without the help of vaccinations, they are highly susceptible to a number of dangerous illnesses. While they do have some antibody security from their mother, this does not last and this natural immunity wears off.
To keep gaps in protection as narrow as possible and to provide optimal protection against disease for the first few months of life,t is recommended that puppies are vaccinated for the first time at around 6 weeks of age with additional immunisations given at 3 to 4 weeks intervals.

Prevention Is Better Than Cure
Even though some formerly common diseases have now become a rare occurrence, vaccination is still highly recommended as these serious disease agents continue to be present in the environment. Taking your dog to the vet for vaccines, boosters, or titers over the course of their life may seem inconvenient, especially if they remain indoors. However, the diseases that inoculations protect us against are deadly and expensive to treat.
Vaccinations have been developed and produced to contain a weak version of the disease that triggers your pet’s body to produce antibodies. If your dog catches the same disease in the future their body an immune system is able to effectively identify and destroy the disease-causing organisms. This reduces the risk of contracting and falling ill with dangerous, life threatening diseases.
All dogs are unique, with a variety of factors that can influence what vaccination is best for your pet. This includes age, breed, gender, environment, family, overall health and risk of exposure. Whether you need an annual booster vaccine or have a puppy who needs their first shots, when you choose The House Call Vet, you can trust that your companion will receive the finest care. We strive to meet your needs for first-class veterinary care in Brisbane with caring, compassion, and commitment!
Core & Non-Core Dog Vaccines
Protect Your Dog Against Fatal Disease
There are a number of different dog vaccinations for a variety of illnesses. It can be confusing to know which vaccinations your pet needs.
Core vaccinations are essential to the health of your pet. Non-core Vaccinations are based on the lifestyle of your pet to protect your pet from diseases common in certain environments, such as kennels. Here is an overview of the diseases that vaccinations will help your pet to avoid.
Canine Distemper is a highly contagious viral disease that affects a dog’s respiratory tract (lungs), gastrointestinal tract (gut) and nervous system (brain).
Infectious canine hepatitis or canine adenovirus is a viral disease spread by contact with infected animals, their stools, urine or saliva. It affects the liver, kidneys and cells lining the blood vessels.
Canine Parvovirus, also known as Cat Flu, is is a very common viral disease that is deadly and usually strikes young puppies. It spreads by infected dogs’ blood, stools or vomit.
Canine Parainfluenza is another infectious viral disease that can be one of the causes of Bordetella Bronchiseptica or “kennel cough”. It affects the respiratory tract and spreads quickly among dogs close to one another.
Rabies is a viral infection that affects the central nervous system and can result in paralysis or death which is why this vaccination is so crucial for your puppy’s health. Sometimes, a titre test is performed to test if your pet has been immunised against rabies if proof of vaccination is needed
