Preventative Health Care

Prevention is always better than cure. At Selwyn Veterinary Centre we aim to prevent disease and promote good health.

We promote routine vaccinations in dogs, cats and rabbits.

Important infectious diseases your dog can be protected against in NZ include – Parvovirus, Distemper, Infectious canine hepatitis, Leptospirosis and kennel cough.

Diseases your cat can be protected against in NZ include – Feline panleukopaenia, Cat flu (feline respiratory disease) and FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus).

Rabbits should also be vaccinated against Rabbit Calicivirus (Viral haemorrhagic disease), which is a highly infectious and mostly fatal disease.

Vaccination and immunity is widely researched – protocols and vaccines are constantly updated. Our vets will be able to advise you on the best vaccination type and regime to suit your pets’ needs.

Preventative health care includes regular deworming, flea, tick and mite prevention, come speak to our lovely staff and we’ll be able to advise you on which product best suits your pet.
