◾C7 vaccination - Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus, Bordatella, Parainfluenza, Leptospirosis & Coronavirus.
It is important to remember that vaccinations do not give immediate protection. We recommend keeping your pup away from other dogs or areas where dogs may have been until 2 weeks after the third booster vaccination. Yearly boosters are vital to maintain protection against these diseases.
Heartworm prevention - Dogs and cats in Central Queensland could be at risk of heartworm (a disease spread by mosquitoes) if prevention is not regularly administered. Heartworm disease will shorten your dog or cats lifespan.
Heartworm protection should begin at 12 weeks of age and should be continued for life. Options for dogs are a daily tablet, monthly preparation by tablet or spot-on treatment or a yearly injection for prevention of heartworm disease in dogs.
Cats have only monthly protection available in tablet or spot-on treatments.

Our vaccination protocol is as follows:
◾6-8 Weeks- F4 vaccination
◾10-12 Weeks- F4 vaccination
◾14-16 Weeks- F4 vaccination
◾Annual Booster
Vaccinations offered at Torenbeek Vet Clinic are;
◾F3 vaccination- Calicivirus, Panleukopaenia, Rhinotrachetis (herpes virus)
◾F4 vaccination- Calicivirus, Panleukopaenia, Rhinotrachetis (herpes virus) & Chlamydia
◾FIV vaccination - Feline Immunodeficiency Virus
The viruses covered in these vaccinations are highly infectious. Cat flu is a troublesome and debilitating disease with fatalities usually confined to young kittens and old cats. Feline Enteritis can be a very acute disease causing sudden death in adult cats as well as kittens.
Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV or Feline AIDS) causes a potentially fatal viral disease that interferes with a cat's immune system. This vaccine is recommended if your cat is going to be let outside. FIV is spread by saliva, usually during a cat fight. Since there is no cure for FIV, vaccination is their only protection.
FIV vaccines can be given from eight weeks of age and they require three doses at 2-4 week intervals. Your cat will require a yearly booster thereafter for protection against FIV.
