At Nepean Mobile Vet, we offer:
Our preferred vaccination for dogs is the C5. This helps to protect against Parvovirus, Distemper, Infectious Hepatitis, Bordatella and Parainfluenza. While puppies should be vaccinated three times from 6 weeks of age, then given an annual booster 12 months after their last puppy vaccination, for adult dogs we use a vaccine that is registered to be given as little as once every 3 years for Parvovirus, Distemper and Hepatitis. However, the Bordatella and Parainfluenza portion of the vaccine still needs to be given annually, providing an opportunity for an annual health check for your dog.
We recommend the F3 vaccination for cats. This helps to protect against Herpes virus, Calicivirus and Panleukopaenia. It is recommended that once your kitten has received its appropriate kitten vaccinations (3 vaccinations, given 4 weeks apart from 8 weeks of age), it receives a booster vaccination annually, also providing an opportunity for an annual health check. We also offer and recommend FIV vaccination for cats spending time outdoors. This important vaccine helps protect against Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, which is spread by cats fighting, and can be devastating.
It is a legal requirement of pet ownership in NSW that all cats and dogs be microchipped by 12 weeks of age (younger if sold). The microchip is approximately the size of a grain of rice, and is inserted under the skin over the shoulder blades. It is an important step to ensure that if your pet becomes lost, whoever finds them can identify them and help get them back to you!

General Health Checks and Sick/Injured Pet Consultations:
If your pet is sick or injured or you would just like a health check performed, we can come to you. We can help with arthritis, allergies and other skin ailments, injuries and lameness, and many more common complaints of dogs and cats.
At Nepean Mobile Vet, we understand that saying goodbye to a beloved pet can be a very difficult task for any family. We also offer euthanasia services in the comfort of your own home, away from the stress of a busy clinic waiting room, while allowing your pet to experience its final moments in the peace of its familiar surroundings. We can also assist with a variety of aftercare arrangements.
Please note that due to legislation surrounding mobile veterinary practice, we are unable to perform any procedure that requires a general anaesthetic, including routine desexing. Should the need for such a procedure arise however, we would be more than happy to discuss the options you have available to you.
