Canine and Feline Vaccinations
The health and well being of our beloved family pets should always play an important factor for us in the care of our pets and our responsibility as pet owners.
There are some nasty diseases that our dogs and cats can fall victim to. These can include:
For dogs – Canines
- Parvovirus: causes potentially fatal diarrhoea, particularly in pups and dogs under 2 years of age.
- Distemper: causes coughing, diarrhoea, seizures, loss of balance and blindness.
- Hepatitis: causes vomiting, diarrhoea, abdominal pain and liver damage.
The vaccination against these three diseases is called a C3.
For cats – Felines
- Enteritis: can cause severe disease in unvaccinated kittens between 3 and 5 months of age, causes fever, vomiting, diarrhoea, liver failure and even sudden death.
- Feline Calici Virus: causes sneezing, conjunctivitis, ulcers on the gums and tongue.
- Feline Rhinotrachetitis: causes sneezing, depression, can lead to permanent nasal and sinus infection.
The vaccination against these three diseases is called a F3.
Vaccinations should form part of your annual check up with your vet. Your vet will provide professional advice and will advise you if a vaccination is required for your individual animal. Vaccinations reduce the chance and severity of infections and make recovery quicker.
Introducing your pet to alternate caring options when you are not able to be there, can be a painful process, and one that you will give a lot of thought to. Some owners suffer anxiety about whether to use boarding kennels and catteries and often elect to use a neighbour or get someone to house sit. These options are good alternative that may work for some part of your pet’s life. There will however come a time when friends and family are not available. It is then much more difficult to introduce an older dog or cat to boarding facilities.
With a genuine love of animals and experience to match we organise and develop facilities and activities that allow your dogs to join our play groups several times a day. This experience allows them to exercise and build on their social skills.
Your cat is free to wander safely through our spacious open plan cattery, test themselves on our assault course or just sit around in the sun as cats do.
All pets left in our care will be given all the personal and professional attention that is available to us. Should your pet require any special treatment we shall not hesitate to seek it. Additional charges will be passed on to you, the owner. While we undertake to care for your pet to the best of our ability, we do not accept any responsibility in the event of any untimely occurrence.
Our customers may arrange to use the Puppy Park outside their usual holiday bookings for a cost of $5 per hour, (maximum time 1 hour). You may bring a friend and their dog to play and run around in a few acres of well secured pastures. Introduce them to the Puppy Park and the Dog O’tel.
- How big are the kennels?
A: The kennels are approximately 3.55 x 1.2 metres. Sleeping quarters are 1.3m2.
- How often will my dog be exercised?
A: Dogs are organised into playgroups and are in the exercise area 1-2 times daily. Long stay dogs are exercised in the same manner, but we also include extra exercise in the Puppy Park every few days for an extended romp.
- What happens if my dog or cat is unwell or injured?
A: If we have your vet’s details we will contact your preferred vet in the first instance, however, we will not hesitate to call our vet if your vet details are not provided or your vet is not available. Costs are the responsibility of the owner and forwarded on to them.
- What do you feed and how often?
A. Dogs are fed with a home cooked meal consisting of meat, pasta, rice and high protein kibble. Cats feast on a variety of canned food, chicken wings and raw beef. Dry food is only served as tid-bits. Animals are fed once daily.
- Are you able to administer my pet’s medication while boarding?
A. We will administer your pet’s medication at no charge, depending on the specific individual circumstances, if previously arranged and agreed to by us. All medication needs to be clearly labelled with details including name and dosage requirements. We are unable to administer medication for diabetic dogs or cats.
- Can I bring my pet’s own bedding?
A. Yes. Please clearly make all items. No beanbags or toys accepted. We take no responsibility for loss or damage to your dogs bedding.
