Pets, like people, can be protected from some diseases by vaccination. Vaccines are one of the most important and effective ways to prevent infectious diseases. Many devastating diseases, such as rabies and canine distemper are now completely preventable with the use of an appropriate vaccination.
Vaccinations are started when the animal is young with a course of injections, and then repeated regularly throughout the pet’s life. Also, it is worth bearing in mind that each time you bring your pet for vaccination, they will be examined from head to tail, therefore making sure that your pet is in tip top condition.
Many factors are taken into consideration when establishing a pet’s vaccination plan. Riverview vets will tailor a program of vaccinations to help your pet maintain a lifetime of infectious disease protection.

Regular Worm and Flea Treatments
Our pets, like us, are sociable creatures. The downside of this can be exposure to internal and external parasites. The simplest and most effective way to treat and prevent infestation is to regularly use the correct product. Call into any Riverview branch and the nurse or vet will be able to advise which of the many options available would suit your pet.
Despite the fact, that both cats and dogs survived for many centuries on scraps, a healthy diet suited to their individual health needs, age, breed and sex enables them to live a healthy and happy life. All Riverview clinics stock a range of specialist and generic foods and supplements, all of which the nurses and vets will be happy to talk through with you so that you can make the best choice for you and your pet.
