Essential (and easy) protection for your pet

Vaccinations are contentious, with strong opinions on both sides of the debate.

We will never dismiss someone’s opinion, and are always happy to discuss the pros and cons on a patient by patient basis. However; we strongly believe that we must protect our patients to the best of our ability, whilst minimising the number of vaccines that they receive. Therefore, at Frankston Heights Veterinary Centre, we took our lead from the World Small Animal Veterinary Association’s Vaccination Guideline Group*. We will give our pets what vaccines they need, but no more. And we will time the vaccines to have minimum impact on them.

We advocate a “triennial vaccination programme” for both dogs and cats. This means that they get a “full” vaccine every third year, with a “partial” vaccine during the in-between years.

*WSAVA’s Vaccination Guideline Group advises that “core vaccines are administered to all animals to protect them against severe life-threatening diseases with a global distribution” with “non-core vaccines required by those animals at risk of contracting specific infections”

"Lovely Caring People"

 

We needed a vet urgently after being told by our Mount Eliza vet of 20 years that we had to wait 3 hours! We were seen immediately here.  A terrible day made just that bit easier because of these lovely caring people.  Thank you!

"I Highly Recommend Frankston Heights Vet Clinic"

 

I have been attending Frankston Heights Vet Clinic for many many years – Why? Because their level of service, their level of care and the clinic itself is just of the highest grade. The animals’ welfare is always their first priority – not the money side of things. I highly recommend the Frankston Heights Vet Clinic.

"Such Good Staff"

 

Such good staff. Called around with inquiries when my pup was getting get vaccinations as I wasn't happy with the service of the vet I was going to, and this was the only vet clinic who happily answered all my questions no matter how stupid they were.

"The Best Care At The Best Price"

 

Thank you Frankston Heights vet clinic for helping our whippet Zelda with her leg injury at such short notice and on Christmas Eve. Our other whippets are patients of your clinic too and we always feel they're getting the best care and at the best price also.
