Preventative animal care

What you need to be doing for your pet.


Vaccines prevent life threatening disease.

We recommend puppies and kittens receive 3 vaccines, ideally at 8, 12 and 16 weeks of age.

A 12 month booster is then given (when the dog/ cat is 16 months of age).  Dogs can be given some of their vaccinations on a 3 yearly interval.
Terrigal Vet recommend puppies and kittens receive three vaccines with annual boosters


Paralysis ticks are potentially fatal.

There are highly effective monthly and 3 monthly preventative tablets for dogs.

For our feline friends there are collars that offer 4 months prevention against ticks, as well as monthly and 3 monthly spot-on treatments available. 
Terrigal Vet recommends tick preventative for dogs and cats of the Central Coast as paralysis ticks are potentially fatal


Heartworm is spread by mosquitoes and is a risk to dogs.

Prevention is via annual or monthly medication.
Mosiquitoes are all over the Central Coast and can spread heartworm in dogs. Terrigal Vet recommend preventative medication.

Intestinal Worms

Puppies and kittens < 12 weeks should be wormed fortnightly and those aged 3-6 months, monthly. 

Adults should be wormed every 3 months.
Terrigal Vet recommends preventative treatment for intestinal worms for puppies, kittens and adult dogs and cats
