VACCINATION

Regular vaccination of pets is of great importance in preventing difficult infectious diseases that often can have fatal results. These diseases affect both the old and the young animals. Annual vaccination is also an opportunity to make a complete clinical examination to detect potential health problems. The first part of the vaccination is usually done in the first seven to eight weeks in the life of the puppy (49 -56 day), although protection against certain diseases can be given earlier if necessary, in case of any suspicious symptoms noticed by the breeder. The vaccines have indications of the target diseases for which immunization is carried out for:

D-canine distemper virus - shtenechak-viral infection that causes respiratory, digestive and neurological manifestations, often with fatal outcome.
X-the dog-hepatitis - a viral infection caused by two similar viruses that attack the liver.
R-parvoviroza - a common viral infection which attacks the mucous membrane of the intestinal tract.
Pi-virus parainfluence- a viral infection which with the Hepatitis A virus can cause infection of the upper respiratory tract.
Cv-corona virus-like - viral infection similar to parovirosis, but not as fatal.
L-leptospiroza a bacterial infection that attacks the kidneys. It is very important to know that this is transmittable to humans.
The vaccination of the cats is after the kitten turn 2 months, and revaccination are given after one month. Later, once a year regular revaccination is performed.

Diseases for which cats get vaccination are:
Herpes virus – causes rino traheitis, infection of the upper respiratory tract.
Calili virus - leads to respiratory infections and acute arthritis.
Panleukopenia – a lethal viral disease for cats – infective entheritis with high percent of fatality.
Chlamidia Psittaci-bakterisno disease, which leads to infections of the respiratory tract. With cats can be found in the mucous membrane of the digestive and reproductive tract.


ENDOPARASITHES (treatment against intestinal parasites)

Health significance to humans: some internal parasites (eg. ehinokokoza) can be transmitted to people and lead to very serious health problems. We recommend a protocol for endoparasithe treatment:

  •  treatment for small dogs and kitten 15 - 20 days old
  • treatment with 35-40 days old animals
  • to the 6 th month the treatment is repeated every 40 - 60 days.
  • the adult pets should be treated every three months/four times during the year


Cleansing intestinal parasites - There are medications which are effective both against intestinal worms and against tapeworm. If the dog is regularly treated against these parasites, the risk almost does not exist. Regular cleaning of the parasites is carried out with tablets given orally, and the dosage depends on the age and weight of the pet.


Small dogs


0,5 - 2kg: ¼ pill

2 - 5kg: ½ pill

5 to 10 kg: 1 pill


Medium Dogs:


10 to 20 kg: pills

20 to 30 kg: 3 pills


Big Dogs:


30 to 40 kg: 4 pills


ECTOPARASITHES (fleas, lice and ticks)

Fleas can cause blood loss and anemia with small puppies and kitten.

Ticks are parasites that suck blood. They drill the skin of your pet and fixate which complicates their removal. In Europe there is risk of several diseases that are transmitted by ticks and they are:

  •  lajm disease
  • erlihioza
  • babeziozi

With regular use of quality means and according to the manufacturer's manual to prevent infestations of fleas and ticks, You contribute to the health of your pet. Some diseases transmitted by fleas and ticks can be lethal and that is why the preventive is much safer than the treatment.

Surgery – what you need to know about surgery on Your pet

In our veterinary clinic we perform various surgical interventions. We make operations from those considered a routine in veterinary practice such as sterilization, castration, Caesarean section, a herniated disc and also highly specific surgery. Our goal is to unite all services in ambulance diagnostics and treatment, surgical treatment and in close care with rehabilitation of the pet. There are many reasons why your pet may be subject to surgery. It is understandable why many pet owners have a fear or discomfort when their pet needs to undergo surgery. But you should bear in mind that sometimes surgery is the only therapeutic solution for the recovery and treatment of your pet. Whether it is a preventive or therapeutic surgery, your pet will go through a protocol, for which you as an owner will be introduced. After the surgery there is post-operative care for each patient until it becomes conscious and its vital signs and functions are stabilized. The owner of the animal receives detailed instructions about the care and behavior of the pet at home.

Complete dermatological diagnosis

Skin diseases are often found in small practice. Some of them can be transmitted to people, some may be persistent and some even fatal for the animal. Because of this it is especially important to be recognized on time and be treated in appropriate way. The skin is the first barrier and protection against microorganisms, harmful agents and toxins. The skin is the first indicator for the health of the animal. In veterinary practice skin problems may occupy from 25% to 35 % from the total number of patients.

  •  Fleas
  • Demodikoza
  • Problems with various insects
  • Ear scabies
  • Scabies in cats and dogs

DENTAL INTERVENTION

  •  Ultrasound removal of dental calculus
  • Extracting teeth
  • Teeth polishing


Accumulation of dental calculus presents a serious health problem both in dogs and cats. Deposits of dental calculus easily suppress the gum, the tooth roots become exposed, it comes to the emergence of "pockets" in the gum, parandentosis and eventually fall off the teeth. Dental calculus along with the bacteria that are found in it are source of infection for the pet. Small breeds of dogs and Persian cats are particularly subject to this problem. Accumulation of dental calculus is very unpleasant for the owner because of the unpleasant smell that spreads out from the mouth of the pet. Once created, dental calculus can be removed only by professional intervention. We recommend dental calculus removal using ultrasound apparatus. After dental calculus extraction it is important to polish the teeth since it is a way to slow down the process of re-accumulation of dental calculus.

Ultrasound-Diagnosis

Ultrasound application in veterinary practice is a contemporary diagnosis tool used to receive full information on the health of the patient and establish the correct diagnosis. Examination with ultrasound is safe, and allows us to obtain information about the internal structure of organs in the thoracic cavity (primarily the heart) and organs in the abdomen (liver, kidneys, digestive tract, reproductive tract).
