There are many preventative health products on the market, and it can become quite confusing.  Some cover multiple conditions and doses vary depending upon the product. 

Advocate is a topical treatment applied between the shoulder blades for the treatment and prevention of fleas, heartworm and intestinal worms. By treating fleas, you are reducing the incidence of flea allergy dermatitis and preventing heartworm infection. Advocate also provides treatment and control of roundworm, hookworms, whipworm, sarcoptic mange, ear mites and lice.

For the month of December at the Greensborough and Rosanna Veterinary Clinics we can offer a $25 discount on all 6-month packs of Advocate. 

This reduces the cost of Advocate 6-month packet sizes to:

Cats <4kg            $72            Cats >4kg            $77

Dogs 4-10kg        $100          Dogs 10-25kg     $110

Dogs >25kg         $122

Fleas are still prevalent in the cooler weather due to heating in our homes. This is an ideal breeding environment, hence the need to use flea control for all animals in the family, all year round, to maintain a free flea environment.

Don’t forget we also run an Advocate loyalty card all year round. Purchase 12 months of the same size Advocate from us, over any period and receive a 3-month bonus pack.

During September:

Purchase a 3-month packet and receive a bonus 1 month = 4 months

Purchase a 6-month packet and receive a bonus 2 months doses = 8 months

This offer is for cats only and while stocks last.

With holidays almost upon us, it is important to check if you will be travelling to a high-risk tick area and require tick prevention treatment.

The paralysis tick (Ixodes holocyclus) is a dangerous parasite that affects both humans and pets along the east coast of Australia. In humans, it causes a severe local skin irritation. In pets it can cause paralysis, vomiting, breathing difficulty and death.

The Eastern paralysis tick are travelling to Melbourne by hitching a ride on pets, people or belongings that have visited these infested areas.  Ticks are known as “deadly, blood-sucking critters” which is an ideal description.  They like to live in bushy, native terrain and long grass.
