We finally have incredibly effective, exceptionally safe control mechanisms not only for many viral diseases (vaccines), but also for ticks and fleas and their diseases (Seresto, Advocate, Bravecto, Nexgard and Comfortis). We also have tools to prevent the cases of Spirocerca lupi, a fatal disease of dogs. Our clinic has seen case numbers of this dreaded worm decline from about 90 cases per year to 2 per year.
How? We took our role as advisors and protectors of animal health very seriously and INSISTED our clients put their patients on spirocerca control.
Similarly, we charge the same as other vets, but give all cats the FeLV vaccine. It’s a technically complex issue to do so, and a financially negative strategy, but let me tell you, our clients will never have to ask why their cats have died of a preventable disease. Vaccination, monthly milbemax or advocate, and nexgard, seresto or bravecto will ensure that the only unexpected reason you see your vet is for unpredictable diseases, NOT for illnesses we should never have to deal with in SA. For the rest, there’s medical aid. I’m not here to deal with parvo or distemper (third world diseases), I’m here as your vet to deal with the broken leg, the tumour, the heart failure – first world diseases.

WE FINALLY HAVE INCREDIBLY EFFECTIVE,
EXCEPTIONALLY SAFE CONTROL MECHANISMS NOT ONLY FOR MANY VIRAL DISEASES
(VACCINES), BUT ALSO FOR TICKS AND
FLEAS AND THEIR DISEASES
