Top Tips to keep exotic pets safe this Halloween
October 24, 2019

Whether your pet is travelling with you or boarding in a pet hotel, our vet Susan Barry has put together some tips for you:

 

 

Before you travel with your pet you will need to ensure that they are microchipped. They will also need a pet passport and a rabies vaccination if they are leaving the country. We can help with all of these things!

A couple of days before you travel, your pet will also need a final health check with our vet, where they will receive a health certificate.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Your pet will need to be up to date with their vaccinations before boarding in kennels or a cattery. Dogs will also need to be covered for canine cough and you will need a vaccination card to show this.

We can provide this for you if you have misplaced yours.

 

 

 

 

 

Your pet will need to be up to date with their parasite treatment before they travel and it is also a good idea to protect them with a treatment if they are boarding in kennels or a cattery.

Parasite treatment comes in the form of spot ons or tablets. Speak with one of our qualified staff members and we can help you to choose the most suitable product for your pets lifestyle.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Travelling with your pet can be stressful and they may need a little help if they are boarding in order to keep them relaxed.

There are a range of products that we can provide to ensure they can cope with these events. So call in to us if you are unsure about what your pet might need.

 

 

 

 

We are always on hand at Palmerstown veterinary hospital to answer your queries and give advice. You can pop in to us or call us on 01 6237044, we are happy to help.

  • Did you know that your pet is always monitored closely by one of our veterinary nurses before, throughout and after surgery 😍 We are also very lucky to have additional monitoring equipment, like our lovely multi-parameter machine! This machine monitors your pets heart rate, respiration rate, blood pressure and temperature....among other things! This provides us with a lot of information and helps us to ensure your pet is even safer when they are under a general anaesthetic 💜 #pets #petsofinstagram #dublinveterinaryclinic #dublinveterinaryhospital #dublinvet #dublinvets #palmerstown #dublin #weloveourjob #weloveourpatients #keepingyourpetssafe #anaesthesia #petanaesthesia
