Welcome to Moruya Veterinary Hospital

 

Moruya Veterinary Hospital is a mixed rural practice that operates a modern facility with up-to-date veterinary care. The modern architecturally designed state of the art veterinary facility is dedicated to serving the needs of the owners and animals of Moruya, the Eurobodalla Shire and South Coast NSW. The Hospital has provided veterinary care to domestic pets, production farm animals, and horses for 40 years.

Our service is available 24/7 with a veterinarian on call 365 days of the year. Our animal hospital offers both routine and emergency services in the clinic or on property. We also stock a great range of high quality pet food, drenches and pet accessories.

Reminder to all clients

If a visit to the vet is needed please phone 4474 2532 for a suitable appointment time. We try our best to be available when appointments have been made, however emergency treatments will take preference.

Clients coming into the hospital with cats are required for safety reasons to have their cat securely contained within a cage or similar device. Also, all dogs must be on a leash and under control by an adult. If possible, take your dog for a short walk before entering the waiting room to avoid those embarrassing moments which require the use of a mop.

We also ask that leads and unnecessary accessories and blankets are not left with animals that are admitted to the hospital. We have quite a large lost property box full of items that have not gone home with patients.

Attention - Rabbit owners

Rabbit Haemorrhagic disease

virus 1 K5 release

Rabbit haemorrhagic disease virus (RHDV) 1 K5 will be released nationally in the first week of March 2017.  This virus is being released as a biocontrol measure to manage wild European rabbits.   RHDV1 K5 is not a new virus, it is a Korean variant of the existing virus already widespread in Australia that was released in 1996.  RHDV1s, including RHDV1 K5 are strongly species specific viruses, affecting only lagomorphs, and in particular the European rabbit.  They are not known to cause disease in any other Australian animal species.

A study completed by the NSW Department of Primary Industries showed that the currently available vaccine is effective against RHDV1 K5.

It is recommended all healthy domestic rabbits are vaccinated against RHVD1.

The Australian Veterinary Association recommends that rabbits are vaccinated against RHDV1 as follows:

* Kittens: 4, 8, 12 weeks of age, then 6 monthly for life

*  Adults: 2 vaccinations 1 month apart, then 6 monthly for life.

Biosecurity Measures

- Prevent direct and indirect contact between domestic and wild rabbits.

- Avoid cutting grass and feeding it to rabbits if there is the risk of contamination from wild rabbits.

- Wash hands, with warm soapy water between handling rabbits.

- Good insect control is also important and will help reduce the risks of introduction of both RHDV and myxomatosis.  Insect control could include insect proofing the hutch or keeping the rabbits indoors.

- Infected rabbits should be isolated and disposed of in a manner that will minimise environmental contamination.

- All cages and equipment should be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected.  Disinfectants that can be used to decontaminate  any equipment include 10% bleach, 10% sodium hydroxide, or parvocide disinfectants . 

Clinical signs of RHDV1 K5

In most adults rabbits the disease progresses rapidly from fever and lethargy to sudden death within 48-72 hours of infection.  The incubation period for the RHDV is between one to three days.  Most rabbits will show nosigns of external symptoms of RHD.

The disease causes acute liver damage with resultant blood clotting abnormalities.  Death occurs due to obstruction of blood supply in vital orangs and/or internal haemorrhages.  RHD has a mortality rate of 70 to 90% in susceptible rabbits
