Best bet is to go into a local vets and ask. Our dog just got to us today! The wife (who was a Veterinary Nurse in the UK) found it simpler to go in and ask than try to work it out. A lot of the information will depend in where you are living in Australia as well!!

Once he has been tomorrow we can let you know what he got etc?

For us in Queensland I think heart work was important as it can be passed by mossies apparently...so give them a call...they dont bite...unlike some animals

Also think metacam is available over here if it is pain relief for dogs....

Good luck! Will be great once your dog is with you!

Cheers
Richard

Hey,

Byron was at the Vets today. Heartworm Injection was the only thing he really needed as all other vaccinations are uptodate for coming here! Also bought some tick and flee worm treatment as the ticks can paralyse over here! Other than that he got a good bath as he was stinky from the kennels!!

Hope this helps!
Richard

Hiya
We are on the sunny coast and a friend of mine has to use metacam, it is available but very expensive $150 a bottle. If u can find it somewhere online cheaper.

Best to go register at a vets and ask them what he'll need it'll depend on where you are as well. When they come over from UK they are vacinnated of course but you'll need heart worm, ours have it by jab once per year. The paralysis tick isn't nice but we don't have it in our area - your vet will know. We never had fleas in UK but have them couple of times per year now but again one of the spot on's from vets will sort them monthly during warmer months. Ask your vet what is about/hazards to your dog - cane toads/snakes/ticks and act on it at home - good housekeeping, keeping grass short and no where for snakes to hide will all help - Aussies seem to have an outside mentallity for dogs which doesn't help with snakes etc/ours are inside when we are at work and not in acreage without us being there with them.

Have fun and enjoy Oz

Whatever you do, can you please keep your smelly dog away from the children and the nice parks.

don't understand why dogs appear to have the run of the parks. Children come first. Dogs should just be kept on their own parks, or in the house.

Hope you are one of the careful owners that picks up the crap after them.

By the way, I am not a dog lover.

I never understand why humans take so much time to look after themselves in the toilet, yet are happy to take mingin animals into their home that don't have any cleanliness after doing the toilet. Yet the animals climb all over them ? If a human goes to the toilet and then comes back into a room without anything on and climbs all over you, is it really that nice ?

And then why do dog owners look at people strangely when their dogs approach non-dog-loving people with distain.

By the way, don't care about looking after your dog, just keep it away from the children, it is the kids that count in this world, not the minging dogs.
