Annual Vaccination, De worm, Heartworm & License
Dear Friends – let me Wish You All – Happy New Year and a Prosperous Chinese New Year.

It is this time of the year that all dog owners will have to renew their dog license. It is imperative that all dogs have a license. If there is any problem encountered with the local authorities do officially write to MSAVA, providing you personal details – Name,IC No, Address, Tel/Fax/Mobile Nos. These details are important to enable us to forward your complain to the relevant authorities. Also pls include photocopies of the document rejected. The MSAVA address is P.O. Box 12697, 50786 – Kuala Lumpur

Annual Vaccination and de worm is important for pets (Cats, Dogs & Ferrets) In Dogs the commonly used vaccine is the 9 in 1, which covers nine infectious diseases. The old 6 in 1 is still available.

In Cat’s it is advisable to have them vaccinated against Feline Leukaemia and Feline Aids as the disease is fast becoming endemic in our country. (FeLV & FIV).

De worm should be done twice yearly for all pets. Dog owners please note that de worm and Heartworm treatment are different. If you are using Heartworm tabs then the de worm is included into the dosage. Those using the SR12 injection u are advised to have the pets de wormed separately.

Re: Annual Vaccination, De worm, Heartworm & License
Hi, Dr. Clement.
My family and I adopted a mixed terrier dog, Sweetie after her owner (expatriate) and family left Malaysia for next job posting in another country. SXweetie is 7 or 8 years old.

We got Sweetie's health passport and advised by the previous owner that, we take Sweetie for her annual check-up and vaccination, which is due this coming September. Apart from that, we understand that there is no need to visit vet, unless Sweetie is not well and require medical attention.

I just heard from my friend about heartworm and kind of concerned because I do not know anything about this. Is this heartworm vaccination included during Sweetie's annual vaccination? And how do we know if Sweetie need to go for this vaccination or take tablets as prevention?

We are living near Wangsa Maju and would like to know where to apply dog license and how to apply..perhaps, there is a website on this for more info.

Please advise.

Thank you.
