Vaccinations are a crucial part of your pet’s health. Some of the most serious diseases, which can be fatal, can be prevented by simple vaccination. We believe in tailoring your pet’s vaccinations to their individual lifestyles. Rabies is the vaccine required by law, but other vaccinations will be discussed during the visit.
What types of vaccinations do you offer for adult dogs?
The standard, or core, vaccines are Rabies and the Distemper-Adenovirus-Parvovirus combination. These are considered essential for your pet’s health. Additional (non-core) vaccinations include coverage for Bordetella (kennel cough), Leptospirosis, and Lyme diseases.
Is there a schedule for how often to vaccinate a dog?
After the initial series of vaccines, the core vaccines are valid for a 3-year period. The non-core vaccinations are considered to be annual vaccines being done yearly. Again, not all pets need the additional vaccines, and we can choose how to protect your pet with your guidance best.
Why is it important to vaccinate your dog?
Vaccinations are an easy way to keep your pet safe, as well as other pets in the community. By establishing building up your pet’s immune system, it can protect them from contagious illnesses that may be fatal. Additionally, it can save you on costs of treatment should they contract one of these diseases.
How much do dog vaccinations cost?
Vaccinations are reasonably priced and are always given after an exam to ensure your pet is healthy enough to receive them. The physical exam is a necessary part of your pet’s health before vaccination, and many problems can be discovered during this visit. Please call us to review what your pet is due for, and we can give you an estimate over the phone.
