Puppy vaccines are EXTREMELY IMPORTANT to stimulate your pet’s immune system to produce antibodies (the “good guys”) to fight the viral antigens (the “bad guys”) like distemper and parvovirus.

IT’S NEVER TOO LATE to begin vaccinating your pet. Your pet’s age will determine their vaccination schedule. Please call us with questions to determine your pet’s vaccination protocol.

RABIES IS REQUIRED BY LAW. State law requires all dogs and cats, 16 weeks or older, to be vaccinated against rabies which lasts for 1 year. A booster is required at that time and will be good for 3 years if administered before due date, otherwise, it will remain a 1 year vaccine.

Noncore Vaccines

Bordetella (which is required for boarding and grooming at our clinic), Lyme disease, Canine Influenza and Rattlesnake vaccines are available. Please discuss your dog’s exposure risk with one of our staff members so we can schedule the appropriate vaccines for your pet.
