It is essential to vaccinate your pet companion to provide their immune system with the defence to fight off diseases. From puppies to adult dogs, vaccination is highly recommended to help them strengthen their immune system against diseases such as Rabies, Parvovirus, and Distemper. A regular schedule is recommended at 8, 12, and 16 weeks of age. The schedule of vaccinations can vary for each patient, so be sure to ask our team what the best schedule is for your pet. For more information, feel free to call us at 519-360-4508.
What vaccinations do you provide to new puppies?
The vaccinations your puppy will receive are dependent on age and where they are in their booster series. At 8 weeks of age, your puppy will receive the first booster of Distemper, Adenovirus, and Parvovirus. A second and third booster is recommended at 12 and 16 weeks of age. They will also receive their first Rabies vaccination between 12 and 16 weeks of age.
What types of vaccinations do you offer for adult dogs?
We offer a variety of vaccinations. Core vaccinations include Rabies, Distemper, Adenovirus, Parainfluenza, and Parvovirus. Non-core or optional vaccinations offered are Lyme, Leptospirosis, and Bordetella. Remember to ask about our optional vaccines at your dog's annual examination.
Is there a schedule for how often a dog should be vaccinated?
Our veterinary team recommends vaccinating yearly. At some point in your adult dog's life, they may be available for a rotational schedule of vaccinations. If this is an option, one of our staff members will discuss this with you.
