Our team continues to be here for you and your cherished pets. We are OPEN and are now able to provide a wide range of services. To learn more about the changes we have implemented in response to COVID-19 and what to expect during your next visit, click here.
The puppy shot series usually starts between eight weeks of age, with new vaccines and boosters given every four weeks until the puppy is at least sixteen weeks old. A discussion with your vet will help determine the best vaccines and schedule for your puppy.
Distemper/Adenovirus/Parvovirus/Para-influenza, Lyme, Bordetella, Leptospirosis and Rabies.
Why is it important to vaccinate your puppy?
Your puppy’s initial protection comes from their mother through special milk produced in the first few days of life. As that protection wears off, we need to vaccinate to train their immune system against certain preventable diseases. Vaccines are a very effective way to keep your young puppy safe from serious and potentially deadly viruses.
At what age should I bring my puppy for their vaccinations?
Your puppy should come in at eight weeks for their first vaccines.
How should I prepare my puppy for their first vaccination visit?
Bring all documentation and medical history that you have on the puppy.
How much do puppy vaccinations cost?
When you come in for your first visit with your puppy, the veterinarian can provide you with a complete treatment plan for the first few visits. Please call if you would like a quote for the initial puppy visit.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 25, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
