We remain open to provide care for your pets. We are following the direction of government and regulatory authorities and have implemented hospital and visit protocols to keep both you and our team safe. For regular updates on our hours and visit protocols, please follow our social media platforms.
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.
Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members.
The following changes are effective as of Thursday, March 26, 2020:
1. We are currently operating a "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us at 604-463-7100. We will bring your pet into the hospital for an examination with the veterinarian. The veterinarian will then call you to discuss our recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a technician will return your pet to your car and take care of any needed medications and payment.
2. We are continuing to accept appointments for urgent or sick pets, as well as time-sensitive puppy/kitten vaccinations. All other services will be scheduled for a later time. However, if you're unsure whether your pet needs medical attention, please call us to discuss your situation.
3. We are still OPEN with the following hours:
Sunday to Saturday: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
4. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 2-4 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives. Please call us when you arrive to pick up your order, but do not enter the hospital. Our staff will bring your order to your car. You can also use our online store and have your food delivered directly to your home. To sign up for the Online Store, please visit our website.
5. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. Credit cards and debit card payments are still available.
6. Online consultations are now available! If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
7. Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our jobs. We have taken these measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this disease.
Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid, and any updates will be provided as changes occur.
