Puppy Vaccinations

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.

What vaccinations do you provide to new puppies?


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.
