It is important to schedule routine wellness exams for your pets. We recommend yearly annual exams for pets aged 1 year and older.

Vaccinations

                       Vaccines for dogs

Rabies 

        A vaccine to prevent the rabies disease. Rabies can be transmitted by a bite of an infected animal. The only vaccine required by law. After the first vaccine is given, your dog will be vaccinated every 3 years. 

Distemper (DHPP)

        Stands for Distemper, Hepatitis (canine adenovirus -2 and -1), Parvovirus & Parainfluenza. Puppies get a series of 3 distemper vaccines starting from 6-8 weeks, 10-12 weeks & then at 14-16 weeks. After the completion of this series, your pup will only need it annually.

Bordatella (Kennel Cough)

         Even though you may not board your dog at a kennel doesn't mean you shouldn't have your pup vaccinated. Kennel cough is a virus which gets transmitted to dogs just as the common cold gets transmitted to us. Which means they can get kennel cough from pet stores, dog parks, etc. Kennel cough is an inflammation in your dogs upper respiratory system that causes a honk-like cough. Which if left untreated can cause other illnesses. Most training facilities, doggie daycares and boarding facilities require this vaccine.

Canine Influenza

          Vaccine to help prevent the dog flu. If you're dog receives the kennel cough vaccine they could really benefit from the canine influenza vaccine, because the risk factor between both are very similar. Especially being around other dogs in a group community.

        

Lyme

        Lyme disease is an infectious disease carried by the black legged tick or also known as the deer tick. It is very common in New England. With tick preventative and the lyme vaccine, your dog may have a better chance of not contracting this awful disease.

Leptospirosis

        A bacteria spread by infected animals through soil, water and urine. Common in wild animals. If contracted and not caught early, it can be deadly. This vaccine helps prevent leptospirosis.
