Animal Vaccines

Vaccines help keep your pets safe from infectious viruses and other harmful diseases.  It is important to keep your vaccinations current.  Routine boosters will keep your pet protected throughout their life.

For Puppies

The rabies vaccine is given when the puppy reaches 15 weeks of age.  After completion of the program, yearly boosters of the distemper/parvo combination and the three-year rabies vaccinations are recommended for continued protection throughout your dog’s life.

We have three different Healthy Puppy Programs that are tailored to your puppy's lifestyle.  See our separate webpage that details each of these programs.

Vaccinations:

  • DA2PP (Distemper, Adenovirus Type 2, Para influenza, Parvovirus) - We recommend vaccinating at 9, 12, and 15 weeks of age, then annually.
  • Rabies – We recommend vaccinating at 15 weeks of age which is a 1 year vaccine, then every 3 years.
  • Corona virus – Depending on exposure
  • Influenza - Depending on exposure and some boarding kennels in our area require this vaccine.

The poor dog, in life the firmest friend.  The first to welcome, foremost to defend
