Are you unsure of what vaccines are needed for a new pet?
For a new kitten:
- FVR-C-P at 8 & 12 & 16 weeks.
- Feline Leukemia Vaccination at 9 & 12 weeks.
- Rabies 12 weeks or older
For a new puppy:
- DHPP at 8, 12, and 16 weeks of age
- Rabies at 12 weeks.
Optional vaccines based on lifestyle and risks:
- Lyme at 12 and 16 weeks. We highly recommend this due to the high incidence of lyme disease in our area.
- Bordetella at any of the above visits. We recommend this if your dog will be socializing with other dogs or going to a kennel, day care or grooming setting.
- Leptospirosis at 12 and 16 weeks.
Be sure to bring a fecal sample to check for intestinal parasites.
We recommend all dogs use a monthly preventive all year round for the control of fleas and ticks. We offer Frontline Tritak, Vectra 3D, and a new monthly oral flea and tick product called Nexgard. Each product has its own benefits. We can help you choose which product best suits your pet's needs.
We test for Heartworm/Lyme/Erlichia/Anaplasma yearly with a single blood test.
Heartgard should be started within 30 days of a negative test and given monthly all year round.
Other facts about vaccines available:
- Bordetella-Intra-Nasal (Kennel Cough) should be given at least 1 week prior to boarding.
- Bordetella Injectable, Lyme and Leptospirosis vaccines must be given in a series of 2 vaccines when give for the first time to a dog or puppy.
