Vaccinations for Puppies and Dogs

Vaccines provide protection against harmful diseases that might otherwise cause irreparable damage or are fatal. For the most part, fully vaccinated furry friends develop immunity against the disease they’re vaccinated for. This means they receive full protection against contracting some viruses or the impact of the virus will be significantly lessened. Our veterinary team will work with you to develop a vaccination plan that supports your pet, regardless of what stage they’re in.

What vaccines will my canine friend receive?

Feline friends receive core vaccines that protect them against highly-contagious, serious illnesses that can harm them. These vaccines might include:

  • Canine Distemper – a virus disease, causing complications in the respiratory, digestive and nervous system. It can be potentially fatal
  • Canine Hepatitis – a disease, causing liver failure, eye damage and respiratory problems. It can be potentially fatal
  • Canine Parvovirus – a disease, causing damage to the digestive system
  • Rabies – an extremely fatal disease, causing weakness, paralysis and extreme aggression

    What non-core vaccines might my pet receive?

    Non-core vaccines are given to your pet, based on the likelihood they’ll contract certain diseases or infections. These vaccines might include:

  • Bordetellosis (Kennel cough) – a disease, causing respiratory issues like pneumonia
  • Canine Parainfluenza Virus – a virus, causing coughing, nose discharge and fever
  • Leptospirosis – a bacteria, causing flu-like symptoms and liver or kidney disease
  • Borreliosis (Lyme disease) – a disease, causing kidney, heart and joint problems
  • Coronavirus – a disease, causing digestive system issues

    What’s the difference between vaccines for puppies and dogs?

    Puppies start receiving vaccines around 6 months old. Once they are 1-year old, they receive a booster as well as follow-up boosters depending on the vaccine, which might be every 3 years.
