Protect your dog from infectious diseases by keeping vaccinations up to date. Vaccinations stimulate your dog’s system to develop immunity. Because they prevent disease but do not cure disease. they must be administered before your dog is exposed and infected. Your dogs vaccination schedule depends on several factors: the age and health of your dog, and conditions in your dog’s environment. We would be happy to help you plan a vaccination schedule so that your dog’s vaccinations are up to date.

PUPPIES should receive their first vaccinations between six and ten weeks of age. They also need to have additional vaccinations about three weeks after the first set. Puppy shots are not effective for life, so it is important to keep up with vaccinations throughout your dog’s life.

ADULT DOGS need to receive booster vaccinations every year.


Some vaccinations are mixed so your dog does not have to receive separate shots for each disease. Examples of such mixtures are DHLP-P which refers to a mixture to protect against Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, Parainfluanza and Parvo.
