Every dog will receive a free cursory physical exam prior to being vaccinated. This exam is extremely brief and is to make certain that your pet is healthy enough to be vaccinated. Your pet must be bright, alert, responsive, hydrated, eating and drinking normally and have pink gums. For a complete, comprehensive physical exam to discuss any problem your pet is having, please see your full service veterinarian. Because our wellness veterinarian must look at every pet, we cannot vaccinate your pet while it is in your vehicle. If you cannot get your pet in line for the exam, then we cannot vaccinate your pet. All dogs must be on a tight leash. Retractable or loose leashes are not allowed for the safety of your pet and other clients and their pets.

Why should you vaccinate your pet?
Vaccination is a preventive measure and not a cure. Administering vaccines to your pet greatly improves their immune system by stimulating it to form disease fighting cells and proteins (known as antibodies) to protect against the disease.
About each vaccine:
Rabies: Rabies is a virus that may affect the brain and spinal cord of all mammals. The first rabies vaccination should be given at 3 to 4 months of age, with the first booster shot given one year later (at 15 months of age). Thereafter, give boosters annually.
Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza and Parvovirus (DAPPv): Commonly called the “distemper shot,” this combination vaccine actually protects against five diseases: canine distemper, adenovirus, hepatitis, parainfluenza, and parvovirus. It’s given to puppies in a series of three vaccines and then given every year to adult dogs. Along with rabies, DHPP is considered a set of core vaccines: those universally recommended for dogs no matter what the circumstance.
Bordetella (commonly called “kennel cough”): The bordetella virus causes an extremely contagious upper respiratory infection. Puppies should be given two doses of the Bordetella vaccine, about a month apart. Annual boosters are recommended if your dog regularly interacts with large groups of unknown dogs (boarding facilities, groomers, dog parks, etc.)
Heartworm Preventative Medication: Heartworms are contracted through mosquito bites. The best way to reduce the risk of infection is to administer a safe heartworm preventive that kills immature worms before they cause damage. Treatment for heartworms is risky and expensive so it is important to use year-round preventative medication since heartworm disease is preventable. Puppies should begin on heartworm preventative by 6 months of age. Any dog older than 6 months should be tested prior to beginning heartworm preventative. Testing is required annually even if your dog has been on preventative.
Lymes: Lyme disease is caused by bacteria called “Borrelia burgdorferi” and is spread by ticks. Annual boosters are recommended (ideally before tick season) if your dog is in an area where ticks may be present.
Canine Influenza (CIV): Commonly known as “the canine flu,” canine influenza is easily transmitted between dogs through a combination of aerosols, droplets, and direct contact with respiratory secretions. Annual boosters are recommended if your dog regularly interects with large groups of unknown dogs (boarding facilities, groomers, dog parks, etc.)
Leptospirosis: Dogs can become infected with “Leptospira” bacteria by exposure to contaminated water, exposure to urine from an infected animal, bite wounds, and ingestion of tissues from infected animals. Annual boosters are recommended if your dog has potential to come in contact with any wild animals or unknown bodies of water.
Strongid-T General Dewormer: Strongid-T is a general dewormer that treats hookworms and roundworms. Most puppies are born with internal parasites or worms derived from their mother, so puppies should be given three doses of this dewormer. It is also used to treat worms in adult dogs.
Droncit Tapeworm Dewormer: Droncit is a dewormer that treats tapeworms. Tapeworms are caused by the ingestion of fleas.
