Canine Vaccination Schedule

Puppy Vaccination Schedule
*Bordetella Vaccination (Kennel Cough) can be administered at any time after the puppy has reached 8 weeks of age. This vaccine is only required when your dog will board at a kennel, attend puppy or other classes, go to a groomer or doggy daycare, etc. This vaccine can be given 2 weeks before your dog is scheduled to attend one of these situations and is otherwise not routinely given.

*H3N8 (Canine influenza) Vaccination can be administered any time after your puppy has reached 6 weeks of age. This vaccine does require a booster 2-4 weeks later to provide full protection. Like Bordetella, this vaccine is recommended for dogs in kennel situations or when they are exposed to other dogs.

Flea/Tick Preventative
Please note that our hospital requires a yearly 4DX / heartworm antigen test in order for heartworm prevention to be dispensed. All diseases that this test detects are treatable and can greatly impact your dog's health if left untreated. The only way for us to ensure that your pet receives proper treatment is to test yearly and/or when one of these diseases is suspected.

Heartworm prevention is recommended year round to protect your pet. Our hospital chooses to use primarily Interceptor Plus, which comes in a once a month flavored chewable. Interceptor Plus prevents heartworm disease and controls roundworm, hookworm, tapeworm and whipworm infestation in dogs.

Flea/tick prevention is also recommended year round, as flea and tick infestations are much easier to prevent than to treat once established. Fleas can not only cause itchy suffering and rashes to both you and your pets, but they can also transmit tapeworms as well. In severe cases fleas and ticks can cause anemia, causing severe health complications for your pet. Ticks can transmit Lyme Disease, as well as the lesser known diseases ehrlichiosis and anaplasmosis. All of these tick diseases can cause severe pain in the joints, fever, lethargy and deterioration to the organs if left untreated.
