Vaccinations


For both dogs and cats, immunization needs vary depending on age, exposure to other animals, and if they travel to Lyme disease areas.

We recommend doing wellness exams for your pet when they are 8 weeks, 12 weeks and 16 weeks old. Following these three exams, we recommend yearly wellness exams until the pet is considered to be a senior pet. We recommend for a senior pet, wellness visits every 6 months; the needed vaccinations will be given at the first visit and recommended blood work done at the second visit. If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call.
