Vaccination for Puppies and Dogs
As fellow pet owners, we know that vaccinations are the first step in ensuring a dog’s good health. They decrease their chances of catching the worst symptoms. Besides, vaccinations are just the beginning. When you consider their nutrition, environment and the regular wellness checks they will be receiving, it’s safe to say your pet will be getting the best protection from diseases.

When should my dog be vaccinated?
The immunity that a puppy has at birth begins to diminish sometime between 6 and 12 weeks. They will receive repeated vaccinations once a month until the puppy is about 3 to 4 months old. Thereafter, your dog will require repeat vaccinations at least once a year. Above all, follow the vaccination schedule recommended by our veterinarians. If there is too long an interval between the first vaccination and the booster, your dog may have to undergo the series all over again.
What kind of diseases is my dog protected from when vaccinated?
[/answer] Vaccinations are the first line of defence when it comes to your pet’s health. Many diseases, when left untreated or without preventative measures (regular vaccinations and wellness checks) can evolve into chronic medical conditions or fatality. After evaluating your dog’s health conditions and risk factors, our veterinarians will provide vaccinations against these diseases:
Your pet’s good health doesn’t just benefit them and your family, it also benefits the community you are in and the environments you visit. If you want your dog to socialize, getting them vaccinated will ensure they do not pass on their diseases to other dogs. In fact, you will need to prove they have been vaccinated if you want to travel.
