GETTING A NEW PUPPY OR KITTEN IS AN EXCITING EXPERIENCE!
The First Step To Protecting Your New Pet
We are here to help you make sure your new family member is healthy and protected. The following series of core vaccines must be given in sequence to make sure that your pet is completely protected. These vaccines are given with their boosters 3 weeks apart. If your pet fails to receive these vaccines and the subsequent boosters on schedule, we may be forced to add to or restart the process.
- DHPP with 2-3 boosters
- Rabies: at or after 4 months
- Bordetella: 1st intranasal and 2nd injectable booster
- Lepto with one booster
- Lyme with one booster
Indoor Only Felines:
- FVRCP with 1-3 boosters
- Rabies after 4 months
- Feline leukemia with 1 booster
After the boosters are complete, your pet will be safe for 1 year!
More Recommended Ways To Protect Your Pet
Preventing Intestinal Parasites
Pets are also predisposed to intestinal parasites. Current stool testing and deworming are an important part of keeping your pet safe.
We also recommend a heartworm test after 7 months of age. You will want to discuss with your doctor the best heartworm preventative for your pet’s specific needs.
Microchipping is also a great way to keep your pet safe, and in the worst case, it will give you the best possible chances of reuniting with your furry loved ones.
Spay & Neuter
Neutering or Spaying your pet is a great way to avoid having puppies in the future, but it also takes away the risks of developing conditions such as testicular cancer, ovarian cancer, etc.
