Canine Vaccine Schedule


Responsible owners know that to take the best care of a dog, their pet must be vaccinated against common diseases.  Vaccinations are given at different stages in a dog's life, so it is crucial to know when your dog should be vaccinated and what vaccines they need.  Vaccinating your dog has long been considered one of the easiest ways to help them live a long, healthy life.  Not only are there different vaccines for different diseases, there are different types and combinations of vaccines.  We recommend that your dog should be on heartworm prevention 9-12 months out of the year.
