As part of our commitment to preventative healthcare, we recommend a vaccination plan for all our furry patients. Vaccines aren’t one-size-fits-all so we provide individualized advice based on your pet’s needs and risk factors of contracting certain diseases. We want to protect your pet against preventable diseases that would otherwise cause serious health issues.

The range of time between booster shots depends on the specific vaccines. It could range from 1-3 years but it’s essential that your pet’s vaccination plan is updated annually. Your canine friend will need boosters for the following vaccines all throughout their adult and senior life:
- Bordetella (non-core)
- Influenza (non-core)
- Leptospirosis (non-core)
- Lyme Disease (non-core)
