Is there a schedule for how often a dog should be vaccinated?
Our schedule takes into consideration the specific needs of each dog. Depending on
the risk and exposure factors, the schedule may be modified. Generally, annual vaccinations
are needed for Bordetella and Lyme. Rabies is needed every 2-3 years and the combination
Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus and Parainfluenza (DHPP) vaccine is a 3-year vaccine.
Why is it important to vaccinate your dog?
Vaccines are important because they build long-term immunity for your dog. Whether
your dog is a homebody, an explorer or a social butterfly, there is always a chance they may
face exposure to a preventable disease. Having an immune system that is equipped to protect
your dog when they are exposed to common viruses can prevent illness and help to keep your
dog living a long and healthy life.
