PREVENTATIVE HEALTH PROTOCOLS FOR DOGS AND CATS
Our recommended canine health protocol is based on the American Animal Hospital Association’s most recent vaccination guidelines and the American Heartworm Society’s most recent recommendations.
Distempter/Parvo Vaccine $20.00
• Gastro-intestinal/ respiratory virus, most common cause of puppy deaths.

They should receive a booster not later than 1 year after completion of the initial series, then every 3 years thereafter.
• Dogs over 16 weeks of age are considered protected after one dose. However we recommend at least one additional dose in 3 to 4 weeks. They should receive a booster every 3 years thereafter.

Note: Your pet may be sore and drowsy for 24 to 48 hours after receiving it's vaccinations. This is normal. Each pet’s immune system responds differently to the vaccines. Some have no problems at all. As long as your pet does not have facial swelling, excessive vomiting or hives they should be fine within 24 to 48 hours. No treatment should be required. If you have questions or concerns please call.
