Your canine friend should be vaccinated to build their immunity or reduce their risk of infection against a range of transmittable diseases. Our veterinary team will create a vaccination plan unique to your pet’s personal needs. Based on their lifestyle and susceptibility to some diseases, we’ll recommend which vaccinations will meet their needs.
When should my pet get vaccinated?
When a mother has given birth, their newborn puppy is given antibodies to protect them against infection. From their first few weeks of life, their immunity weakens and they’ll need to be vaccinated. Puppies should get vaccinated at 6 to 8 weeks, with boosters up until they’re 16-weeks-old. If you’re interested in creating a vaccination plan for your pet, please contact us at (905) 983-9010. We recommend the following core vaccines for your pet:
- Adenovirus-2 (Hepatitis)
Why does my pet need non-core vaccines?
Non-core vaccines depend on your pet’s lifestyle and susceptibility to contracting a range of diseases. We recommend these based on your furry friend’s specific needs. Some of these include:
- Bordetella (Kennel cough): Airborne, respiratory virus that can lead to pneumonia
- Lyme disease: A disease affecting joints and kidneys, especially for pets living in areas with a high tick population
- Leptospirosis: Infection that can lead to chronic liver and kidney disease
