Frequently Asked Questions

How old should my Puppy/Kitten be in order to be vaccinated?

All puppies and kittens need to be at least 6 – 8 weeks old.

Dogs need these vaccinations every year: Rabies, DHPPL, Bordetella.

Cats need these vaccinations every year: Rabies, FELV, FVRCP.

We are a 4 round clinic. Once they are given their first round they need to come back in 2 – 4 weeks to get their other round of shots.

If it has been more than 4 weeks we recommend starting over. When a puppy or kitten is under a year their immune system is changing and growing every 4 weeks. So if a booster hasn’t been given within 4 weeks their chances of getting Distemper or Parvo increase dramatically.

We don’t accept feed store vaccinations because they are not regulated in transit and the active ingredient could be non effective due to poor storage and handling.

All pets have to be at least 12 weeks in order to be spayed or neutered.
