Vaccination Service for Dogs

Dog Vaccinations

What types of vaccinations do you offer for adult dogs?

We offer vaccination against Rabies, Kennel Cough (not just for boarding animals) caused by both bacteria and viruses. Parvovirus which is a severe vomiting and diarrhea disease of dogs that can be fatal. Distemper which is a virus that can be carried by other dogs and raccoons and is potentially fatal. Adenovirus which causes liver disease in dogs. Leptospirosis which is a bacterial disease spread by wildlife and potentially fatal in dogs. It can also be spread to humans by infected dogs. There is a new vaccine available for canine flu, though currently this vaccine is only given based on potential exposure (for example travelling).

Why is it important to vaccinate your dog?

Vaccines are important in the prevention of certain diseases in dogs just as they are in humans. Some of the diseases we vaccinate for are potentially fatal, so it makes sense to prevent them rather than treat them since vaccines are in general very well tolerated in the vast majority of dogs. We vaccinate dogs starting as puppies and then continue as young adults. After 2 and 1/2 years of age, some of the vaccines we use are only given every 3 years to provide immunity. We tailor the vaccines give to each dog based on their lifestyle, risk factors, breed as well as any previous vaccine concerns. With some diseases such as Rabies, it is mandatory to vaccinate your dog so that they provide a barrier against exposure for humans. As well as for wildlife with Rabies that could potentially infect your dog if not vaccinated. Once clinical signs of Rabies have developed, it is 100% a fatal disease for both dogs and humans, so it makes sense to vaccinate preventively.

COVID-19: Additional measures we are taking

Dear Clients,

Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members.

The following changes are effective as of Wednesday, March 18, 2020:

1. We are currently operating a "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us at 905-855-2100. We will bring your pet into the hospital for an examination with the veterinarian. The veterinarian will then call you to discuss our recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a technician will return your pet to your car and take care of any needed medications and payment.

2. We are continuing to accept appointments for urgent or sick pets, as well as time-sensitive puppy/kitten vaccinations. All other services will be scheduled for a later time. However, if you're unsure whether your pet needs medical attention, please call us to discuss your situation.

3. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 2-4 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives. Please call us when you arrive to pick up your order, but do not enter the hospital. Our staff will bring your order to your car. At this time, we are limiting food purchases to 2 bags or 2 cases per client. You can also use our online store and have your food delivered directly to your home. To sign up for the Online Store, visit our website.

4. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. Credit cards and debit card payments are still available.

5. Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our jobs. We have taken these measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this disease.

Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid, and any updates will be provided as changes occur.
