Our team continues to be here for you and your cherished pets. We are OPEN and are now able to provide a wide range of services. To learn more about the changes we have implemented in response to COVID-19 and what to expect during your next visit, click here.
Our dogs are part of the family, and we want our furry family members to live long, healthy lives. One of the most important defences to boost our dog’s immunity and to protect them from various illness is vaccinations. Vaccines are one of our most important weapons against infectious diseases. Some diseases such as rabies are transmissible to humans, so protecting our dogs also protects our family and friends.
What types of vaccinations do you offer for adult dogs?
The vaccines we offer for adult dogs are the Distemper combination vaccine (this includes Distemper, Adenovirus, Parvovirus, and Parainfluenza), Bordetella (kennel cough), and Rabies- these are considered our core vaccines. We strongly recommend adult dogs to also get the Leptospirosis vaccine and Lyme vaccination depending on the individual dog’s lifestyle.
Is there a schedule for how often a dog should be vaccinated?
Vaccine schedules and selection should be an individualized choice that is made by the pet owner and the veterinarian. Together, they take into consideration the risk associated with the pet. A dog that goes to dog parks, doggy daycare, and grooming may require more vaccines than a dog that never strays from the home. Please call us today to book an appointment to discuss a vaccination protocol for your dog.
How much does it cost to vaccinate my dog?
For pricing, please contact the hospital and we will be happy to provide you with a quote.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective June 5, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. OPERATING HOURS
Starting June 8, we are available to serve you and your pets during the following hours:
Monday to Friday: 7:30 am - 8:00 pm*
Saturday: 8:00 am - 2:00 pm Sunday: CLOSED
*On weekdays we will be closed for 1 hour in the afternoon in order to catch up on communications with our clients. This is a temporary measure. Thank you for your understanding.
