Dog Vaccination

Dog Vaccinations

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?

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 Monday, March 23, 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 902-477-4040. We will take a history from outside of your vehicle, and bring your pet into the clinic for an examination with the veterinarian. We will then return to your vehicle with your pet to discuss our recommended treatment plan. If you do not have a cell phone please knock our door to let us know you have arrived and then return to your vehicle.

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.

3. We are still OPEN with the following hours:
Monday: 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Tuesday: 1:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Wednesday: 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Thursday: 1:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Friday: 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Saturday: 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

4. 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 and take payment over the phone. 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.

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

Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our roles. As such, we have taken measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this virus.

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.
