Vaccinations

Vaccinations for young animals are a necessary building block in the foundation of your pet's immune system, and boosters for adult dogs and cats are essential.

Following a proper vaccination schedule will help to ensure that you are doing your part to keep your new friend healthy.

Puppies need four rounds of vaccines and kittens need three. They should ideally start between 6-8 weeks of age, however if you receive your pet after that time you should get them started as soon as possible. The boosters should be given 3-4 weeks apart. The charts below show the schedule a 6-8 week old pet would follow.
