(DHPP-CVK=Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, Parvo, Corona)

7 1/2 - 9 WEEKS: DHPP-CVK1 Fecal Examination


12 - 16 WEEKS: DHPP-CVK3 1-Year Rabies

1 YEAR LATER: DHPP-CVK, 3-Year Rabies, Fecal

YEAR 2 AND EACH ENSUING YEAR: Annual exam and vaccines appropriate for your dog's lifestyle.

Current research shows that most dogs will then only need core vaccines every 3 years. We recommend yearly exams to insure the continued good health of your pet.

Bordatella Vaccine is recommended in kennel situations and is given as a spray up the nose. The vaccine is fast-acting, and will give protection in 2-7 days.

At this time we don't recommend routine vaccination for Lymes, Leptosirosis, or Giardia.
