The Importance of Vaccinations

Our vets believe that getting your dog vaccinated is an essential part of your pet's annual preventive health care. By getting your dog vaccinated early in life, and regularly throughout their lifetime, you help to provide your pet with their best chance of living a long, and healthy life.

Vaccines can protect your dog against a number of serious, often fatal diseases such as rabies, hepatitis, and parvovirus. When it comes to caring for your dog, prevention is always better than treatment.
