A dog receiving a vaccination shot

Dog Vaccinations

Vaccines have been proven to prevent diseases that can cause your pet significant harm and may even be life-threatening. Common vaccines such as Rabies and Leptospirosis help prevent pets from contracting zoonotic diseases, which are types of diseases that can be passed on to humans.

What types of vaccinations do you offer for adult dogs?

At Avon Animal Hospital, we tailor our vaccine protocol to suit your pet. There are basic or “core” vaccines that almost all pets receive as well as non-core vaccinations provided to pets who would be at risk depending on their lifestyle. Your veterinarian can help you determine what vaccines are best for your pet’s complete protection.

Is there a schedule for how often a dog should be vaccinated?

The frequency of vaccination depends on both the pet and the type of vaccine administered. Some vaccines are approved for use every 3 years, while others need to be given annually. Regardless of your pet’s vaccine schedule, a complete annual physical exam is the cornerstone to keeping your pet healthy and happy.

Why is it important to vaccinate your dog?

Vaccines help your pet stay protected from preventable diseases and unnecessary pain and suffering. Vaccines are also important in preventing the spread of disease to other pets and people in the community.

How much does it cost to vaccinate my dog?

During your pet’s physical exam, your vet will help you decide what vaccinations your pet will benefit from, and this will determine the cost. We are happy to review all fees before treatments are provided.
