Preventative care is an important aspect in maintaining your dog, cat and ferret’s health. Proper vaccinations are vital in protecting them against harmful diseases.

We believe that preventative care is one of the most important aspects of maintaining your pet’s health. There are a variety of diseases that affect dogs, cats and ferrets so proper vaccination of your pet is vital in protecting them. Vaccinations are accompanied by a consultation and examination with our veterinarians to make certain that your pet’s condition is stable enough to receive them.

When should my pet get vaccinated?

Vaccinations are particularly important for puppies, kittens and ferret kits because they have immature immune systems. Vaccinations generally begin at 8 weeks of age and repeated every 4 weeks until your pet is 16 weeks old.

Our doctors will determine the appropriate vaccination plan for your adult dog, cat, and ferret based on their lifestyle and risk factors.
