Dog Vaccinations

Vaccination is an important part of protecting your pet against potentially life-threatening diseases. Depending on your pet’s lifestyle and specific needs our veterinarians at Hillcrest will determine what vaccines best suit your pet’s needs.

What types of vaccinations do you offer for adult dogs?

Adult dogs are vaccinated yearly against infectious canine cough (a Bordetella or kennel cough) and leptospirosis. Once every three years, we vaccinate adult dogs for rabies and they receive their distemper series combination.

Is there a schedule for how often to vaccinate a dog?

Keeping your pet up to date on vaccinations is our key role in your pet’s life. Every annual exam visit determines what vaccines your pet needs to help keep them protected. Our veterinarians will discuss with you individually the lifestyle of your pet and can determine a schedule for their required vaccines. Contact the clinic today to ensure your pet is protected.

Why is it important to vaccinate your dog?

It is important to have your pet vaccinated as it is a great means of prevention for potentially life-threatening diseases.

What’s included in dog vaccinations fees?

Our yearly appointment for vaccination includes a full general health exam during which our veterinarian team will determine based on your pet’s lifestyle which vaccines they require that year. We also have various wellness plans that incorporate yearly vaccines. Prices vary per package etc.
