Possible Vaccine Conflictions

Our vet may decide to alter the vaccine schedule or skip vaccines altogether if your puppy is too young, if they are a senior, or if they have a compromised immune system. Your vet will be able to explain what they recommend for your dog's situation.

Why are vaccinations important for your dog?

Vaccines help to protect your dog from a variety of serious and potentially fatal disorders and diseases. Vaccinating your puppy from the very beginning and following a schedule of vaccinations will help ensure your dog will live a long and healthy life. When you vaccinate your puppy, you provide a solid foundation for their well-being in the future.
