RABIES (Thimerosal Free) (killed virus) $7
♦ Dogs MUST be vaccinated against Rabies at 3 months of age and re-vaccinated one year after the primary immunization. It is required by law that all Dogs must stay current on their Rabies vaccinations. The first Rabies vaccine is good for 1 year, regardless of the age of the dog. Thereafter, Rabies vaccines are good for 3 years as long as at least 12 months have passed since the dog received its first Rabies vaccination and valid proof of a prior Rabies vaccination by a licensed veterinarian in the U.S. is provided.
DHPP (Distemper, Adenovirus Type 2 [Hepatitis], Parvo Virus & Parainfluenza) (modified live virus) $23

♦ Puppies & Dogs older than 16 weeks old: An initial series of 2 DHPP vaccinations administered 4 weeks apart is recommended. (2 to 5 weeks apart is acceptable).
Ideally, your puppy should receive at least one of the DHPP vaccines between the age of 14 weeks to 16 weeks old to achieve the best immunity. During your dog's initial vaccine series, do not wait longer than 6 weeks apart to have your pet vaccinated, and do not vaccinate less than 2 weeks apart.
♦ The first DHPP vaccination booster is due 12 months after the completion of the initial series. Thereafter, it is recommended that DHPP boosters be administered every 36 months. In some instances, however, more frequent boosters may be appropriate.

LYME Borrelia Burgdorferi / Lyme Borreliosis (killed whole bacterin) $25
♦ Puppies & Dogs 9 weeks and older: An initial series of 2 Lyme vaccinations administered 2 to 4 weeks apart. This vaccine should be administered separately from other vaccines and at a minimum of 2 weeks (preferably longer) before or after any other vaccination.
♦ The first Lyme vaccination booster is due 12 months after the completion of the initial series. Thereafter, boosters are recommended every 12 months IF your dog will continue to be in a high-tick infested area.
Lyme Disease is a tick-bourne disease. The Lyme vaccine is not a core vaccine and is recommended only in instances when dogs encounter high exposure to ticks such as those living in or visiting wooded or thick brush areas, mountains, deserts, or natural park areas (possibly when camping, hiking, etc. where there may be an infestation of ticks or where exposure to wildlife which carry ticks such as rabbits, deer, etc. is high).
Your dog's age, health, vaccination history, environment, and exposure risks are factors in determining a proper vaccination schedule for your dog. It may be necessary to vaccinate more frequently or less frequently than as recommended above. Please consult with your regular veterinarian or our veterinarian if you have any questions or concerns.
