Vaccinations for Puppies and Dogs

Vaccinations are an important part of maintaining your pet’s health. They protect against a range of diseases and infections that would otherwise be detrimental to your pet’s health. Based on their age and risk of contracting certain diseases, we’ll develop a vaccine plan to suit their needs. If you’re interested in creating a vaccine plan, please contact us at 705-753-0324.

How do you decide which vaccines my pet gets?

Your puppy or dog may receive vaccines that fall into two categories: core and non-core. Core vaccines are considered mandatory and essential. Non-core vaccines are optional and given based on exposure risk. Your veterinarian will be able to determine which vaccines are best for your pet during a consultation here at our hospital. 

Which core vaccines do you recommend?

We highly recommend puppies get vaccinated against: 

  • Rabies: A fatal and highly infectious neurological disease 
  • Canine distemper: An incurable, highly contagious disease
  • Canine parvovirus: A highly contagious disease, causing stomach and small intestine issues

Which non-core vaccines do you recommend?

Depending on your dog’s risk, we may also advise vaccinating get them against: 

  • Lyme disease: An autoimmune disease transmitted by infected ticks
