At Acadia Veterinary Hospital, we can offer the most current advice on preventative health care, including the right vaccinations for your dog. Vaccines are an important part of preventative healthcare for your dog. Some vaccines, such as rabies, are required by law. Others are just as good as common sense for the long term health of your dog.
What types of vaccinations do you offer for adult dogs?
The vaccines that are recommended for every healthy dog are referred to as “core vaccines.” These include rabies, distemper, adenovirus type 2, parvovirus and canine parainfluenza. Other vaccines may be recommended based on your dog’s lifestyle, such as Bordetella (kennel cough), leptospirosis and Lyme disease.
Is there a schedule for how often to vaccinate a dog?
Vaccination schedules can vary from one pet to the next. Speak to our veterinarians to find out what your dog needs to stay happy and healthy.
Why is it important to vaccinate your dog?
Vaccinations are a very important part of keeping you and your dog healthy. Several diseases, such as rabies and leptospirosis, are a risk to people, as well as pets. By ensuring your pet remains up to date on their vaccinations, you help to limit these risks. In addition, it is much more economical to vaccinate your canine companion, than to end up paying for treatment of a preventable illness.
