At Lomsnes Veterinary Hospital, we believe vaccinations and annual exams are an essential part of your dog’s health and longevity. Adult dogs require a yearly wellness exam, regular deworming and vaccinations every 3 years. By immunizing your dog against possible illness, you not only protect them from getting sick but you help control the spread of contagious diseases. Along with the vaccine, your dog will receive a wellness exam from one of our veterinarians. This includes checking ears, eyes, teeth, heart, abdomen, joints, weight, growths and overall body condition. The veterinarian is also your best source of advice regarding deworming products, nutrition, and behaviour. Remember prevention is the best medicine!
What types of vaccinations do you offer for adult dogs?
Adult dogs are vaccinated against distemper, hepatitis, parainfluenza, adenovirus, parvo, Bordetella (kennel cough) and rabies. Our vaccination protocol consists of a wellness exam performed by one of our veterinarians, vaccinations and deworming.
Is there a schedule for how often to vaccinate a dog?
At Lomsnes Veterinary Hospital, we vaccinate an adult dog every 3 years against distemper, hepatitis, parainfluenza, adenovirus, parvo, and rabies. Along with the vaccinations, a wellness exam is performed by one of our veterinarians and a dewormer is sent home. The Bordetella (kennel cough) vaccine is administered yearly.
Why is it important to vaccinate your dog?
Vaccines prevent illness and as a responsible pet owner, keeping your dog free of illness is as important as providing food and water. By immunizing your dog against possible illness, you not only protect them from getting sick, but you help control the spread of contagious diseases. Along with the vaccine your dog will receive a wellness exam from one of our veterinarians. This includes checking ears, eyes, teeth, heart, abdomen, joints, weight, growths and overall body condition. Our vaccination protocol consists of a wellness exam performed by one of our veterinarians, vaccinations and deworming. Dogs age 7 years to each of our 1 year so issues can sneak up on us and become problematic quickly ie) obesity, dental disease. Contact Lomsnes Veterinary Hospital if you have any questions about having your dog vaccinated.
