We follow preventive care and vaccination guidelines set forth by the American Animal Hospital Association. Vaccines are very safe and well-tolerated by most animals, and the benefits of vaccination almost always outweigh any small risk.

If your pet has a history of vaccine reactions in the past, however, we are happy to work with you to create a protocol that best protects your pet’s health while still ensuring they maintain adequate immunity. Our doctors do offer vaccine titer testing upon request.

  • Rabies
  • Parvovirus (a very severe gastrointestinal virus)
