Our vaccines, microchips & flea/tick products are of the highest quality available in today's veterinary medicine.  They are the same products used in veterinary hospitals, purchased from the same veterinary supply vendors as major vet hospitals. The difference in our services and prices compared to veterinary hospitals is that we SPECIALIZE in vaccinations, microchipping and flea/tick prevention.  We do NOT charge a fee to see your pet, which is an automatic substantial savings.  Our products are offered at a lower price than at most veterinary hospitals since we maintain a low overhead. Our veterinarians and team members volunteer much time to make certain that healthy pet care (preventative care) is available for any budget.

VACCINATING your pet is very important.  However, it is also important to NOT over-vaccinate!
We adhere strictly to the guidelines set forth by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA).

Vaccinations have been greatly improved over the years.  It is no longer necessary to vaccinate every year for most viruses.  The appropriate vaccination schedule core vaccines (DHPP, Rabies, FvRCP) is as follows.  Other vaccines are available, however, not recommended unless your pet is in an area endemic to a specific disease or risk not covered in the core vaccines.  Consult the veterinarian for more information on non-CORE vaccines:

MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS...
Vaccination Protocol based upon AVMA Guidelines:
When should I vaccinate my puppy?
Puppies:
Set #1 (8 weeks)
DHPP (1 of 3)
De-wormer (1 of 2), Repeat 10-14 days De-wormer (1-2)

Set #2 (11-12 weeks)
DHPP (2 of 3)
Bordetella (kennel cough)  (1 of 2)  OPTIONAL vaccine.  It is required at groomers,boarding facilities, dog parks or recommended if your dog will be socialized with other dogs.

Set #3 (16 weeks)
DHPP (3 of 3)**
Bordetella (kennel cough) (2 of 2)

RABIES (1st rabies vaccination): Minimum age 12 weeks.  (This applies to puppies and kittens)
The veterinarian will determine when the first rabies should be administered, based upon age, breed, health of the pet, or other factors. The first rabies vaccination, for an animal of any age, is always a 1 year vaccination.  All subsequent boosters are effective for 3 years.

Repeat Set #3 + Rabies in 1 YEAR. At that time, DHPP, FvRCP, FELV & Rabies will become a 3 year vaccination.  Bordetella (dogs) will always be a 1 year vaccination since it is a bacteria, not a virus.
When will my puppy be able to go to dog parks or beaches?

PUPPIES SHOULD NOT GO TO BEACHES, DOG PARKS, OR BE SOCIALIZED WITH OTHER PETS UNTIL THEY HAVE BEEN FULLY VACCINATED AND ARE AT LEAST 16 WEEKS (when the immune system has had time to become established)
** Some breeds, Rottweilers in particular, are more susceptible to Parvo.  A 4th DHPP is recommended in the first year series for these breeds, or in order to ensure that the final first year series for puppies or kittens is administered at a minimum age of 16 weeks (the time when the immune system is becoming established).  Puppies and elderly dogs (age 7 or older) are also more susceptible to Parvo.  Note that Parvo is a virus which is airborne.  It can be transferred on clothing, shoes if anyone in your household is exposed to an animal infected with parvo at any location.  It is also blown through the air and into your home if an infected animal is within 1 mile of your home.  Parvo lives a long time in dog feces.  Do NOT allow your puppy or dog to sniff pet feces!
KITTENS:
Set #1: (8 weeks)
FvRCP (1 of 3)
De-worming (1 of 2) Repeat in 10-14 days
Set #2: (12 weeks)
FvRCP (2 of 3)
FELV (Leukemia/Outdoor kittens/cats) (1 of 2)
Set #3:  (16 weeks)
FvRCP (3 of 3)
FELV (Leukemia/Outdoor kittens/cats) (2 of 2)
Rabies (1 year)
REPEAT SET #3 IN 1 YEAR. At that time, all vaccinations will become 3 YEAR boosters!


RABIES VACCINATIONS:    1ST Rabies or Booster (3 Year Rabies) $10
The veterinarian will determine when to administer rabies, based upon age, breed, health and/or size of the pet.  A rabies vaccination for a Toy breed should ALWAYS be administered as a SINGLE vaccination, at least 2 weeks between any other vaccinations!  All first rabies vaccinations are good for 1 year, regardless of the age of the animal at the time of vaccination.  Subsequent rabies vaccinations are good for 3 years.  Dogs are required to be licensed for rabies (click on our locations link for the licensing agency based upon your residential address).  Cats in Coronado (only) are also required to be licensed.  We are not affiliated with the licensing agencies and are not authorized to provide cost or any other information on behalf of the licensing agencies.  Please direct any questions regarding licensing directly to them (number provided on our list).
