Vaccine Conflictions

Our vet may decide to alter the vaccine schedule or skip vaccines altogether if your puppy is too young if they are a senior, or if they have a compromised immune system. Your vet will be able to explain what they recommend for your dog's individual situation.

Why are vaccinations important for your dog?

Vaccines protect your dog from a variety of serious and potentially fatal disorders and diseases. By vaccinating your puppy from the very beginning and following a schedule of vaccinations, you will ensure that your dog lives a long and healthy life free of preventable diseases. Vaccinating your puppy provides a solid foundation for their well-being in the future.
