Vaccination

Low Volume Vaccines
Until now, vaccines for all dogs have been the same size (1ml), whether it is being given to a 2 pound puppy or a 120lb Mastiff. So when vaccinating small puppies and even small adults, there has always been a fear that a painful vaccine reaction may be more likely to occur. But now, we are pleased to introduce “Ultra” Duramune low volume vaccines. This line of Boehringer Ingelheim vaccines has been specially filtered & purified to give a more comfortable vaccine with only half the volume. With fewer extraneous proteins, we expect fewer painful reactions.

The new Low Volume vaccines contain the full dose of viral or bacterial antigen, so the immunity conferred to disease is not compromised. There is one vaccine for canine Distemper, infectious Hepatitis, and Parvovirus, and another for the 4 strains of Leptospirosis infection.

Vaccines for cats and dogs are given on a yearly basis, after an initial course.
The diseases we vaccinate for in cats and dogs are different.
