Protect your canine companion's immune system with core and non-core vaccines.
Having a new pet comes with a lot of excitement, but a lot goes into maintaining the health of your forever friend. For starters your pet needs to be vaccinated. Vaccines are effective in protecting your canine pals from diseases that pose serious health risks to them and sometimes even to your family. At Banner Road Veterinary Services, we can offer all the vaccines that your pet needs for maximum protection.
Vaccines stimulate an immune response in your pet. The injection may contain a live (but weakened) or inactive (killed) virus that won't develop into a disease. When it enters your pet's body, their immune system will begin to fight off the virus. This prepares their body how to react in the future when they encounter the virus.
If you have a puppy, they should get their first round of vaccines when they are 6 to 8-weeks-old. We usually administer the mandatory vaccines first. Your puppy will continue to receive different vaccines and doses until they are 16 weeks old. Adult dogs who were fully vaccinated as a puppy will need boosters periodically. It's absolutely necessary that dogs have routine boosters to maintain their immunity. If not adhered to, your pet may need to restart the entire series to rebuild their immunity. Each vaccine provides immunity for a certain amount of time. Your veterinarian will discuss boosters for your adult pet. Please call us at 519-285-2116 to schedule your pet's vaccination.
