Dog Exam And Vaccine Fees

We frequently have clients ask about fees and vaccine schedules via email. Here you can find a brief summary of dog vaccinations and services we provide. Please keep in mind that what an individual patient needs can be very complex and your pets needs should be discussed with our staff.

Puppies should start their vaccination series at 7-9 weeks of age and should be re-vaccinated every 3 weeks until 16-18 weeks of age. However, they do not receive the same vaccinations at at each visit.

Examinations are required when administering most vaccinations (exceptions: bordetella, influenza given to boarding or grooming patients, or as noted below).
