At Lancaster Animal Clinic in Lancaster, OH, we offer vaccinations for canines of all ages. Our vaccination services are part of our veterinary team's emphasis on preventative care. This helps keep your dog from getting sick in the first place. Read on to learn more about the vaccinations we offer for puppies and adult dogs.
Our Puppy Vaccines & Adult Dog Vaccines
a puppy's immune system is more fragile than that of an adult dog. This is why puppies need to get several vaccines at a young age. The vaccinations that we frequently give to puppies include the distemper, parvovirus, and canine hepatitis vaccines. Puppies generally receive these vaccines at the age of two to three months.
Adult dogs also need to get regular vaccinations. Perhaps the most well-known is the rabies vaccine. However, adult dogs should also receive the DHPP (distemper/adenovirus/parainfluenza/hepatitis) booster every three years.
Why Vaccines for Rabies & Other Diseases are Important
Vaccinations and other forms of preventative care are vital for your dog's health. This is because dogs who get sick due to a lack of preventative treatment will have to undergo pain and suffering until they can be cured. In some cases, dogs can even pass away from conditions that could have been prevented with preventative care. It's also important to keep in mind that preventative care is far less expensive for owners than treating a major disease. Vaccinations are very affordable, while treatment for a major disease could cost thousands of dollars.
