The Importance of Vaccinations

Vaccinations are an essential part of your dog's preventative health care. By making sure your dog is vaccinated early in life, and regularly as an adult, you provide them with the best chance at a long, healthy life.

Diseases like rabies, hepatitis, and parvovirus can be very serious and even fatal, particularly in puppies. Vaccines prevent these diseases from developing in the first place, which is always preferable to attempting to treat them once they exist in your pet.
