Puppy Vaccinations

Puppy vaccinations are essential for providing adequate immunity. They will provide your puppy’s immune system with protection from unwanted diseases that may be encountered during their first year of life.

What vaccinations do you offer to new puppies?

We provide vaccinations against distemper, parvovirus, adenovirus, parainfluenza, rabies, and bordetella.

Why is it important to properly vaccinate your puppy?

Vaccinating your puppy is one of the best things you can do to provide lifelong health. Puppies will have a weaker immune system, which makes them more susceptible to contracting fatal illnesses. Vaccination is the first step in prevention.

What is an appropriate schedule for puppy vaccinations?

Ideally, puppies should be vaccinated at 8 weeks of age, 12 weeks of age and 16 weeks of age. Please contact Cumberland Veterinary Clinic if you have questions about when your puppy should be vaccinated.

How should you prepare your puppy for its first vaccination visit?

Please bring any documents that you have on your puppy. It is very helpful for us to see records for any vaccines that have already been given, when or if they have received any deworming medication and any health conditions that may be present. It can also be helpful to bring a list of questions/struggles that you may be having with your new puppy, such as house training or behaviour.

How much do puppy vaccinations cost?

Prices for puppy vaccinations can vary based on your puppies needs. Please contact Cumberland Veterinary Clinic for information on pricing.

COVID-19: Additional measures we are taking

Dear Clients,

Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members.

The following changes are effective as of Monday, March 23, 2020:

1. We are currently operating a “closed waiting room” policy and "drop off" policy to protect our clients and staff. We ask that you follow these steps:

a. When you arrive, please remain stay in the hallway and use your cell phone to call us at 306.373.3500. Please ensure your pet is either in a carrier or has a collar that can be attached to a leash.

b. Once an exam room is ready, we will come to take your pet from you and into an exam room and call you to take a history and talk about any concerns.

c. Once the exam is over we call you with our recommended treatment plan, we can then arrange to take payment over the phone./p>

d. We will then bring your pet out to you in the hallway.

2. We are giving priority to urgent or sick pets, as well as time-sensitive puppy/kitten vaccinations. All other services please give us a call and we can decide if the appointment can be done at a later time.

3. As of March 30th we are still OPEN with the following hours: Monday through Friday: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm, Saturday: 9:00 am - 4:00 pm, & closed on Sundays

4. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 2-4 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives and you will be asked to pay over the phone. Please call us when you arrive to pick up your order, and we will place your order outside on the table or bring to you in the hallway.

5. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. Credit cards and debit card payments are still available.

Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our roles. As such, we have taken measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this virus.

Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid and any updates will be provided as changes occur.
