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.
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.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 11, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
