DOG VACCINESRABIES VACCINE:
Rabies is a virus that affects the nervous system of animals. Our pets can contract this virus via bitewound from an infected animal. This is a lethal virus that humans can contract, which is why the law requires our dogs be vaccinated against rabies (Lane County Animal Code
Our Protocol: The rabies vaccine is first given to dogs between 4 and 6 months of age, re-vaccinated at 1.5 years of age, and then re-vaccinated every three years thereafter.COMBO VACCINE (DHP/P)
This vaccine is four shots in one, and it protects dogs against distemper, hepatitis, parainfluenza, and parvo viruses. None of these animal forms can be contracted by humans.
Our Protocol: The combo vaccine is given at 8 weeks of age, again at 12 weeks of age, and then parvo only at 16 weeks of age. The dog should be re-vaccinated at 1.5 years of age, 2.5 years of age, and then every three years thereafter.BORDATELLA VACCINE
This vaccine is given to dogs to prevent "kennel cough". It is generally required if your dog will be staying at a boarding kennel, but is recommended if your dog is in frequent contact with strange dogs (dog parks).
Our Protocol: The vaccine lasts for 1 year, but some kennels may require the vaccine be given just prior to boarding. An intranasal vaccine should be given 2 weeks prior to boarding, or an injectable vaccine should be given 1 month prior to boarding.OTHER VACCINES
Corona Virus: There are a large number of different corona viruses. We do not typically vaccinate for them, due to their low risk in our region of Oregon.
Leptospirosis: This is not a virus, but is a spirochete. Few cases have been reported in our area, and we do not typically vaccinate against it.
