Dog Vaccinations

What types of vaccinations do you offer for adult dogs?


Keeping your dog up to date on vaccines is a critical step to preventing disease. There are many different vaccines available to you for your four-legged family member. It is important to consider your dog’s risk of exposure when choosing the right vaccines for your dog.

The recommended vaccinations for dogs are as follows:

  • DA2PP: This is the general core vaccine for dogs. It includes:
    – Distemper: Life-threatening contagious disease affecting the respiratory, GI and central nervous system.
    – Hepatitis: Highly contagious disease of primarily the liver that can cause fever, diarrhea, vomiting and convulsions.
    – Parvovirus: Highly contagious (and sometimes fatal) disease that is shed in the feces, causes vomiting and diarrhea and is more severe in puppies and older dogs.
    – Parainfluenza: Viral disease causing a dry, hacking cough, sneezing and fever.
  • Rabies: A fatal disease that attacks the brain and nervous system, is transmitted through saliva and can affect humans as well. Required by law in New Brunswick.
  • Bordetella: Also known as Kennel Cough, viral airborne disease causing a persistent cough.
  • Leptospirosis: Infectious bacterial disease transmitted through urine, often in puddles and lakes. Spread by wildlife that is prevalent in this area ie skunks raccoon and fox. Also affects humans.

Is there a schedule for how often a dog should be vaccinated?


After completing the vaccination series as a puppy adult dogs should have their vaccines on a yearly basis. The number and type of vaccinations will be determined by our hospital protocol.

Why is it important to vaccinate your dog?


Vaccinating your dog is the best way to prevent disease. Many of these diseases can be fatal but are completely preventable. It is also important to note that some people argue that vaccines cost too much money, but the bill for treating one of these diseases would be much higher and could potentially end tragically for your dog.

Dear Clients,

As a result of New Brunswick's plan to enter Level 2 of COVID-19 restrictions, we will proceed with the following protocol, effective immediately, until restrictions have been lifted.

We will be moving back to a curbside “Closed Waiting Room” policy, which means no clients will be permitted in the building, with exceptions. However, we will continue to offer FULL veterinary services.

If you have been contacted by Public Health or are showing symptoms of the virus, we ask that you call us to reschedule your appointment.

Procedure for surgeries and general appointments:

1. Call us at 622-2355 when you arrive in the parking lot. We will proceed in checking you in remotely.

2. When the Dr is ready to see your pet we will call your cell phone or wave at your vehicle and have you bring your pet to the main door. Please wear a mask when approaching the hospital to pass your pet to us.

3. A veterinarian will perform an examination or requested procedure inside the hospital while you wait in your vehicle, or a drop off appointment can be arranged.

4. Once the care of your animal is complete, the veterinarian will call you with their findings and devise a treatment plan.

5. Payment will be taken over the phone or in the parking lot via a portable debit machine. We are trying to limit cash use to a minimum.

6. Food and medications pick up will be curbside and payment can be accepted via e-transfer or credit card over the phone.

We are OPEN with the following hours:

- Monday and Thursday: 8:00am - 7:00pm
- Tuesday and Wednesday: 8:00am - 5:30pm
- Friday: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
- Saturday & Sunday: CLOSED

 

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

- Your dedicated team at Waterview Animal Hospital
