• How often do dogs need vaccinations?

    Hi An’marie, thanks for your question. The frequency of vaccinations for a dog will depend on a few different factors including the dog’s age, weight, overall health, and current vaccine status as well as the environment that they will be exposed to. Puppies will need a series of vaccines about every 3 weeks and for adult dogs certain vaccines can last for 3 years before the recommended boosters. For your individual pet’s recommendations I recommend that you call and talk to your local vet. They know your pet’s medical history and the risk in your area and they will be able to give you the best advice on this.
