At Riverview Animal Hospital, our puppy vaccine program begins when your puppy is 8-weeks-old. At that time, he/she will come in for a complete physical exam, along with their first series of vaccines. We will continue with your puppy’s journey, by doing additional vaccines and health exams at 12 weeks of age and 16 weeks of age. Then your puppy is up to date for 1 year. The information that you will receive from our team during your puppy’s visits will ensure you and your puppy have an excellent start to a wonderful healthy life together.
We offer all the core vaccines that will ensure your puppy has a long and healthy life.
Why is it important to properly vaccinate your puppy?
Puppies can be especially susceptible to disease because of their developing immune system. Although puppies have some immune protection from their moms, it is uncertain how long that protection lasts. That is why it is so important to help your puppy get off to a great start.

WE ARE CHANGING OUR EMERGENCY SYSTEM INTO A TRUE TRIAGE-BASED SYSTEM
We will no longer have suggested appointment times for urgent care situations
Please continue to call ahead to let us know that your pet is having an emergency and that you are on your way.
For our emergency hospital-evenings and weekends will be walk in only. Your pet will be triaged by a Veterinary technician, who will determine the level of care that is needed for your pet. Critical patients will be our top priority, and will be seen first.
This will increase wait times for patients that are triaged as non-urgent.
Thank you in advance for your understanding.
