Puppy Vaccinations

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.

What vaccinations do you offer to new puppies?

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.
