Canine vaccines are an integral part of keeping your pet healthy. At the Riverview Animal Hospital, we understand that every dog is different. We are very cognizant of the fact that not every dog needs the same vaccine year after year. That is why we have developed a vaccine schedule that staggers your dog’s vaccines. This ensures that your dog is always up to date with the protection they need.
What types of vaccinations do you offer for adult dogs?
We offer all core vaccines that help to ensure your dog lives a full and healthy life. We also offer vaccines that help to protect against Lyme disease and leptospirosis. If your pet is at higher risk for these diseases, we can help to protect them.
Is there a schedule for how often to vaccinate a dog?
Each year, your dog should visit their doctor for their annual wellness exam. During this exam, the vaccines your dog is due for will be discussed.
Why is it important to vaccinate your dog?
Vaccines are just one way you can ensure your pet has a long and healthy life. Vaccines prevent illnesses by producing an immune response should your pet come in contact with a disease. If your pet is not protected by these vaccines and does come in contact with various viruses, they can become very sick and depend on the disease may not be able to recover.
How much do dog vaccinations cost?
At the time of your dog’s annual exam, the veterinarian will discuss what vaccines your pet requires, as dogs do not receive the same vaccine year after year.
Riverview Animal Hospital has recently undergone a lot of changes! Renovations have turned our hospital into a completely new one! Not only have we doubled in size, but we have added new departments within the treatment areas of the hospital.

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.
