Puppy Preventative Care
The number of DHPP ("Distemper") boosters needed and the age at which the puppy receives vaccines may vary depending on their age at their first visit and whether they have received any prior vaccines.
We recommend the Lyme vaccine for most dogs due to the high prevalence of Lyme disease in this area.
We also recommend the Leptospirosis vaccine for most dogs. Although it is not as prevalent as Lyme, outbreaks are not uncommon in our area and it is potentially life-threatening, as well as zoonotic (can be passed to humans). For more information about Leptospirosis, see these articles:
