This vaccine is for dogs that are frequently exposed to groups of strange dogs (e.g. groomer, boarding kennel, training classes).

Lyme

The first dose is given when your dog is at least 9 weeks old.

The second dose is given 3-4 weeks later, your dog then needs to be boosted yearly from the second booster. 

This vaccine is recommended for dogs frequently exposed to ticks (which are very prominent in S.W. Wisconsin.)Tick prevention products should continue to be used year round.  

*Once you make an appointment you and your veterinarian can discuss a vaccination plan that best suits your pet. 


Canine Deworming

         Puppies should first be dewormed at 3 weeks of age. The deworming should be repeated every 2 weeks until 3 months of age. Deworming should then be repeated at veterinarian's recommended intervals depending on the dog's environment, exposure to parasites, and hunting habits (dogs can acquire worms if they eat rodents or rabbits). 


Spay and Neuter

        Most female dogs should be spayed, and male dogs should be neutered, between 5 and 7 months of age. We require that all dogs be up to date on vaccines prior to their procedure. For dogs that have never been vaccinated we require that they have received their first boosters as well. Spaying and neutering are important in preventing pet overpopulation and health problems (especially mammary gland cancer in females). For questions about the age your pet should be spayed/neutered, please discuss with your veterinarian.
