Vaccinations

Dogs and Puppies:

Puppies should be vaccinated for Distemper, Adenovirus-2, Canine Parvovirus and Parainfluenza (DA2PP) with a series of three shots at 3-4 week intervals starting around 8 weeks of age, with the final booster no sooner than 16 weeks old.  If your puppy is older than 16 weeks, and has not started the vaccination series, only two shots are needed at 3-4 weeks apart.

Adult dogs should be vaccinated one year after the puppy series has been completed, and then given a booster for DA2PP every 3 years. Adult dogs who have never been vaccinated should get two shots 3-4 weeks apart. a booster at one year, then revaccinated every 3 years.

DA2PP vaccination in conjunction with spay/neuter surgery is $8.  The vaccination alone is $10.

The FVRCP vaccination can be given in combination with FeLV. The FVRCP/ FeLV vaccination with surgery is $13.  The vaccination alone is $15.

Testing Fees

Dogs:

We recommend heartworm preventive be administered year round, since Tennessee ranks 10th nationally in the number of reported heartworm incidents.  All dogs over 6 months of age who are not on heartworm preventive should be tested for heartworms. The heartworm test is $25.

If the heartworm test is negative, or if you have a prescription from another veterinarian, heartworm preventive is available for sale. Please contact our clinic for current pricing.

Cats:

We do not require Feline Leukemia (FeLV) testing to vaccinate for that disease. However, we highly recommend testing prior to vaccination because if your cat is infected with the virus, the FeLV vaccination will not protect or cure your cat.  Additionally, vaccination without testing may put other household cats at risk of infection. Our blood test checks for FeLV, feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV), and feline heartworms.  This combination (FeLV,  FIV, and heartworms) test is $25.
