Vaccinations

Our vaccination protocols are based on AAHA, AVMA and AAFP guidelines. We try to minimize the number of vaccines given over the lifetime of your pet, while offering necessary protection tailored to your pet’s exposures.

All pets, whether indoor or outdoor, are required by Massachusetts state law to have a current rabies vaccine for public health. Puppies and kittens are given an initial series of vaccines to build their immunity.

Core vaccines are recommended and administered to dogs and cats to protect them against highly contagious, prevalent, and potentially fatal diseases. Non-core vaccines are selectively recommended based on exposures due to geographic location and lifestyle and an assessment of risk/benefit ratio.
