Dog Vaccination

Adult Dog Vaccinations

Canine Preventive Health Care and Vaccinations: We see your dog annually for a thorough physical examination. During this consultation, the veterinarian will review their overall health, diet, exercise and activities. We then recommend the core and elective vaccines that are required based on an individual dog’s age, medical history, and lifestyle. We will send you a reminder each year when your dog is due for an annual check-up and/or booster vaccine. The focus is on disease prevention and pro-active, customized health care plans for dogs in all stages of life.

What types of vaccinations does your hospital offer for adult dogs?


Vaccines fall into two basic categories. Core vaccines that protect dogs from diseases to which they are all at risk no matter what their lifestyle including:

  • Rabies – city by-laws require that all pets be vaccinated for rabies.
  • Distemper.
  • Canine Parvo Virus.
  • Adenovirus.
  • Parainfluenza Type II.

Non-core or elective vaccines include:

  • Bordetella (Canine cough infection) – this vaccine is often recommended for dogs that visit off-leash areas; boarding kennels or goes with a dog walker in a pack.
  • Leptospirosis – For dogs that may be at risk due to travel or lifestyle.

Is there a schedule for how often to vaccinate a dog?


It is important to follow to the vaccine schedule recommended by the veterinarian as overdue pets can be at risk of exposure to the viruses. Our vaccination programs are customized for individual patient requirements based on age, vaccination history, risk of exposure and lifestyle.

Why is it important to vaccinate your dog?


Regular vaccinations reduce the risk of contracting serious and sometimes deadly diseases such as Rabies. Even city pets are required by law to be vaccinated against Rabies as this virus can be carried by wildlife such as skunks, foxes, bats, coyotes, and raccoons. Vaccinations are an important way of preventing serious health risks to your dog. Prevention is always less costly and lower risk to your dog’s health than treating the disease after exposure.

How much does it cost to vaccinate my dog?


A client care representative will be happy to provide an estimate for vaccinations when you call for an appointment. All vaccination programs are customized based on your dog’s individual requirements. All our vaccination patients receive a full physical examination by a veterinarian.

6. We respect your concerns for safety. If you prefer a curbside appointment, please let us know when you call to book your pet.

CURBSIDE SERVICE FOR PRESCRIPTIONS AND PET FOODS

In order to accommodate clients and pets for appointments, we need to limit the capacity of people in our reception area. For this reason, we have elected to temporarily provide curbside service only for pet supply orders.

Please call ahead to order pet foods and prescriptions. We will bring them outside when you arrive to pick them up. Thank you for your consideration.

*NEW CLIENTS AND NEW PATIENTS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME!*

Our veterinarians are currently seeing all patients by appointment ONLY. We are currently operating with both curbside and in office appointments. We have limited capacity to accommodate indoor appointments but please let us know your preference at the time of booking and we will do our very best to accommodate your request. Please note, for safety reasons, you will be asked to wait behind a clear screen while speaking with the veterinarian. Your pet will be examined by the veterinarian while one of our assistants holds them. We appreciate your patience and understanding as these appointments take a little longer than normal.  

How do curbside / closed-door appointments work?
Please come to the back door for your appointment and call 416-537-3128 upon arrival. A veterinarian will speak with you over the phone and a veterinary assistant will come out to collect your pet for an examination. After examining your pet, the doctor will follow-up on the phone with their findings and recommendations. Thank you for entrusting us with the care of your pets. Please let us know in advance if they have any special needs.
