YVC DOG HEALTHCARE CHECKLIST

The following is our YVC Checklist for canine preventive healthcare. There are alternatives to these services and their timing, and we always create a specific plan to match the needs of each pup and desires of their owners.

 

EXAM / OFFICE VISIT Annual. In addition to a comprehensive physical exam we review the puppy's behavior and nutrition, and answer the owner's questions.

 

HEARTWORM PREVENTIVE Heartgard Plus once monthly year-round.

 

TICK AND FLEA CONTROL Nexgard once monthly March through December, or year-round.

 

INTESTINAL PARASITES Annual fecal test.

  

VACCINES
RABIES The first rabies vaccine is boostered in one year. Every additional rabies vaccine is boostered in 3 years.

 

DA2PPV The first DA2PPv (aka "distemper-parvo") is boostered in one year. Every additional DA2PPV is boostered in 3 years.

 

KENNEL COUGH The first kennel cough vaccine is given at 8 weeks old. It is boostered yearly. Occasionally we will booster it more frequently.

 

LYME Boostered once yearly following the initial series of 2, spaced 2 to 3 weeks apart.

 

LEPTOSPIROSIS Boostered once yearly following the initial series of 2, spaced 2 to 3 weeks apart.

 

DOG FLU When this article was last updated dog flu was not a problem in Maine. We have some owners who travel with their dogs to parts of the country where it is a problem, and we can incorporate the vaccine into their dog's schedule.
