Our team continues to be here for you and your cherished pets. We are OPEN and are now able to provide a wide range of services. To learn more about the changes we have implemented in response to COVID-19 and what to expect during your next visit, click here.
At Oakbank Animal Hospital, we offer the most current advice on preventative health care, including the right vaccinations for your dog. Our veterinarians will work with you to put together the right vaccine program that is not only essential for your dog’s overall health but appropriate for your dog’s age, lifestyle and travel needs.
What types of vaccinations do you offer for adult dogs?
For adult dogs, we offer Canine Distemper, Parvovirus and Adenovirus as our core “combo” vaccine, as well as Rabies and Bordetella (kennel cough).
Is there a schedule for how often a dog should be vaccinated?
The Canine Distemper, Parvovirus, and Adenovirus combo vaccine requires yearly administration. The Rabies vaccine requires administration every 2-3 years. The Bordetella (kennel cough) vaccine requires annual administration for at-risk patients. This schedule is for adult dogs who have received a complete initial puppy series.
Why is it important to vaccinate your dog?
Vaccinating your dog is not only important to maintain good health but also to reduce the spread of potentially life-threatening diseases. Recommendations will be made by your veterinarian depending on your dog’s lifestyle and travel needs.
How much does it cost to vaccinate my dog?
Please give us a call at 204.444.3615, and one of our team members will be happy to provide you with further information.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Clients are now able to enter the hospital with their pets for their appointments. We ask that clients wait in the reception area while the doctor and their assistant perform the exam in the designated exam room. After the appointment, the doctor will come out and talk to the client in the waiting area.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method. Debit will be accepted if needed.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
