Vaccine Clinic

Cat receiving vaccine from ARC staff
We want your pet to live a long and healthy life. For that reason, ARC offers low-cost vaccines and prevention alongside our surgical services and at our regularly scheduled Vaccine Clinics.

How do pet vaccines work?

Pet vaccines work in the same way as human vaccines. Pet vaccines contain antigens, causing a mild stimulus, allowing your pet’s immune system to identify and fight off the actual disease either entirely or decrease the severity of the illness if/when your pet comes into contact with the live disease.

*If you make an appointment for an animal that is more than 2 months/2 pounds who is unaltered, you will be charged the prices in the second column.  If you make an appointment for a spay/neuter surgery on wellness day, you will receive a credit for the difference between the fees being charged for altered animals and the fee you are charged.

For breeders who make appointments on ARC wellness days, you will be charged the fees in the third column.  A “breeder” is defined as someone who is not a rescue or trapper and who presents a litter to ARC for services.

There are a set of core vaccines considered essential for all pets.

Non-core vaccines are given depending on the pet’s exposure risk. To properly vaccinate your pet it is extremely important to complete the entire vaccine protocol. Factors that should influence your vaccine protocol will include age, medical history, environment, and lifestyle.
Core Vaccines for Dogs:
  • Rabies
  • DHPP (Canine Distemper, Hepatitis and Parvovirus)
Core Vaccines for Cats:
  • Rabies
  • FVRCP (Feline Distemper)
Non-Core Vaccines for Dogs:
  • Bordetella – Prevents kennel cough. Recommended for dogs that are frequently exposed to dogs boarded, go to dog parks etc.
  • Leptospirosis – Combats bacteria found in wildlife. It can be transmitted from animals to humans. Highly recommended for dogs who are outside, even just to go to the bathroom.
  • Canine Influenza – This vaccines can reduce the risk of a dog contracting “dog flu.” It may not altogether prevent an infection but may reduce the severity and duration of illness.
Non-Core Vaccines for Cats:
  • Feline Leukemia Virus – recommended for indoor/outdoor cats or cats who are exposed to unvaccinated cats.

Timing and frequency

Puppies and Kittens:
Puppies and kittens need to receive a series of vaccinations starting at six to eight weeks of age, with the second set to follow 3-4 weeks and then a final set to be given in another 3-4 weeks.

Adult Dogs and Cats:
Adult dogs and cats need to receive annual vaccines. Some vaccines will be available in 3-year intervals once your pet is a year old and received all their vaccines when they were younger. To receive the benefit of 3-year intervals, it is important to keep your pet up-to-date on their vaccines.
