Dog Vaccinations

Vaccines are an important part of the yearly care we offer your dog at Animal Medical Centre North. They are key to preventing many diseases and extending your dog’s life. Having your animals vaccinated is one of the simplest ways to ensure a longer and healthier life. There are different types of vaccines that are used to protect against diseases.

What types of vaccinations do you offer for adult dogs?

We offer various vaccines to meet the requirements for every lifestyle. We have a general core combination vaccine for dogs (Distemper, Adenovirus 2, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus), Lyme disease, Rabies and Bordetella (kennel cough) vaccines.

Is there a schedule for how often a dog should be vaccinated?

Most vaccines are required to be boostered yearly to ensure that your dog’s immune system is prepared at any moment to fight off diseases.

Why is it important to vaccinate your dog?

Your dog at risk for contracting a potentially fatal disease if they are not vaccinated or up to date on their vaccines. Any time an animal contracts a contagious disease, they are also at risk of passing these diseases to other pets. For the health and safety of your pet (and others that you may interact with), it is important to stay up to date on vaccinations.

How much does it cost to vaccinate my dog?

The cost of vaccinating your dog will vary depending on what your veterinarian recommends. Please call us for prices, and we can give you a quote over the phone.

COVID-19: Additional measures we are taking

Dear Clients,

Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members.

The following changes are effective as of Wednesday, March 18, 2020:

1. We are currently operating a "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us at 780-539-0636. We will bring your pet into the hospital for an examination with the veterinarian. The veterinarian will then call you to discuss our recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a technician will return your pet to your car and take care of any needed medications and payment.

2. We are continuing to accept appointments for urgent or sick pets, as well as time-sensitive puppy/kitten vaccinations. All other services will be scheduled for a later time. However, if you're unsure whether your pet needs medical attention, please call us to discuss your situation.

3. We are still OPEN with the following hours: Monday to Sunday 8:30 am - 5:30 pm

4. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 2-4 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives. Please call us when you arrive to pick up your order, but do not enter the hospital. Our staff will bring your order to your car. You can also use our online store and have your food delivered directly to your home. To sign up for the Online Store, please visit our website.

5. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. Credit cards and debit card payments are still available.

6. Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our jobs. We have taken these measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this disease.

Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid, and any updates will be provided as changes occur.
