Our recommended vaccination schedule, once the puppy or kitten series of vaccinations is complete, is an annual booster for canine distemper/parvovirus combination for dogs and feline distemper combination for cats. Rabies is recommended every other year for the average animal. Those with a higher risk, such as hunting dogs or farm dogs, we recommend annual boosters. Those with very low risk, dogs that do not leave the house except on a leash, the booster can be extended to three years. See our vaccination schedule here.
There is no maintenance after the chip is implanted into the dog. However, you will need to update the chip’s service company if you move or the animal has a new owner. They provide 24/7 services for questions and/or concerns.
The phone is forwarded after hours to the veterinarian on call. If the veterinarian is unavailable, leave a detailed message including your full name, phone number and the nature of the emergency or question. Your call will be returned when possible.
