For those puppies that will be at a significant risk of exposure to Lyme disease or Leptospirosis (hunting dogs, or dogs who go to a cabin, parks etc.) we will do vaccines for these two diseases at 14 and 18 weeks of age.  This will be a technician appointment so no exam fee will be charged.

We look forward to meeting your new puppy! Schedule your appointment today.
