Dog Vaccinations

Immunizations are the simplest and cost-effective way of preventing disease and maintaining health and longevity in dogs. (Please visit following pages for Kitten Vaccination & Cat Vaccination information.) During your consultation, one of our veterinarians will discuss the importance of “core” vaccines (which are immunizations we administer to ALL dogs in our area) as well as “lifestyle” vaccines (which are those immunizations given dependent on where your dog goes and what he/she does). We tailor our protocol annually to the current needs of your pet.

What types of vaccinations do you offer for adult dogs?

The “core” immunizations at our facility include leptospirosis annually, 3-year rabies booster as well as a 3-year distemper complex after full completion of the initial puppy series.

Is there a schedule for how often to vaccinate a dog?

Rabies remains the only immunization required by law here in the province of Ontario. Our veterinarians here at College Manor Veterinary Hospital will however strongly recommend that additional core vaccines be administered while your dog is here for their annual preventive care exam dependent on the age and lifestyle of your dog.

Why is it important to vaccinate your dog?

Time and time again through history, immunizations have shown to be an effective way to limit the impact of infectious disease. Some of the diseases we immunize dogs against (such as leptospirosis) are known as “zoonotic” diseases, which means your pet can contract them and give them to you. The veterinarian’s recommendation is always based upon what is best for both you and your canine friend so you can enjoy many fun-filled years in each other’s company.

How much do dog vaccinations cost?

Every dog we see has a different lifestyle than the one before it, and as such, there is no set cost for their annual visit. The veterinarians here at College Manor Veterinary Hospital always tailor your annual preventive care exam and vaccine schedule to what’s happening in your dog’s life at that moment. By asking questions such as does your dog go for grooming regularly, does he/she like to romp at the off-leash parks, do you have holiday plans this year where your dog will be placed into a boarding facility or visit a doggie daycare etc.? These are all factors that must be taken into account when we are making our immunization recommendations for every dog we see on an annual basis and as such the costs will vary patient to patient as well.

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.

Last updated: Tuesday, May 19, 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 905.853.4706. We will take a history from outside of your vehicle, and bring your pet into the clinic for an examination with the veterinarian. We will then return to your vehicle with your pet to discuss our recommended treatment plan.

2. We can now see all cases by appointment only.

3. We are still OPEN with the following hours:
Monday - Wednesday: 9:00 am - 7:00 pm
Thursday: 9:00 am - 6:00 pm
Friday: 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Saturday: 9:00am - 1:00pm
Sunday: Closed

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 and take payment over the phone.

You can also use our online store and have your food delivered directly to your home. To sign up, visit our website.

Note: Due to the continued health precautions recommended by Health Canada, we have elected to discontinue 'in clinic' pick-ups for items ordered via our Webstore including both medications and food with immediate effect. The delivery option is extremely flexible and they will deliver to your place of work, home, cottage or wherever you choose.

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

6. Online consultations are now available! If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.

Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our roles. As such, we have taken measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this virus.

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.

Your dedicated team at College Manor Veterinary Hospital
