Pet Vaccinations

What vaccines does my pet need?

Puppies and kittens should begin vaccines at or around six weeks of age. Puppy and kitten vaccines will need to be boostered 2-3 weeks from the date of the original vaccine, and in some cases, as with puppies,  more frequently. The rabies vaccine is given when your pet is between 12-16 weeks of age, and is required by law.

Adult pets need yearly vaccines, with the rabies vaccine updated in accordance to state laws. In North Carolina, the first rabies vaccine is good for one year. Subsequent rabies vaccines are good for three years at a time in North Carolina.
