What types of vaccinations do you offer for adult dogs?
It’s important to discuss your pet’s vaccine needs with a veterinary professional. Our team is more than happy to answer any vaccine-related questions you may have. Some common diseases we have vaccines for are:
Is there a schedule for how often a dog should be vaccinated?
It’s important to get puppies on a vaccine schedule. Vaccines need to be given at 8, 12 and 16 weeks, and then again at 1 year. Then depending on your pet’s lifestyle, vaccine schedules are tailored accordingly.
Why is it important to vaccinate your dog?
Vaccines contribute to a happy, healthy life for your furry family member. Vaccines prompt your dog to create antibodies to help eliminate the disease-causing agents if/when they get exposed. Vaccines help protect and prevent the spread of harmful and even fatal diseases.
How much does it cost to vaccinate my dog?
We tailor our vaccine protocol based on your dog’s individual needs. Please call Companion Animal Hospital at (902) 434-3111 to get a more accurate quote prior to your visit.
We love Halloween! From the cool and creative costumes, trick-or-treating, parties, and (let's be honest) the candy, Halloween can be a fun time for everyone. But, there are many hazards that our pets face during these fall festivities.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we can continue providing our full range of services, under certain restrictions. As our province enters the next phase of the reopening plan, we have some updates to share with you about our safety measures.
We are continuing to see all cases by appointment only including pets in need of: vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, parasite prevention, and more.
Beginning July 20, 2020, clients are able to come into the hospital with their pets with the following restrictions:
SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us.
Face coverings must be worn to enter the hospital.
Use hand sanitizer upon entry.
Washrooms will be closed to the public until further notice.
If you wish to remain in your car during the appointment, when you call to inform us of your arrival, we will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
Beginning on Monday, June 8, we are available to serve you and your pets during the following hours:
Monday - Friday: 7:30 am – 7:00 pm Saturday: 8:30 am – 2:00 pm Sunday: CLOSED
Thank you for your patience and understanding and we look forward to seeing you and your furry family members again!
