At Art City Vets, we LOVE the dogs of Philadelphia! Our veterinarians can help you give your dogs the best care to live happy and healthy lives.
These are the core vaccines for the majority of our patients in the Philly area. Optional/lifestyle based vaccines may be appropriate. We follow the AAHA vaccination guidelines: https://www.aaha.org/aaha-guidelines/2022-aaha-canine-vaccination-guidelines/vaccine-lifestyle-calculator/
Many dogs are fearful of unfamiliar things, just like people! Acclimating dogs to handling can improve their visit at the vet. This is especially important in young puppies. Adult dogs take a lot more slow, patient introduction to new things. Improve your pet’s vet experience by regularly handling their mouth, paws, & ears. Normalize handling these areas to reduce stress during physical exams.
