Vaccinations

At the O'Neill Veterinary Clinic, we recommend the following vaccination protocols for our patients. Not every vaccination protocol will apply to every animal - occasionally more or less frequent vaccination may be recommended. In addition, certain situations such as travel, an outbreak of a certain disease, or lifestyle may require vaccination on a different schedule or for additional diseases. If you have any questions regarding vaccination, please contact one of the doctors to discuss your animal's individual needs.
