Vaccinations

At McQueen Animal Hospital, we believe in an individually tailored vaccination protocol that is developed specifically for the needs and health of your pet. For example, a Chihuahua who is confined to an apartment complex and hardly sees the light of day will not require the same level of vaccination as a German Short-Haired Pointer who is constantly running through the bush in areas endemic for diseases such as leptospirosis. Similarly, a cat who is kept strictly indoors does not require the same level of vaccination or deworming as an outdoor cat who frequently hunts or fights with other stray cats.

While some vaccinations are mandatory as per the Government of Canada, such as rabies, we believe in minimal vaccination which is why we offer three year protocols for routine vaccinations such as Distemper and Rabies.
