Pet Vaccinations

Pet Vaccinations at Village Park Animal Hospital in La Quinta

Here at Village Park Animal Hospital we believe in a vaccine rotation schedule. We follow the vaccine guidelines from American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) and the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) when it comes to choosing the right vaccines for your pets’ lifestyle. Many of our patients that live here in the Coachella Valley also have a second home in another state and may require additional vaccines to keep them protected from infectious disease. Patients who do not travel outside the Coachella Valley should stick to the core vaccine schedule you and your veterinarian discuss at your pets yearly examinations

Vaccines for canines

    • Distemper/Parvo vaccine is given at 8, 12, and 16 weeks old. Boosted at 1 year of age
    • After the 1-year booster is given, this vaccine then rotates to a 3-year vaccine.

  • "I have never been to a more caring and loving animal hospital in my life. The staff is wonderful. The vet techs loved on and treated my dog like he was their own. The Dr.’s have an amazing line of communication and kept in touch with both my husband and I before, during and after our dogs surgery. They really do treat your pet as if it were their own, and not just another patient number or dollar sign. To see the genuine love and comfort they offered my dog and the others who were there, made my heart content knowing
    what good hands he was in. I can’t recommend this place enough. Everyone from the receptionists at the front to the whole team in the back is outstanding. Thank you, Village Park Animal Hospital, for all that you did for us and Sampson, and what you do everyday for all your lucky fur
