Our team continues to be here for you and your cherished pets. We are OPEN and are now able to provide a wide range of services. To learn more about the changes we have implemented in response to COVID-19 and what to expect during your next visit, click here.
We offer the most up to date advice on preventative health care for your dog, including the correct vaccinations. Vaccines are an important part of preventative healthcare for your dog. Some vaccines, such as rabies, can be required by law. Others are just good common sense for the long-term health of your dog.
What types of vaccinations do your offer for adult dogs?
The vaccines that we offer for your dog include Rabies, Distemper, Adenovirus Type2, Parvovirus and Canine Parainfluenza. Other vaccines may be recommended based on your dog’s lifestyle, such as Bordetella (kennel cough).
Is there a schedule for how often to vaccinate a dog?
Yes! It is best to speak with your Veterinarian – they can educate you on the proper vaccination schedule for your dog.
Why is it important to vaccinate your dog?
Vaccinations are an important part of your dog’s healthcare routine! They help protect your pet from a variety of diseases and help contribute to them living a long, healthy and happy life!
How much does it cost to vaccinate my dog?
Please contact Torbay Road Animal Hospital at 709.753.0506 for detailed information on pricing for vaccinations for your dog!
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective June 8, 2020 some restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. 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. 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".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
