Frequently Asked Canine Questions

I just got a new puppy! What vaccines should he get?
Generally, puppies start their vaccine series at 7-9 weeks of age and are vaccinated every three weeks through 14-16 weeks of age. We offer a comprehensive, cost-effective puppy program that includes three exam and vaccine appointments, including a Rabies vaccine, deworming and a premium puppy food sample for $154.00.
When should my puppy have a rabies vaccine?
We follow the American Veterinary Medical Association’s recommendation for rabies vaccinating at 12 weeks of age.
My dog doesn’t like vet hospitals and can be aggressive. Will you work on him?
With very few exceptions, we are willing to work on difficult patients, as long as you are willing to let us take precautions for everyone ‘s safety (muzzles, restraint etc.)
I’m traveling from out of town and I ran out of my pet’s medication. Can you refill it?
After a quick exam on your pet and a copy of your pet’s medical records, we can refill a prescription.
How long will it take to get an appointment?
We are always taking new patients, and always make room for medical emergencies. We can usually make you an appointment within 72 hours for non-emergencies.
I found a dog with a Headwaters Veterinary Hospital Rabies tag. What should I do?
We will make every attempt to contact the owner of the dog and put them in contact with you.
Can you give me a price over the phone for care if you’ve never seen my pet?
We are glad to provide an estimate for services after a quick examination. We like to be accurate, and we need to see the patient to do so.
It’s time for me to say goodbye to my dog. Can you help me with this process?
It’s important to us to make this process stress-free and private for you and your pet. We can tailor euthanasia options according to your emotional needs. We offer cremation services and paw prints to help preserve your memories.
