Acorn Hills Animal Center

Compassionate Staff Providing Excellent Care for Your Pets


Vaccinations are not only essential to protecting your pet from infectious disease, but some are legally required for your pet in order to keep other animals and humans in the community safe. At Acorn Hills Animal Center in Sutter Creek, CA, we offer all required vaccinations for dogs and cats, and follow a vaccination schedule designed to provide your pet with the strongest protection possible. Our team understands that getting shots can be an uncomfortable experience for your puppy or kitten, so we strive to keep them as comfortable as possible by providing kind, compassionate, gentle care.

Canine Vaccinations

If you are bringing a new puppy into the family, you should bring them in for their first vaccinations when they are 6 to 8 weeks old. These first vaccinations will include measles, distemper, parainfluenza, and bordetella. Between 10 weeks and 16 months of age, they will receive several rounds of DHPP (distemper, canine hepatitis, parvovirus, parainfluenza) and rabies vaccines. After 16 months, your dog will need to receive the DHPP vaccine every year or two, and the rabies vaccine every one to three years (this is required for your dog by law). We also provide parasite prevention medication to protect your pup from heartworm, fleas, ticks, and other parasites.

Our team will work with you to ensure your puppy or dog stays on schedule with their vaccines, so that they can remain healthy as well as to protect other members of your family, human and animal alike, from disease.

Feline Vaccinations

Have a new kitten? Make sure the newest member of your family is protected from preventable diseases. Bring in your kitten at around 8 weeks of age for their first vaccination, the FVRCP vaccine (feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, and panleukopenia). They will receive this vaccine every three or four weeks until they are 16 weeks old. Your kitten will also need to start receiving rabies vaccinations around 12 weeks old, as well as a feline leukemia vaccination at around eight to 12 weeks old, with a booster around four weeks later.

Our team will ensure that your kitten or cat stays right on schedule with vaccinations so that they receive the protection they need to live a healthy life.
