Common Vaccination Questions

Why are vaccines important?

Vaccinations are vital to the health and protection of your pet and serve as a preventive measure in combating viral diseases like Parvovirus, Parainfluenza virus, Distemper, Leptospirosis, Kennel Cough, Canine Influenza, Panleukopenia, Feline Leukemia Virus, and Rabies.

When should my pet be vaccinated?

Vaccinations are particularly important for young pets as their immune systems have not fully developed. The puppy/kitten vaccine series typically begins at 6-8 weeks of age and boosters are administered until 4-5 months of age, then annually. Some adult vaccines can last as long as 3 years, clinic staff will be happy to let you know if/when your pet qualifies for a 3 year vaccine. Our doctors will work with you to develop an appropriate vaccination plan for your pet(s).

Spokane veterinary clinic was the most professional vet I have ever dealt with. Got me in, in a reasonable timely manner. These are my new go-to!
They got my sick dog In asap! They provided an amazing service and I will be switching my vet to K9cc. My dog is feeling better and back to him old self
Wow! So pleased with the folks at Spokane Veterinary Clinc. We had a severe pooch Emergency. They took him in right away. Great friendly staff. Very fair with the cost! Recommend highly! Oliver is doing great!
I recently had an appointment with Dr. Kappes. I would like to say Dr. Kappes did an amazing job with my dogs. Her and her staff were extremely friendly and helpful and her office was very clean. I could not have asked for a better experience.
Dr. Bynum is exceptional at what he does. I've never had a vet (or human doctor, for that matter) with a better bedside manner. He spent so much time with us, listening to my stories (which I'm sure is a regular part of his job with overly detailed, fur-parents) and considering our competing needs. He and his staff are prompt, considerate, compassionate and conscious of the final cost to your family. Dr. Bynum takes a preventative approach and is willing to preempt and intervene before the situation becomes one that requires much more expensive treatments.My sweet golden retriever contracted aspirational pneumonia over the holidays and needed to be hospitalized with oxygen tank treatment at a downtown emergency vet. He was in the hospital for 1 day (24 hours) resulting in an almost $5,000 bill. The emergency hospital did a great job, no shade to them, it's costly to monitor a 7 month old puppy as dutifully and throughly as they did. And I'm so grateful for it as I love my dog very much - he was extremely sick. He took a down turn from sniffling (still playful and eating & drinking) to labored breathing and lethargy - overnight.Dr. Bynum is our vet so when I took Elijah to see him 2 weeks later (following the emergency room visit) for ex-rays and follow up, he let me tell him all about our experience, in great detail: how emotionally difficult and costly and just awful to have to pay all that money to be so scared for your dog's life, etc. He didn't rush me, nor did he make me feel like he was "indulging me"; he was genuinely concerned and interested in the non-medical parts of our experience and the circumstances leading up to it. He told me that I should feel free to call the office anytime if either of my dogs exhibited any of the symptoms I'd observed in the days leading up to Elijah's hospitalization; and if the situation calls for it (possibly with an x-ray, if needed), he would be happy to prescribe antibiotics long before we get to the point of hospitalization. Do yourself a favor and go see him - he is simply the best, bar none.Thank you Spokane Veterinary Clinic! You are truly an invaluable partner to your fur-parent clients and their babies/your patients.
The staff here always takes such great care of my puppy. They always check in with me to see how things have been since our last visit and answer any questions I have. I always feel confident that my baby is in good hands.
Dr. Bynum and the staff are excellent. We have our first frenchy ever and have had the most positive and informative experience with Spokane Veterinary Clinic.
My dogs love this clinic Dr and the staff are always friendly and professional. Highly recommend to anyone looking for superior quality care for their fur babies.
I had such a wonderful experience. The staff is wonderful and kind especially when your fur baby is stressed. I highly recommended Spokane veterinary clinic for all your animals needs! I have recommended this clinic to my friends and family and they are impressed with the service they received.
Great, quality care of the animals. Great Doggy Daycare! Lots of social interactions with the pups. The crew is very attentive and seem to love the animals!
I cant say enough positive things about Spokane Veterinary Clinic! I brought our new puppy in and couldn't be happier with the vets and their staff. They were knowledgeable about the services that were provided also took the time to make sure I understood everything.
Dr Dynum is the best vet in the Pacific Northwest
Dr Bynum provides excellent reproductive services. He goes above and beyond to accommodate last minute collections. Knowledgeable and caring service.
Ever since they have opened I've brought my cats and dog here, they are very friendly, professional, and caring. I personally wouldn't use another vet!
Spokane veterinary clinic is great! It is a clean and professional environment with compassionate staff!
Dr Bynum is extremely easy to work with, professional and kind. My puppy was scared to death for her first appointment ever with an ear infection. They were so good with her and made her feel at ease. His schedule was flexible with my crazy schedule which made it that much easier for me to get her in to see him. The pricing is extremely fair and he was great about educating me on what was going on with her also. You can tell his passion is animals, I’m so happy to have found him!!!
We have been taking our little girl to K9CC for several years and love how Nick and his staff take care of her. Recently she stopped eating regularly so we took her to the new vet clinic on site. They did a complete evaluation. We followed the recommendations and our little girl is doing much better. Would definitly recommend. Spokane Veterinary Clinic
We can’t say enough good things about the care and dedication that Dr and all of his team has for animals. From the front staff on, everyone is always professional and eager to help with all of our needs.
I’m very nervous when it comes to taking my puppy girl anywhere. I was in need of a new vet and reached out to the Spokane Veterinary Clinic and from the initial phone call I felt welcome and comfortable with their staff. Then when bringing my girl in for her first visit she was very comfortable and happy. She wasn’t nervous the way the Dr handled her put us both at ease. And he absolutely knows what he talking about. 5 stars and glad to have a new vet home
After our long time veterinarian retired we decided to look around into other clinics. We found Spokane Veterinary Clinic to be very comfortable and friendly- At our appointment, our pet was well loved, and the vet was very informative! We look forward to building a new relationship with this wonderful clinic.
Spokane Veterinary Clinic is a state of the art facility where your pet’s comfort and health is top priority. The professionals there listen to your concerns and base their care on your animal’s needs as well as their general health management. I highly recommend it.
We brought our schnauzer in who wasn't eating. They were very thorough and explained things in a way I could understand. Our little "Higgins" is doing great now. Would definetly recommend.
