Although the 6 week old vaccine given
by the breeder is not discouraged, it does not count toward completion
of the puppy series.
It is recommended to start a puppy on
his/her puppy series of vaccines at 8 weeks of age on the following
AND DEWORM AND START HEARTWORM PREVENTION -- 8 WEEKS OF AGE
DHPP #2, Lepto #1
AND DEWORM -- 11-13 WEEKS OF AGE
DHPP#3, BORDETELLA, Lepto #2
14-16 WEEKS **SAFE FROM PARVO**
DHPP #4 AND RABIES
1 YEAR -- 17-20 WEEKS
All dogs under 1 year of age should complete
the four vaccine series. Older dogs just beginning vaccinations
or adult dogs of unknown vaccine history should receive the first three
vaccines of the series. A puppy or dog can still be susceptible
to canine parvo virus infection until the third vaccine of the series
has been given in a timely fashion with the first two.
Once the puppy series is completed the
pet goes to annual vaccinations that should include:
RABIES 3 YEAR
Heartworm prevention is recommended year
round to prevent infestation by round and hook worms.
