Puppy Vaccination Schedule
Your pet is an important part of your family, and when he or she is ill, you want the best medical care available.
Rabies Puppy Vaccination Schedule
Due to a puppy’s insufficient immune system, a series of monthly vaccinations are recommended to “booster” the puppy’s immune system to provide protection from serious life-threatening diseases such as parvo and distemper. As such it is recommended to keep your new puppy at home until at least 2 weeks after the last vaccine booster to protect them from a disease.
The following schedule is recommended, this may change with the weight of the puppy or signs of illness:
- 6 weeks – Parvo vaccine
- 8 weeks – DA2PPV #1(Distemper-Parvo) vaccine
- 12 weeks – DA2PPV #2, Bordetella #1 (Kennel Cough), Rabies (1 year)
- 16 weeks – DA2PPV #3, Bordetella #2
Administration of dewormer to treat and prevent GI parasites such as roundworms and tapeworms is recommended for puppies. This can be given by mouth at the time of vaccinations.
Following a proper vaccination schedule will help to ensure that you are doing your part to keep your new friend healthy. Additionally, we recommend that all dogs and cats be placed on a monthly parasite preventative and be tested bi-annually for parasites.
