Puppy vaccinations

Wednesday, May 16, 2012

Your puppy’s first vaccinations helps him build up immunity to disease. What shot should he get?  Most puppies receive the rabies shot as well as a combination vaccine that’s called DHLPP. They’re administered as a series of shots. This vaccine guards your pup against distemper, hepetitis,  leptospirosis, para-influenza and parvovirus.  In order to keep his immunity up, your dog will probably get these shots once a year for the rest of his life. Talk to your veterinarian about what’s best for your pet. Some vets recommend that adult dogs get vaccinated less frequently. Depending upon where you live and where you are planning to take your dog, your pet may also need to be vaccinated against corona, lyme, kennel cough and giardia.

Remember, your pets count!
