pupvaccinationAs soon as you get your puppy, you should consider getting him vaccinated. His first vaccinations will help him build up immunity to disease. What shots should your puppy get? Most dogs receive the rabies shot as well as combination vaccine called DHLPP. It’s administered as a series of shots and will guard your pup against diseases like distemper, hepatitis, leptosporosis, parainfluenza, and parvo virus. In order to keep his immunity up, your dog will probably get these shots for the rest of his life. Always talk to your veterinarian about what is best for your pet. Your vet may recommend that your adult dog get vaccinated less frequently. Depending on where you live or when you are planning on going with your dog, he may also need to be vaccinated against kennel cough, corona, lyme disease or giardia.

In addition to his vaccinations, make sure your pup is given the proper dog food and lots of exercise and play time. He should have a dog crate, dog water bowl and lots of dog toys to play with.
