Why Puppy Vaccinations Are Important
To protect your dog’s immunity and reduce the risk of contracting life-threatening diseases, Local Vets provide puppy vaccinations (available for grown dogs too). Vaccines don’t always last forever, so booking your dogs in for a booster vaccine can enhance your pet’s chances of ongoing immunity.
Once your puppy is vaccinated, they can socialise with other dogs and be exposed to more of the outdoors with a lower risk of catching anything.
What Puppy Vaccinations Are There?
Puppy Vaccinations can start from the age of 6-8 weeks. Leadon Vale Veterinary Centre vaccinate against Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, and Parvovirus.
For the second vaccination, it will be done at around 12 weeks old but for Leptospirosis, the second vaccine is given four weeks after the initial.
Some other of our vaccines include Canine Infection Hepatitis, Rabies, Leishmaniasis, Herpes and Kennel Cough.
Every dog getting a vaccination appointment is scheduled with a comprehensive health check to make sure the dog is healthy enough to receive the shot.
The Kennel Cough puppy vaccination is essential for your dog if they are socialising and going into kennels or day-care. This Vaccination protects against Bordetella and Parainfluenza and lasts a year. It is given at the same time as annual injections and can be taken from 3 weeks old. Kennel Cough is a live vaccine placed in the nostril of the mouth, due to it being live your dog may show mild symptoms of the disease temporarily.
It is important to remember that vaccines do not promise 100% protection and immunity but will certainly reduce the chances of your dog contracting it or falling seriously ill.
Please get in touch with us for enquiries about Kennel Cough as it is needed two weeks prior to a dog socialising to be effective.
Rabies dog vaccinations are needed for taking your dog abroad and this must be taken in advance to your travelling. Please contact us to discuss this vaccine.
