Taking your dog to dog parks, pet food stores, and even the veterinarian means your pup is social and needs to be current on these important vaccines. Please be sure to check with your Veterinarian for current and age appropriate vaccinations.

*DISTEMPER/PARVO COMBO

DHPP (DHLPP) (DA2PP) (also called Distemper or Distemper Combo) has many abbreviations and can be called many different things. This vaccine is required as a puppy series beginning at 8 weeks old. 

--WHY? Protection against highly contagious and potentially deadly viruses and bacteria will mean less risk of dogs getting sick. Let's be committed to the health and safety of all our furry friends.

*LEPTOSPIROSIS

Leptospirosis (the “L” in some Distemper combination vaccines) should be included in the annual combination vaccine due to recent increases in Leptospirosis cases. Leptospirosis needs to be boosted annually.

 

WHY? Leptospirosis can be deadly to dogs and it is transferable to humans!

RABIES

Rabies is required once at 16 weeks of age in puppies, then given again 1 year later and then every three years going forward. Dogs are required by law to be vaccinated against the rabies virus because this deadly virus can spread to humans.

*REFERS TO 1ST ROUND VACCINES PUPPY WILL RECIEVE BEFORE FUR-BABY GOES HOME.

Vaccines do not have the ability to 100% prevent your dog from contracting a bacteria or virus, vaccines are intended as an aid in the control of diseases. Although the vaccines may not prevent infections altogether, efficacy trials have shown that they may significantly reduce the severity and duration of clinical illness. In addition, vaccines reduce the amount of virus shed and shortens the shedding time period; vaccinated dogs that become infected develop less severe illness and are less likely to spread the virus to other dogs.

Keep your social pup as healthy as possible!
