Vaccination Requirements for your Dogs

Vaccination Requirements for your Dogs Depending on where you are located, certain infections may be more or less normal. Our veterinarian will assess the risks and benefits on the babased onsis of specific lifestyle requirements for your dogs and advise you appropriately. Vaccination plans vary depending on your local area and the product and form of vaccination your vet brings.

Why do dogs need multiple vaccinations?

Newborn animals have not yet had the chance to develop their own immunity so they need protection against infection. They’re receiving immunity from their mother’s immunity which is only temporary. It’s steadily declining over the first few weeks of life, and it’s pretty much gone by twelve weeks. The rate of decline varies depending on many factors This is why the dog must undergo 3 vaccinations from six to sixteen weeks of age.

When can I take my puppy out after he’s had a vaccine?

It cannot be guaranteed that your puppy develops complete immunity from diseases that are vaccinated for up to 10-14 days after our recommended third vaccine. Nevertheless, the socialization of your puppy at this age is especially important. This is the same time when they are at the highest risk of infection with the disease, especially parvovirus.

It is advisable that you avoid public areas such as parks and beaches until your dog finishes the vaccination program. Your puppy should only socialize around animals that are verified to be fully vaccinated or free from parvovirus, in a setting you understand.

Do the vaccinations have 100% protection?

Vaccines have been extremely successful in safeguarding the majority of dogs from diseases such as distemper that were once common but now rare, but there are situations in which immunity conferred by a vaccine can be overcome and a vaccinated dog can still develop a disease. In such instances, the infection was usually milder than it would have been if your pet had not been vaccinated.
