Basic dog vaccinations/puppy vaccination is the most important duty of every pet owner. Are you looking forward to getting a puppy? Before you adopt or foster, here are basic dog/puppy vaccinations you need to know about to keep your dog healthy. Typically, young puppies carry immunity against most diseases from their mother’s blood. However as time goes on, this immunity wears off and this is when they need vaccinations.
Important Rule: YOUR FIRST PRIORITY must be to VACCINATE PUPPIES and DOGS as soon as you get them.
Do not compromise on vaccinations. We have seen many puppies tremble due to Parvo and bleed due to Gastro! DO NOT COMPROMISE ON VACCINATIONS.
Just like human babies, you must vaccinate puppies and adopted dogs as soon as you take them in. Mostly due to their unknown histories. The antigens in vaccines will help immunize against these diseases:
Canine distemper vaccination
A serious disease that affects the respiratory, digestive and nervous system, canine distemper is highly contagious and can cause death. This is an important dog vaccination and might require booster shots as prescribed by your vet.
A viral disease that affects the nervous system, rabies is contagious and can result in fever, seizures, paralysis, hydrophobia, and death. Puppies need an initial vaccination around three months of age. This may also require booster shots and regular re-vaccination as prescribed by your vet.
This is a contagious disease that spreads via direct or indirect contact with an infected dog’s feces. Symptoms include severe vomiting and diarrhea which can lead to death. This is one of the most important vaccinations for pet dogs in India.
Canine Hepatitis vaccination
Canine hepatitis is an infectious disease and it affects the liver. The virus causes weakness, appetite loss, vomiting, and diarrhea. This can develop quickly and can be fatal for puppies.
This is a bacterial disease transmitted by rodents. It affects the functioning of the liver and kidneys. Consult your vet and administer this vaccine based on your dog’s lifestyle and risk factors.
Corona Viral Enteritis vaccination
Canine coronavirus is a contagious disease that attacks the intestinal tract causing fever, vomiting and appetite loss. Consult your vet for the vaccination schedule.
Intestinal worms tend to affect dogs and puppies more commonly than we think. This can cause appetite loss, vomiting, and diarrhea. Untreated worm infestations can be dangerous for your dog. Routine de-worming according to the schedule prescribed by your vet will ensure your dog stays healthy in the long run.
Para Influenza vaccination
A respiratory illness spread usually by contact with other dogs. Your vet may recommend this vaccine depending on your dog’s lifestyle and history. Booster shots and re-vaccination might be required.
for puppies of all breeds
Please confirm this schedule with your VET. This schedule is for The United States of America. Additional vaccinations may be required in your country.
