Vaccinating your dog is a great way to protect your dog from some really infectious diseases
Vaccinating your dog helps protect them from some of the most serious infectious diseases, such as Parvovirus, Distemper, Viral Hepatitis and Leptospirosis.
When should a dog be vaccinated?
Puppy vaccinations are generally given from as early as 8 weeks of age. The courses generally consist of two vaccinations typically between two and four weeks apart. At Dragon Vets we don’t give the second vaccination before 12 weeks of age as this ensures the immunity gained from the mother has waned as this would blog the effect of the vaccine. We also recommend a third vaccination at 16-18 weeks old, especially for certain breeds such as Rottweilers and Doberman Pinschers. After this period an annual booster injection should be given once every 12 months. This is vital to the dogs to maintain the immunity against infections.Details
