All puppies need at least two vaccines. They can start their primary vaccinations from 6 weeks old and can complete the course as early as 10-12 weeks of age. We also recommend a vaccine at 16-18 weeks of age. The first annual booster will then be due when your puppy is 16 months of age. We can advise you what your puppy needs and when, depending on whether they have received any vaccinations before coming to you.
These vaccinations protect puppies and adult dogs from life threatening diseases, the most common of these being parvovirus. If a puppy is not fully vaccinated it is dangerous for them to mix with other dogs or to be in public places. It is a common misconception that puppies can only get sick from direct contact with other dogs.
If you are not sure if your puppy has had a full set of vaccinations call into us with your vaccination record and we can advise you. On completing puppy vaccinations every adult dog is then given one booster vaccine per year, to ensure continued protection.
