Our recommendation is that the protocol vaccination for puppies healthy to start in 6-8 weeks of age, as an aid in preventing Distemper, Hepatitis , Infectious Canine, Adenovirus Canine Type 2 Coronavirus Canine Parainfluenza Canine, Parvovirus Canine and Leptospirosis canine , serotypes present in most vaccines known in the market as “V8” and “V10” .
It is known that the presence of maternal antibodies interfere with the development of active immunity. Therefore, puppies should be revaccinated every 3 or 4 weeks to at least 12 weeks old.
Dogs with older than 12 weeks old should receive a dose of V8 and V10 , and a second dose after 3 or 4 weeks. The proper response to vaccination is directly linked to immune competence of each animal.
So before starting the scheme vaccination in puppies the animal must be assessed by the Clinical, who after found to be in good health, will recommend a stool test (parasitological), proceed to treatment against the result of the examination and only then start the vaccination protocol, which will run for the next three months of the animal ‘s life.
This first consultation call in the Veterinary Hospital Pet Care “First Puppies consultation” gives you the right to clinical evaluation (consultation), stool test and the first dose of vaccine, even if it is not made on the same day and usually not the are. For all these procedures is paid the value of a query. The aim of this protocol is to make sure we are vaccinating only healthy dogs, which will reflect decisively on the expected vaccine immune response.
From the first dose of the vaccine to dogs , the animal must return to the hospital every month for the next 2 to 3 months to strengthen the vaccine V8 or V10 (total of 3 doses), as well as the vaccine against “canine flu” ( Canine adenovirus Type 2, Parainfluenza Canine and Bordetella bronchiseptica -a dose), giardiasis vaccine (two doses) and last month (after 4 months) for the vaccine in a single dose against rabies.
This vaccination period is a period where we will strengthen our relationship and where you will also receive all the necessary information management and preventive medical care that will be of extreme importance in quality of life and longevity of your pet.
Thereafter the animal is vaccinated annually with a dose of each vaccine (one dose V8 and V10, a dose of Bordetella, giardia and a dose of anti-rabies dose).
For those dogs living in an endemic area for leptospirosis or have contact with rodents recommend annual booster against interspersed leptospirosis after six months of annual vaccination.
This period of vaccination and annual booster can be decisive in your pet’s quality of life and work is the main point of preventive veterinary medicine for small animals.
