It is vital to vaccinate your puppy against four potentially fatal diseases; Distemper, Parvovirus, Infectious Canine Hepatitis and Leptospirosis.
Each brand of vaccine is slightly different and you should be guided by your vet. In general the first vaccination should usually be given at approximately eight weeks old. The second vaccination is due 2-4 weeks later, then your pup is safe to take out and mix with others a week after.
Vets will often worm your puppy at the same time and answer any questions you have relating to diet, exercise and everyday health issues. It is vital to have a booster injection each year for continued protection after this initial course.
The Kennel Cough vaccine is also advisable if you are planning on mixing your puppy with others….which of course we all want to!
