Vacinating A Dog. How You Protect
Your Canine Companion Has
Everything To Do With Vacinating Your Dog

Vacinating a dog needs to be undertaken always by the pet owners and the dogs need to be vaccinated at the appropriate time.

This helps to improve the resistance of the animal against some specific diseases causing problems in dogs.

The dogs that are orphaned due to the death of the mother have lesser protection in their immune system.

Such animals are to be particularly protected against various diseases.

Vacinating a Dog is usually started at the age of five to six weeks.

Prior to this age, the maternal immunity will be helping the dogs to have natural disease resistance.

It is always better to deworm your canine companion before the vaccination and this is given emphasis many times.



Dog Vaccination against the parvo virus is done at an early age because pups are often being affected by parvo viral infections.

The booster dose for each vaccine needs to be given at appropriate time and this helps to build up the immune status to an appreciable manner.



Vacinating a dog is carried out in many countries against the dreaded rabies disease.

Hence, vaccination against rabies is given more emphasis always.

Even rabies tags are fixed on to the dog collar of most of the dogs. Rabies vaccine is given at age of thirteen to fifteenth weeks of age and is repeated in fifteenth months time.

However, this depends on the type of dog vaccine used.

Once in three years, this is repeated.

In dogs that have not received colostrums or dogs at high risk areas, give measles virus vaccine and killed parvovirus vaccine before five weeks of age itself.

Leptospira serovar vaccine is given at six to eight weeks of age and again at tenth to twelfth weeks and at thirteenth to sixteenth weeks.

Then annually repeat this.

Bordetella and lyme disease dog vaccinations are only optional ones in case of canines.

Vacinating a dog against the canine parainfluenza, canine parvovirus, and canine adenovirus type- two is similar to the schedule maintained with leptospiral serovars.
