Puppy Care: Vaccinations

Vaccination is an important way of preventing disease in your puppy. We recommend that all dogs are vaccinated against parvovirus, distemper and infectious hepatitis. These are all potentially fatal diseases. We also recommend vaccinating against two of the organisms involved in canine cough – Parainfluenza virus and Bordetella bronchiseptica. These diseases are all covered in the C5 vaccination.

Puppies require an initial course of 3 injections:

  • Initial puppy C3 (Due at 8 weeks)
  • Second puppy C5 (Due at 12 weeks)
  • Third puppy C5 (Due at 16 weeks)

After the initial course, we recommend that your puppy comes in for an annual booster vaccination to ensure ongoing protection.
