    One vaccination 1 yr after the initial vaccinationThen every 3 years there after.

    12 weeks

    16 weeks .

    Will provide lifetime immunity. AAHA-Every three years (compromise)


    8 weeks

    12 weeks

    16 weeks

    Duration of immunity 7.5 years by studies. Probably lifetime. Longer studies pending.

    Non-Core Only recommended where there is a chance of exposure:



    Para influenza --every 3 years

    Para influenza only protects against 1 of 8+ causes


    1.) Side effects are common.

    2.) The risk of side effects outweighs benefits.

    Vaccines Not Recommended For Dogs:

    Distemper & Parvo @ 6 weeks or younger Not recommended.

    At this age, maternal antibodies form the mothers milk (colostrum) will neutralize the vaccine and only 30% of puppies will be protected. 100% will be exposed to the virus at the vet clinic.

    Corona Not recommended.

    1. Disease only affects dogs over 8 weeks of age.

    2. Corona is a rare disease, only 1 case reported in 7 yrs at each of these Vet

    Schools: TAMU, Cornell, Colo.St., U.Cal.@ Davis

    3. Effectiveness of vaccine questionable

    Giardia Not recommended

    1). Effectiveness of Vaccine unsubstantiated by independent studies.

    Rabies are given every 2-3 years. The vet's office should send you a reminder. The other booster shots are given once a year. It's best to be consistent and have it done on the anniversary date.

    If you have a puppy...then when you take him in for his initial examination...the vet will put your puppy on a schedule, so he receives all the shots that are required.

    If he is an adult pup (l year or older), then he needs to be seen each year for an annual check-up and shots as required by the state in which you live.

    Great guestions.

    Many blessings, Patti

    They get their shots at:

    8 weeks

    12 weeks


    And then they get a booster once a year. Rabies is given at 16 weeks, then at one year they get a booster that is good for 3 years. Talk to your Vet about this.

    It depends on the dog's age and the vet's recommendation and what shots the dog has already had.

    A basic schedule includes:

    7-way immunization every 4 weeks till pup reaches age 16 mo

    kennel cough (bordatella) at 6 mo with booster

    Rabies ? according to your vet - possibly at 6mo

    Annual boosters of 7-way, bordatella and rabies.


    that's an approximate - go by what your vet recommends.

    Well, as a minimum it might had been a person. Is he like that with different guys within the vicinity or simply this one character? Would this have occurred at the same time the puppy used to be external in a fenced backyard, or used to be the puppy out walking free? If walking free, then the puppy might had been doing some thing like entering trash, pooping on a garden, bumped into the fallacious form of youngsters that had a pellet gun and inspiration to shoot him, you simply under no circumstances realize. From now on, do NOT allow your puppy external with out any one with him or looking him it doesn't matter what the elements, time, and many others. I desire to goodness it wasn't your neighbor given that who desires to reside subsequent to a nut activity who thinks taking pictures a puppy is a larger idead than speakme to individuals if they've an quandary with the puppy to check out and clear up it's the first-rate approach to manage matters? Good success, and please, please maintain your puppy on lead, be a well neighbor and do not allow the puppy bark ceaselessly, blank up his mess, and many others. (you could already do all that however you might be stunned to uncover out what number of individuals do not!)

    These are the recommendations given out to all vets. Most vets don't give you this info because that means less money for them when you don't bring your pet in for "annual vaccinations."

    Good luck
