We would recommend that all puppies (under a year) receive an initial course of 2 injections between 2 and 4 weeks apart. The first vaccination can be any time from 6 weeks of age, but the puppy must be at least 10 weeks old before having the second. We recommend a 3rd Parvovirus injection at the 16-week check-up.
Full protection from disease will not be achieved until 1 week after the second vaccination, but this schedule means that you can start socialising your puppy as early as possible. If a puppy receives his first course of vaccinations at 8 to 10 weeks of age, he will be due his first adult booster when he is 14 months old. This is a very important booster as it completes the primary course.
Booster vaccinations are given every year. As immunity to the different components of the vaccine varies, your dog will only receive the full six-in-one vaccine for his first adult booster and then every 3 years. He will get the vaccine against Leptospirosis every year, as this component is weaker and does not last much more than a year.
An annual intranasal Kennel Cough vaccine is also available.
Rabies vaccination is required for dogs going abroad.
