Starting your puppy out right is PARAMOUNT in the prevention of disease and illness. When a puppy is born they receive a "temporary immune system" from their mom called colostrum. Therefore in order to ensure that your puppies body absorbs the vaccines given properly we vaccinate on the following schedule. Vaccines are given every 3-4 weeks, starting at 8 weeks, until finished at 16 weeks of age. Any dog or puppy starting vaccines 12 weeks of age or older will only need 2 sets (vs 3 sets) However, until the sets are completed extra care must be taken to keep the pet from contracting disease or illness.
START AT 8 WEEKS- DHPP
Puppies that receive vaccines earlier than 8 weeks do not retain the benefit of the vaccine due to the colostrum weaning from their system.
