Why should I vaccinate my pet?

Put SIMPLY – Vaccinating saves LIVES!

Protecting your best friend

One of the most important things you can do to give your dog a long and healthy life, is to ensure that it is vaccinated against common canine diseases. Your dog’s mom gave her puppies immunity from disease for the first few weeks of their life, by providing disease fighting antibodies in her milk. After that period, it’s up to you and your vet’s advice, to provide that protection.

When should my dog be vaccinated?

The immunity that a puppy has at birth begins to diminish between six and twelve weeks of age.

The first vaccination is usually given at six weeks. The general rule of thumb is a set of vaccines is required every four weeks, until the puppy is sixteen weeks of age or older.

Thereafter, your dog will require vaccines at regular intervals, typically once yearly. Some of the vaccines, we give, only need a booster every three years once the dog has reached full maturity.

Stay current

It is important to stay current with your puppy vaccinations. Puppy vaccinations have been medically proven to combat so many preventable diseases and illnesses that will occur without proper immunizations.

Puppy vaccinations are a huge part of responsible puppy care, and your puppy deserves no less than every chance to be healthy and have a happy life.
