Initial Shots Required

Dog Health Tip

<p>        
          Young dogs get their initial immunizations from  their mother’s first milk comprising colostrums, but thereafter will need to have a series of three or four vaccinations to keep immunization to prevent distemper, hepatitis, parainfluenza, and parvovirus. In some areas, a leptospirosis shot is included. The inoculations should be spaced three to four weeks apart, and it is important to complete the series, because the immunization passed on to the puppies by their mother may override the early inoculations. If the immunization schedule is not maintained, the puppy will be left with no protection against these serious diseases.

           There are vets who administer many forms of vaccines at the same time. This is also referred to as the galaxy inoculation. When the shots take effect, it is usual to observe some indications of swelling in the injected area and grogginess after your puppy has received the shots.
