VACCINATION PROTOCOL (2018)

Your puppy received the first series of puppy inoculations at the age of 7 weeks old. This first vaccination set is valid for three weeks (until the age of 10 weeks old). This “core vaccination set” includes inoculation against:
  • Canine Distemper / Adenovirus Type 2 / Parainfluenza / Parvovirus
  • Leptospira Canicola / Icterohaemorrhagiae Bacterin
  • Your puppy will need a second and third set of ‘booster’ inoculations (including any additional non-core vaccinations that might be necessary) at the age of:
  • 10 weeks old (2nd set)
  • 13 weeks old (3rd set)
  • OPTIONAL: 4th set at 16 weeks old



    To be as safe as possible, until your puppy’s vaccination series is complete:
  • Do NOT allow your puppy to explore outdoor areas that are frequented by random dogs;
  • Do NOT place your puppy on the ground in places where random dogs have pooped or urinated;
  • Do NOT allow your puppy to play with random dogs, no matter how friendly they seem (avoid dog parks, etc until puppy is older);
  • DO carry your puppy everywhere you go (in your arms or in a backpack) unless you are certain the ground is not contaminated;
  • DO allow your puppy to play with your friend’s dog(s) at their house or at your house, only IF those dogs are healthy and fully vaccinated;
  • DO attend a well-supervised puppy class (socialization course) if the other puppies have also had their first vaccinations.
  • Your puppy should be vaccinated against rabies once it is 3+ months (12+ weeks) old, in accordance with local laws. For your puppy’s long-term health and wellbeing, you must actively maintain regular inoculations against infectious diseases, including regular vaccinations against rabies (every year or every three years, etc) in accordance with local laws.
