All Puppies and kittens will most often be born with some degree of passive immunity that they receive from their mother’s milk. Unfortunately, this protection will disappear over the next few weeks to months.
To insure that your Puppy or kitten receives the best possible protection against the more common infectious diseases they should receive their first vaccine beginning at 6 – 8 weeks of age.
Booster inoculations should then continue every 3 - 4 weeks until they are 16 - 20 weeks old. Pets over 12 weeks only need 2 sets of inoculation, 3 – 4 weeks apart. Your Puppy or kitten is not considered to have a good immunity toward these diseases until they have reached 16 – 20 weeks of age.
There are many different types of vaccines and they are all designed to cover very specific diseases. Not all will be applicable to your pet. Our veterinarians will work with you to determine the best vaccination protocol for your pet, and lifestyle.
