Your pet is a special member of your family. To help them live a long, healthy life a good vaccine program is necessary. Vaccines along with routine thorough physical exams are the most important preventative measure you can take for the health of you pet. Vaccines protect your pet from viral and bacterial diseases. St. Louis has many common, deadly diseases that can live in the environment for many years. Without vaccines your pet is left unprotected against these. Here is a basic guideline for the vaccination needs of puppies:
We usually begin vaccines at 6-8 weeks of age. Your puppy will need an initial series of at least three sets of shots, 3-4 weeks apart, to produce the proper antibodies to protect against disease.
When the puppy is 20-22 weeks old (approx. 5 months old), they will need an additional Parvovirus booster to make sure they have enough antibodies against this deadly disease. When your puppy is 9 months old, they will be old enough to have their first Heartworm Test- this is important in making sure that your pup doesn't contract this life threatening parasite. Puppies and Dogs need to be on Heartworm prevention their whole lives, and will need to be tested yearly.
Older Puppies- 4-12 months old
