Puppy Shots


What Shots Does My Puppy Need?

Make sure your pup is protected with the proper puppy shots.

Recommended puppy vaccinations may vary based on your location. Certain diseases are a greater risk in some areas than others.

Below is a common puppy immunizations schedule. This covers the general recommendations for the most essential shots:

  • 6 - 8 weeks DHLPP & Coronavirus
  • 11 - 12 weeks DHLPP & Coronavirus
  • 15 - 16 weeks DHLPP & Coronavirs
  • 16 weeks - Rabies

Three sets of vaccinations and a Rabies shot will keep your puppy protected for the first year. Annual boosters are currently recommended, but be careful not to over-vaccinate, as this can lead to vaccinosis.

What is DHLPP?

This combination shot covers 5 different diseases:

Canine Coronavirus is often included along with the DHLPP.

If your dog will be boarded or attend doggy day care, you will want to have your puppy vaccinated against canine kennel cough.

The bordetella vaccine protects your puppy against this airborne bacterial/viral infection.

Discuss with your vet a proper immunization schedule. This will ensure that your puppy is protected against the most common and preventable dog diseases.
