Vaccine Schedule-Puppies 6-8 Weeks - Atascazoo Animal Hospital

Nelson says the number of shots may concern pet owners, but the protection is vital. A mother gives immunity to her pups through her milk. As long as this immunity is around, it will keep the puppy from responding to a vaccine. While the mother's protection is good for the puppy, at some point it goes away. If it has already rendered a vaccine ineffective, it leaves the puppy at risk for infection until the next round of boosters. For some pups, mom's immunity disappears as early as 6 weeks of age, while for others, around 14 to 16 weeks of age. To protect as many puppies as possible, vaccines are started around 6 to 8 weeks of age and ended around 14 to 16 weeks.

If a puppy: Administer booster shots every three weeks until 18 weeks of age There are a couple of different vaccination protocols recommended for puppies, depending on which one your veterinarian follows. One protocol suggests that puppies should begin having their shots when they are five weeks old. The other protocol suggests that puppies should begin their shots when they are 8-9 weeks old. Age is the primary difference in the two protocols, although the approach that begins at 8-9 weeks does have one less round of shots, usually. Your breeder may recommend starting shots at 5 weeks -- and may already have begun the vaccinations before you get your puppy. Your vet may suggest starting shots later. You should consider which protocol you think is best or have your vet and your breeder speak to each other to work something out.

As it's best for a puppy to be at least 8 weeks old before she leaves her momma, your pup should have had her first set of shots (at a minimum) before coming into your home. Young puppies do not respond like adults when given the same vaccines. Instead of making a high level of protection for a year, they make a low level, and they may quit in a few weeks. Or they may not respond at all. That is why we start vaccinating at weaning age (6 to 8 weeks) and repeat the "puppy shots" at 3 to 4 week intervals until the puppy is at least 14 weeks old.I have read that dogs shed parvo virus after they are vaccinated. My 4 year old dog got her parvo vaccine 4 days ago. Is it safe for her to visit with my friends 14 week old puppy, who has his shots at 8 and 12 weeks. I am worried about viral shedding from my dog from her vaccination, and if the puppy can get parvo this way, even though he has his shots. Can it be transmitted if they are just playing and I make sure my dog doesn't poop there? Thank You
