What vaccinations do puppies need?
You have acquired a puppy, thereby taking responsibility for his life and health. Even the breeder – the owner of the mother of your pet – you should ask if he was given preventive vaccinations, whether he was given anthelmintic (against worms) drugs. If you have already been vaccinated, ask for a veterinary card. As a rule, puppies are given to the new owner at the age of one month (1.5 months for small decorative breeds).
At this time, the dog still retains the immunity transmitted from the mother along with milk. However, do not delay the implementation of preventive measures. Let the puppy get comfortable in the new house for 2-3 days and take it to the city or district veterinary clinic. It is there, and not with a private veterinarian, that you will be issued a veterinary passport of an international standard, which will subsequently give you the opportunity to travel with your pet, not only in the car, but also on the train and plane. This document marks all vaccinations given to your dog. On the basis of it, a carriage certificate is issued for trips to exhibitions and on personal needs to other cities and countries.
If where you live, there is no specialized veterinary institution, you can do the vaccinations yourself. Any multivalent vaccine, such as Biovac DPAL, is suitable for this. Buy three doses at once. Make sure that the drug is dispensed to you from the refrigerator (guarantee that the vaccine will be “live”), check the expiration date. Read the instructions carefully. It is better to stab at the withers. Pull the skin as if you were going to take the baby by the scruff. With a sharp movement, pierce the skin and enter the contents of the syringe. Re-vaccination is done after 10-14 days, the third – after a complete change of teeth in 5-6 months. As in children, puppies may show a reaction to vaccination. To prevent this from happening, give your dog any antihistamine – suprastin, diazolin, ketotifen. Read the instructions carefully. There are instructions on the dosage of the medicine, depending on the weight of the patient. A puppy can be weighed in a bag or bag on a steelyard, or stand on a room scale with it and without it. The difference is the weight of the dog. Remember the date of the third vaccination. Every year on this day (plus or minus a week) you will need to repeat the procedure. Unfortunately, rabies vaccination is not possible to do on one’s own. The vaccine for this disease is delivered centrally to specialized facilities in large tubes. Only there you can get these vaccinations and get marks in the dog’s passport about their conduct. It should be noted that some dog breeding clubs have an agreement with municipal veterinary hospitals. They invite their members to an action, the purpose of which is to vaccinate against this disease, followed by a mark in the dog’s passport about its conduct.
