When should I get my dog vaccinated?
You can get your puppy vaccinated once they’re 8 weeks old.
Puppies or dogs who haven’t been vaccinated in the last year will need a primary vaccination course to get their protection started. This primary course consists of two or three injections given two to four weeks apart.
After the primary vaccination course, your dog will then need to be vaccinated every year to keep up the protection against the diseases. We often call this a booster vaccination as it boosts your dog’s immunity. It is not necessary to vaccinate against every disease every year, but all dogs require a vaccination against at least some diseases every year.
Your vet will choose a protocol in line with your pet's health, local disease prevalence and the most up to date professional guidelines.
To find out the best protocol for your puppy or dog, please contact your local practice.
