Vaccinating your puppy is very important. It gives them immunity against the 5 top infectious canine diseases:
Vaccines take place from 8 weeks of age and then every year after that. Your puppy will not be fully protected until a week after it has completed the two course vaccination program so it is important that you do not take him out in public until then.
Once your puppy is fully vaccinated they can go out into the big wide world. In order to help them get on with other dogs, here at the Oswestry and Ellesmere branches we run puppy parties to introduce them to other dogs in a safe environment. They can have fun with other puppies and begin their socialisation training. The BSAVA Puppy Guide provides lots of helpful advice for those important first months with your new puppy. (See the weblink page for the link to the guide).
Annual Adult Booster Vaccinations
The annual booster vaccinations, especially the one at 15 months of age, are extremely important to boost immunity against the diseases. Every year we see cases of diseases that are perfectly preventable by an annual vaccination.
Vaccinations are important if your dog is going into kennels or mixing with other dogs. Many kennels now ask for a specific Kennel Cough vaccination before accepting your dog.
Worms and fleas
Puppies need to be wormed on a monthly basis until they are four months old and then every six months after that. In order to ensure your puppy gets the correct dose of wormer we need to know their weight so it is advisable to bring them in for weighing regulary. This also gets your puppy used to coming to the vets. Its not such a scary place really!
Here at Brownlow Veterinary Group we advise that our Flea treatments are applied every 8 weeks.
If you are not going to be breeding with your pet then we generally advise neutering them. This has many medical benefits including reducing the risk of breast cancer in bitches and prostate problems in older male dogs.
Neutering both sexes is done at 6 months of age.
