A basic vaccination series should be a part of your pet’s health care. A Distemper/Hepatitis/Parainfluenza/Parvovirus vaccine is given at 2 months. Then repeated at three and four months with Leptospirosis vaccine added. This vaccine is repeated annually. They protect your pet from leading infections and illnesses. If you acquired a pet that is older than four months and that has not been vaccinated, the veterinarian will use a different protocol.
Your pet will also need a Rabies vaccination. Laws around the country differ about when this vaccine must be given, so check with your veterinarian about scheduling a Rabies vaccination for your dog. Your vet can also tell you about other vaccinations that may be appropriate for your pet depending on where you live.
