Everything You Must Know 关于 Vaccinating Your Dog

Dog vaccinations play a critical role in protecting your dog from many dangerous and even fatal diseases. While state law requires all dogs are vaccinated for rabies, t在这里 are a number of other vaccinations that can protect your dog from serious diseases that are easily preventable.

At Prestige Animal Hospital we have spent much time educating people about the benefits of dog vaccinations. This includes what vaccines are necessary and how they should be scheduled. Over the years we have been asked every question possible about dog vaccinations and we have compiled some of the most frequently asked ones for you 在这里. This is only meant to be a general introduction dog vaccinations. At your dog's next veterinary appointment, we will be happy to help you understand the vaccination recommendations for your dog.

What Are Dog Vaccines And Why Are They Important?

Vaccines help prepare a dog's immune system to defend itself from any invasion of disease-causing organisms. Vaccines contain antigens, which mimic disease-causing organisms in a dog's immune system, but don't actually cause disease. The purpose of puppy vaccines and dog vaccines is to mildly stimulate the immune system by having it recognize the antigens present. 这种方式, if a dog becomes exposed to the real disease, it's immune system will recognize it, and t在这里fore be prepared to fight it off, or at the least reduce its effects.

What Are The Core 狗接种疫苗?

Core puppy vaccinations and dog vaccinations are considered vital to all canines based on a universal risk of exposure, the severity of disease, and the risk of transmission to other dogs, as well as other animal species including human beings.

The American Animal Hospital Association's Canine Task Force considers the following dog vaccinations to be core:

  • 犬细小病毒
  • 犬瘟热
  • 肝炎
  • 狂犬病

Non core - vaccines include

  • 博代氏杆菌属
  • Canine Influenza (dog flu)
  • 钩端螺旋体病
  • 莱姆关节炎疫苗
  • Rattle snake vaccine

Although these vaccines are not considered Core, they are very important for most dogs who may be exposed to these infectious diseases. At your dog's next appointment, we will be happy to review which of the above make the most sense for your dog and make the appropriate recommendations.

狂犬病 vaccinations are required by law in most states, including California. Owners must periodically have their dogs and puppies vaccinated against rabies, but the specific time frames for puppy vaccinations and dog vaccinations vary by state. 在加州, puppy rabies vaccine is generally given at 16 weeks ( no earlier than week 12), and the rabies vaccination is good for one year. 为成年的狗, the rabies vaccination is good for three years and should be addressed at the time of the first visit for new patients. For example, 一只小狗 would receive the rabies vaccine at 16 weeks, 1 year and then again at age 4.

Are T在这里 Optional Dog Vaccines?

Although puppy vaccines and dog vaccinations are very important to the overall health and wellness of your canine companion, not every puppy or dog needs to be vaccinated against every disease. Some canine vaccinations should only be administered depending upon factors including:

  • 年龄
  • 病史
  • 环境
  • 旅行的习惯
  • 生活方式

因此, it is very important for us to discuss the vaccination protocol that's right for your canine companion at your next appointment.

When To Start Puppy Vaccinations

一般来说, 一只小狗 should start vaccines as soon as you get the puppy (this is usually between 6 and 8 weeks) and then every three weeks until approximately four months of age when it will receive the final round. 一般, if the puppy's mother has a healthy immune system, it will most likely receive antibodies in the mother's milk while nursing. After 一只小狗 has been weaned off of the mother's milk, vaccinations should begin.

Puppy Vaccination Schedule

We typically recommend the following vaccination schedule for puppies:

  • 6-10 weeks: DHPP, Kennel Cough
  • 11-14 weeks: DHPP, 钩端螺旋体病, Canine Influenza, Lyme Disease
  • 15-16 weeks: DHPP, 钩端螺旋体病, Canine Influenza, Lyme Disease, 狂犬病
  • 犬流感, Rattle Snake and lyme disease vaccines are given depending on the lifestyle of the dog

* DHPP - distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus, parainfluenza.

It is important to stay current with your puppy vaccine schedule. Puppy vaccinations have been medically proven to combat many preventable diseases and illnesses that can occur without proper immunizations. Adhering to 一只小狗 vaccine schedule is synonymous with responsible puppy care. Your puppy deserves every chance to be healthy and happy for life and vaccinations play an important role. Don't run the risk of your puppy contracting one of these terrible diseases, when they are so easily preventable.

**Some puppies may need additional vaccinations against parvovirus after 15 weeks of age. Consult with the 兽医 at your next appointment.

狗接种疫苗 Schedule

Once your puppy reaches adulthood, and all of the core puppy vaccines have been administered, 你的兽医 can begin implementing an adult dog vaccination schedule. A dog vaccination schedule consists of periodic adult boosters*, which are combinations of the same type of DHPP vaccine administered to puppies, along with several other additions.

When dogs come in for their first one year visit, we recommend boostering their DHPP, 钩端螺旋体病, and 狂犬病 vaccines as well as Canine Influenza and Lyme if the lifestyle of the dog requires these vaccines. If Kennel Cough (博代氏杆菌属) is due at this time, it should also be administered.

The Amount Of Time Each Vaccination Is Effective Is As Follows:

  • DHPP - 1年
  • 狂犬病- 3年
  • 钩端螺旋体病 - 1 year
  • Canine Influenza - 1 year
  • Lyme Disease - 1 year
  • 博代氏杆菌属 (Kennel Cough) - 6 months

Side Effects And Risks Associated With 狗接种疫苗

The benefits of vaccinations far outweigh any risks. Adverse reactions to dog vaccines are rare. 然而, As with any medication or immunization protocol, puppy vaccinations and dog vaccinations can cause some side effects. We do recommend that you have your puppy or dog vaccinated at time when when you can monitor them after the vaccination.

If your dog does experience any reaction to vaccinations, symptoms may include:

  • 发热
  • 迟缓
  • 食欲不振
  • Facial or paw swelling and/or hives
  • 呕吐
  • 腹泻
  • Pain or swelling around the injection site
  • Collapse, difficulty breathing, and seizures (anaphylactic shock)

Just as with human vaccines, mild symptoms can be ignored. The majority of reactions are mild and short lived. If you suspect a more severe reaction to puppy vaccines or dog vaccines, such as facial swelling, vomiting or lethargy, you should contact 你的兽医 immediately.

Scheduling An Appointment For 狗接种疫苗

A puppy vaccination schedule should be established during your first 兽医 visit, which should take place within a week of receiving your new puppy. An adult dog vaccination schedule, which includes periodic booster immunizations, can be scheduled after the puppy vaccination schedule has been completed, or immediately upon welcoming an adolescent or adult dog into your family.

As with any other immunization protocol, a dog vaccination schedule should be ad在这里d to without deviation, in order to ensure your canine companion remains healthy, happy and well for the duration of his or her life. Schedule an appointment for your canine companion to receive their vaccinations today.
