Puppies need to be vaccinated to protect them from contagious diseases. Our standard vaccination protects against distemper, hepatitis and parvovirus, all of which are potentially fatal diseases. It also protects against two strains of canine cough. Your puppy requires a vaccination at 6 to 8 weeks, 12 weeks of age and again at 16 weeks. Until your puppy has had at least the second vaccination, we recommend staying away from dogs with an unknown vaccination status. If you have another dog, you should ensure that their vaccinations are current.
