Why Do You Need Dog Vaccinations?

A puppy isn’t naturally safe from ailments and diseases without the help of vaccinations. They do have some antibody security that they got through the mother’s blood using the placenta, yet this is generally just 10%. The other 90% is through the primary milk they take in from their mother.

It is quite likely that high levels of antibodies will block the effectiveness of a vaccine and vets, therefore, recommend multiple rounds of vaccinations. It is recommended that puppies are vaccinated for the first time at around 6 weeks of age. However, the first Rabies vaccination can only be given when the puppy is 3 months of age.

All You Need To Know About Dog Vaccinations

Vaccines can protect your dog from contracting a variety of life threatening diseases, some of which can be fatal. They are often administered by your veterinarian during a routine wellness visit.

It is always highly recommended for pet owners to vaccinate their young dogs and adult dogs against infectious diseases. Vaccines reduce the risk of contracting diseases by enabling the immune system to create a defence against diseases. A vaccine has disease antigens that mildly stimulate the immune system without infecting the dog. The immune system then creates antibodies to fight off the real disease if your dog is ever exposed to it.

Going to the vet repeatedly over several months for vaccinations, and then for booster vaccinations or titers throughout your dog’s life, may seem like an inconvenience, but the diseases that vaccinations will shield our pets from are dangerous but thankfully, mostly preventable.

Vaccination protocols have become commonplace for dogs today, as they can effectively prevent potentially serious canine diseases like distemper, rabies, and hepatitis. Not only can regular vaccinations protect your pet’s health, they can also keep the human members of your family healthy as well — some canine illnesses can be transferred to humans.

There are numerous different dog vaccinations, for so many different illnesses. It can sometimes be confusing to know which vaccinations puppies need and which ones are important but optional. Here is an overview of the diseases that vaccinations will help your pet to avoid.

Core vaccines are considered vital to all dog based on the risk of exposure, the severity of disease or its transmissibility to humans. For Dogs, vaccines for canine parvovirus, distemper, canine hepatitis and rabies are considered core vaccines.

Diseases Prevented By Vacciantions

Canine Distemper: This is a highly contagious viral disease that affects a dog’s respiratory tract (lungs), gastrointestinal tract (gut) and nervous system (brain). It can be airborne or spread through contact with an infected animal.

Infectious canine hepatitis (canine adenovirus): This is a viral disease spread by contact with infected animals, their stools, urine or saliva. It affects the liver, kidneys and cells lining the blood vessels.

Canine Parvovirus (also known as Cat Flu): This is a very common viral disease that is deadly and usually strikes young puppies. It spreads by infected dogs’ blood, stools or vomit.

Canine Parainfluenza: This is another infectious viral disease that can be one of the causes of Bordetella Bronchiseptica or “kennel cough”. This canine cough affects the respiratory tract and spreads quickly among dogs close to one another.

Rabies: This viral infection affects the central nervous system and can result in paralysis or death. It is important to note that rabies is fatal in animals which is why this vaccination is so crucial for your puppy’s health. However, sometimes, there is a need for further proof that a vaccination has been administered. Thus, a titre test is performed to test if your pet has been immunised against rabies.
