Why You Need Puppy Vaccinations

A newborn puppy isn’t naturally immune and is highly susceptible to infectious diseases. Although they receive protection through antibodies in their mother’s milk, this is not long-lasting and will fade as they age.

In their first year of life, puppies will need to visit their vet for a series of routine vaccinations so they can be immunised against potentially fatal, yet preventable infectious diseases.

A typical puppy vaccination schedule begins in the first few months of life and is given 3 to 4 weeks apart with the final vaccination in the series is administered as early as 12 weeks old and as late as 16 weeks old.

Vaccinations Beyond The Puppy Years

Vaccinations are an important way to keep your furry friend healthy and safe. By protecting your dog from dangerous diseases, you can help ensure that they live a long and happy life.

As your dog grows older, their vaccination needs will change. Where puppies need to be vaccinated more frequently, adult dogs only need booster vaccinations every 1 to 3 years.

To ensure that your dog is up-to-date with their vaccinations, we recommend that you book your annual dog and puppy vaccinations. This will give us the opportunity to assess their health and vaccination needs so we can tailor a care plan that’s just right!

Core & Non-Core Dog Vaccinations

What Are C5 Vaccinations?

Vaccinations are a critical part of your pet’s preventative health care routine and protect against deadly viruses and disease. These can be broken up into Core (c5 vaccines) and Non-core vaccines.

Core or C5 vaccinations are the most common vaccine type given on a yearly basis to adult dogs. They are considered vital to protecting your pet from common diseases that have high mortality rates. These are often dangerous to both pets and humans. It protects against parvovirus, distemper, infectious hepatitis, parainfluenza and bordatella (kennel cough). Non-core vaccines are administered based on lifestyle and are dependant on your pet’s exposure to risk factors.

As a mobile and in-clinic veterinary service providing care across Brisbane, we are well aware of the exposure risks and factors of the area and can adequately suggest the best vaccination routine to suit your pet. If you need advice and information on C5 vaccinations and routine preventative care, get in touch and we are happy to assist!
