Scheduling Puppy & Adult Dog Vaccinations

First vaccination to help build immunity and protect against common, infectious and potentially fatal diseases.

10-12 Weeks of Age

The second vaccine in your dog's vaccination schedule is given as a booster.

14-16 Weeks of Age

The third and final injection in the vaccination schedule is designed to provide lasting immunity against serious diseases.

Annual Dog Vaccinations

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.

What Are Core Vaccinations?

C5 or core vaccines are the most common vaccine type for your pup. They are considered vital to protecting your pet from common diseases that have high mortality rates.

If you need advice and information on core vaccines and routine preventative care, get in touch and we are happy to assist!

Canine Distemper is a deadly and highly contagious viral disease that affects the respiratory tract (lungs), the gastrointestinal tract (gut), and the neurological system (brain) of dogs.

Spread via blood, urine and saliva symptoms of canine distemper include sneezing, coughing, thick mucous from the nose or eyes, lethargy, and paralysis.

Puppies and young dogs are particularly susceptible but can be protected with vaccinations. 

Also known as canine adenovirus, Infectious Canine Hepatitis is a viral infection transmitted by contact with infected animals, their faeces, urine, or saliva. 

It has an impact on the liver, kidneys, and the cells that line the blood arteries.

Symptoms include fever, lethargy, loss of appetite, cloudy eyes, jaundice and vomiting and requires immediate treatment from your local vet.

Commonly known as Cat Flu, Canine Parvovirus is a fatal viral illness that typically affects small puppies. It spreads by the blood, faeces, or vomit of infected dogs.

Symptoms include vomiting, diarrhoea, nausea, pale gums, blood in the stool and loss of appetite and require quarantined care for 5 – 10 days. 

Unfortunately, this is an expensive condition to treat but with vaccinations can be prevented.

What Are Non-Core Vaccinations?

While core vaccines are essential to keeping your dog healthy, non-core vaccines are usually only recommended for dogs with specific risk factors. 

These non-core vaccines will protect against illnesses like kennel cough and contagious bacteria. 

Our veterinarians can help you determine which, if any, of the non-core vaccines are right for your dog based on their lifestyle and health status. 

This is another infectious viral disease that is similar to the human cold.

While not life-threatening, it can leave your pet feeling very unwell and can lead to secondary pneumonia if left untreated.

Bordetella bronchiseptica is a type of bacteria that when combined with canine parainfluenza can lead to canine cough or kennel cough.

Canine cough is a highly contagious virus that can cause severe and harsh cough in dogs.

Kennel cough affects the respiratory tract and can quickly spread among dogs who are close to one another. The vaccine for canine cough is typically recommended to be given annually to dogs who are regularly in contact with other dogs and are very young or very old.

This is a bacteria that penetrates the skin or gut and spreads through the bloodstream, causing permanent organ damage.

This vaccine is usually given when your dog is young, and lives in tropical areas where your dog comes into contact with water contaminated by urine from rodents and other infected wild marsupials.

Frequently Asked Questions

Keeping your dog’s vaccinations up-to-date is crucial for a healthy lifestyle and proper development. The World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA) recommend that every dog and puppy must receive core vaccines to prevent widespread life-threatening diseases.

At The House Call Vet we can discuss the best vaccination schedule and types of vaccines to ensure your dog is protected.

The waiting period between each vaccine will depend on the age of your dog and puppy.

For adult dogs, it is common practice in Australia to have them vaccinated every twelve months. However, new research has shown that some dog vaccinations can be effective for more than a year.

For younger dogs and puppies, their vaccination schedule will usually include three vaccinations in a period over six months.

This depends on how old your dog was when they received their last vaccine. For young puppies who are more than 2 weeks late for their vaccination, their immune system will no longer be as active which means that the following vaccination will be less effective. However, if too much time has elapsed between vaccinations, our vets may discuss restarting the vaccination course.

For the treatment to work as effectively as possible, your puppy should not be younger than six weeks when they start receiving their first vaccine.
