Young puppies are highly susceptible to infectious diseases so it is important to vaccinate them, especially as the natural immunity from their mother’s milk wears off.
When you purchase a new puppy always book an appointment with us here at Bruton Vets for a health check. A series of vaccinations are usually scheduled two weeks apart. The first vaccination can be given as early as eight weeks with a second vaccination two weeks later. After the second vaccination, you will need to wait a further seven days before taking your puppy out for walks, to ensure that he or she is fully covered. After this, a booster vaccination is required every year.
Not every type of vaccination needs to be given every year, and we can advise on this.
