We strongly recommend vaccination at 6-8 weeks, 12 weeks and 16 weeks and annual ‘booster’ vaccinations thereafter. Vaccination for dogs is very important.
Dogs age much faster than humans, and their annual visit to the vet is also a great time for a general checkup.
These vaccinations protect your puppy against some very nasty and potentially fatal diseases. The success of vaccination programmes has made these diseases less common, however they are still around and outbreaks can unexpectedly occur.
Parvovirus in particular is relatively common in this area. This disease is very often fatal to pups, and even in fully grown dogs that receive treatment.
Vaccination for dogs will protect your dog for life.
