Puppy Vaccinations

It is important to fully vaccinate your puppy to help provide immunity against diseases and infectious organisms. For their first few weeks of life, they have some protective immunity they received from their mother, but as they age, the protection needs to be boostered. Vaccines are given at 8, 12 and 16 weeks of age.

What vaccinations do you offer to new puppies?

At Coxwell Animal Clinic, we offer the same core vaccines that we provide for adult dogs; DHPP and rabies, as well as Leptospirosis and Bordetella vaccines.

What is an appropriate schedule for puppy vaccinations?

Puppies normally receive 3 sets of vaccines at the ages of 8, 12, and 16 weeks. It is recommended to receive their DHPP vaccine at 8 weeks of age and then this is boostered every 4 weeks, until 16 weeks of age. Depending on your pet and their lifestyle, the Bordetella vaccine and Leptospirosis vaccine may also be included. At their final set of vaccines at 16 weeks of age, the rabies vaccine will be included.

How should you prepare your puppy for its first vaccination visit?

We recommend you bring all important documents pertaining to your puppy to your first appointment. This will provide the veterinarian with an up to date history of breeding, parasite control, and possible vaccines.

How much do puppy vaccinations cost?

The cost will depend on which vaccines are required and if any parasite control will be recommended. Our staff would be happy to provide you with an estimate in person or over the phone.
