Does My Puppy Need Shots?

Puppy Shots

Vaccinating Your Puppy

Starting your puppy off with a healthy lifestyle includes getting the proper shots and vaccinations. Make a visit to your veterinarian to determine your puppy’s needs.

Scheduling Shots

In the first three months of your puppy's life, your veterinarian will probably want to see your puppy every two or three weeks for vaccinations. Initial vaccinations for many diseases start at about six weeks and are repeated every two to three weeks until your puppy reaches 14 weeks of age.

Booster Shots

After six months, veterinarian visits will probably taper off. You'll need boosters at regular intervals. Vaccination protocols may vary so be sure to follow your veterinarian's recommended immunization schedule.
