Rules for vaccination
Physicians veterinarians recommend that animal owners comply with three very important organizational rules.$
The first involves the healthy state of your pet. Only such an animal should receive the necessary injection, which is essentially the introduction of a more attenuated strain of infection into the body. The veterinarian to whom the animal was brought to be vaccinated should definitely learn from the host whether the dog is eating well, what is the condition of the stool, as well as measure the temperature of the animal.
It’s not worth thinking that if your dog doesn’t go outside then its body can’t be susceptible to infections. After all, the disease is easy to bring to the house on street shoes or on clothes.
The second rule is to conduct preparatory procedures designed to rid the animal of internal and external parasites. They are mites, fleas, Vlasoeaters, as well as various helminths and others. The animal should be completely spared the parasites 1-2 weeks before the intended vaccination, a laboratory analysis of feces can confirm.
The third concerns bitches potentially ready for viscous in the next few months (1 to 2). Inoculation during knitting may affect the health of future offspring.
Dog vaccination schedule
Veterinarians recommend doing the first inoculation of a pet as early as 8-9 week of life. Then, as early as week 12-14, it is necessary to re-vaccinate the dog.
Re-inoculation cannot be done earlier than 12 weeks, as otherwise, the development of immunity and protection against infections can be stopped because of the large content in the puppy’s blood of antibodies obtained from the mother’s milk.
It should not be forgotten that within 10-14 days, passed after vaccination, it is necessary to observe very seriously the condition of the puppy’s health. It’s all about the body being weakened and susceptible to potential contamination. That is, it is not necessary to think that, after an hour after carrying out a vaccination, you can safely run to the street where the dog doesn’t “hook up” something bad. Doctors also don’t recommend bathing a just-inoculated puppy.
Further vaccination should be repeated after a year and then every 12 months of the dog’s life.
Separately, dogs are vaccinated against rabies. The first vaccination must be performed at the age of 12-14 weeks, along with the main one, and then repeated after 12 months and so every year.
Being vaccinated against rabies is also a great stress for the animal’s body. Therefore, it should not be forgotten that in the period from one and a half to two weeks that have passed from her, the animal must be limited in terms of physical exertion, the duration of walks, and not in any way hypothermia ( bathing or walking in low temperatures are not acceptable).
