Vaccinations and Your Dog

Image result for Vaccinations and Your Dog

As a puppy, your dog gets a certain amount of protection from disease while nursing his mother’s milk. However, your dog will soon need vaccinations to ensure immunization from a number of deadly and dangerous diseases. Some vaccinations are required by law so check with your local animal control organization to understand your obligations. Other vaccinations are recommended because of your dog’s lifestyle or the area you live in. Many vaccinations work with just one shot while others require a series of injections. All vaccinations will need periodic boosters to ensure continued protection. Don’t miss or delay any vaccinations in a series or any boosters or your dog could contract a disease if exposed to it. Your dog may be cranky or sleepy after receiving a vaccination and he may be sore at the injection site. Make an appointment with your Shawnee, KS veterinary clinic to set up a comprehensive vaccination schedule.
