VACCINES, DESCRIPTION AND REQUIREMENT|
|Newborn puppies acquire immunities
against many diseases by nursing from their mother. During the first
two days of life, a puppy that nurses takes in the colostrum that is
present in the milk that is first produced. The antibodies that are
passed in the colostrum are vital to the puppy’s health and well
being. These antibodies prevent the puppy from being infected by
diseases like Canine Distemper and Parvo virus. These same
antibodies are also the reason veterinarians suggest vaccinations to
be given after six weeks of age.
It is highly recommended that new puppies visit a
veterinarian as soon as possible. The veterinarian will then
educate the owner on the needs of the new puppy, look for
congenital defects as well as look for signs of parasitic or
viral infections. If all looks well, the puppy is then started
on what is commonly called its “puppy shots.”
|These puppy shots are also called “five in one” or DHLP-P
vaccinations because they are a combination vaccine that will
immunize against five very common but potentially deadly
