Puppy Immunization Schedule
The vaccines, treatments, and tests listed below are the current protocols we follow here at Gunbil German Shepherds to provide optimum health care for our dogs.

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 diseases.

puppy vaccination facts
All the products on the market for canine leptospirosis are all killed products. Those for the rest of these diseases are freeze-dried living virus that have been grown in tissue culture in a way that makes them non-pathogenic i.e. unable to cause disease. Actually, a single injection, at the right time, of all these live products imparts good, long lasting immunity to all of these diseases.

The problem is that puppies absorb antibodies against these diseases from their mothers. Depending on the level of immunity in the mother, this transient parental immunity in the offspring interferes with the puppy’s ability to produce its own long lasting immunity to these diseases. In some puppies, parental immunity is low enough that by 8-12 weeks the vaccination to work. In others, parental immunity interferes with the action of the vaccine for up to 18 weeks. The tests that determine parental immunity levels in puppies are expensive and rarely run. So because we do not know just when to vaccinate we give a series of three or four injections so that at least one of them will work.

We only give Coronavirus vaccine to puppies because it is a disease of puppies.

Where we live we are not required to have our dogs on Heartworm preventive medication as the disease is not in our geographical location. WE ARE AWARE OF THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS HEARTWORM MEDICATION, THEREFORE WE RECOMMEND  THAT YOU ASK YOUR VETERINARIAN FOR ADVICE ON THIS MATTER.
Please, do not alter your puppy's diet as changing environment is a stressful experience and feeding the right diet is important. When your puppy arrives in his new home it may show signs of stomach upsets and diarrhea because of leaving his mother and entering a strange new atmosphere. If the puppy does have diarrhea and this persists for more than 24 hours or becomes more severe, consult your veterinarian. If you want to change his diet, wait until your puppy has settled in, then gradually change it over a period of five to seven days.
