They need shots as soon as they leave their mother. Your Vet will put you on a schedule.

I agree with the gal above. Puppies need shots just like children do. Call your local vet and they will tell you of when they need their vaccinations. If you don't follow the vets treatments your puppy can die from many of the diseases animals get. Dogs get many of the same ailments as we do. (08/08/2006)

There is evidence that over-immunizing dogs can lead to serious health problems. There is new research being done on this. Please search the web for the latest info. I'm sorry I don't have a link. Pharmaceutical companys market shots for dogs just like the latest pills for people. Parvo IS a crucial shot and rabies is required by law, but not every year. Many working-dog people are finding all those shots unnecessary and risky. But, do the research for your own peace of mind.

I've lost 3 dogs to cancer over the last 6 years and have come to believe (based on what I have read) that over-immunization contributed to the problems. Shots are money makers for vets and drug companies. I love my vet and respect his opinion but will I will definitely follow a different immunization protocol for my future dogs. (08/08/2006)

I agree with these three posters. Pups get their first vaccinations before they leave their mother which is generally eight weeks old.

I also agree that over vaccinating pets can cause serious medical problems and although I too, love my vet, I refuse to have my dogs vaccinated every year, rabies being the exception. You may want to find a holistic vet who can explain everything you need to know about this research.
Good luck with your new pup! :-) (08/11/2006)
