When Do Puppies Need Shots?

I would say 6-8 weeks old, but I would contact a local vet and discuss this subject with him or her first just to be safe, hope this helps! (03/20/2010)

When Do Puppies Need Shots?

Pretty much I have read several people say, different ages for giving shots to puppies. I understand that breeders give shots differently because they give all at once, and have known what illnesses run in the parents and family tree, but it doesn't mean all puppies would get the same shot schedule as them.

Right now I have adopted 4 Boxer/Pit puppies and their brother who is still with the owner with 2 others. He had his parvo shot just Tuesday and weighed almost 13 lbs. Well he has parvo and is very sick and has lost 8 oz. so all puppies need shots at different timing because none of the same immune system as one another. This week I will be taking my two smallest for shots because they are always getting sick, but, lucky me, they don't have parvo. So you know, they are also 12 weeks old. Now they were dewormed at 6 weeks old and that was so they could eat correctly, grow, and not have any diseases. That comes from the mom so that should always be done at 6 weeks old. Now rabies, I was told by my puppies owner's cousin who works at Banfield Veterinarian, they don't get rabies until 15 weeks old. (05/23/2010)
