Dog Vaccination Schedule


New puppies should be vaccinated at 4-6 weeks for Parvo, at 8,12 & 16 weeks give a combination shot. The vaccines listed with stars (***) are optional & should ONLY be given if your dog is in a high risk area.  Annual vaccination for geriatric dogs should ONLY be given after consulting with your vet.

***Never vaccinate a small dog or young pup with Lepto.  The vaccine is not needed & can cause harsh & sometimes fatal reactions.  House dogs do not need to be vaccinated for Lepto; adult inside dogs need to be vaccinated for Lepto only if there is a possibility of traveling in the same area as feral animals.  Please always remember to read label instructions & consult your vet before administering any vaccines.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT YOUR VACCINES:
Realize that all vaccines have to be shipped at some time.  When placed in insulated envelope with ice, they can be safely shipped to you, even in the summertime.  Vaccines are shipped at the first of the week to prevent them from being in transit over a weekend.  When you receive your order, the ice packs will be melted but will have served their purpose of protecting your biologicals.  You should keep your biologicals refrigerated until you use them.
Before you order, make sure the shipping methods & quantities of vaccines you choose are correct & afford the level of protection you believe you need. 

**Biologicals are non-refundable & non-returnable.** 

To shorten your "in transit" time, your biologicals can be shipped Next Day or 2nd Day AIR for an additional charge.  For added protection, special insulated boxes are available for an additional charge.

+All biologicals are labeled- Use entire contents when first opened.

All of our handling controls are based upon advice from the manufacturer, professional consultation & rigorous internal control procedures.
