Vaccination and Deworming Schedule for puppies till 16 weeks old

For A 8 Weeks Old Puppy

The very first batch of vaccination of an 8-week old puppy is distemper or parvo combination vaccine or a 5-in-1 vaccine. The vaccination is essential for the eliminating intestinal parasites such as roundworms and hookworms.  The 5-in-1 vaccine is a combination of an adenovirus cough and hepatitis, distemper, parainfluenza, and parvovirus. However, some vets prescribe 7 in 1 vaccinations which include leptospirosis and coronavirus. Though there are some pet owners who are comfortable in vaccinating their pets themselves but if you are no comfortable in handling needles ask help from your vet.

For A 12 Weeks Old Puppy

Once a puppy had its first batch of distemper or parvo vaccination, the next vaccination must be given when the puppy is 12 months old. The second vaccination is a booster vaccination for the first schedule. It is generally advised to inject the puppy with the booster parvo vaccine every 3 to 4 weeks until the dog is 16 weeks old. Vaccination for bordatella or a kennel cough is also advised to some dogs depending upon the breed of dog you are having. Dog deworming is also suggested for the puppies at this stage to kill the buildup of parasite-carrying fleas, roundworms, brown ticks, or skin mites.

For A 16 Weeks Old Puppy

Once your dog is 16 months old, you should fix up the third schedule of booster parvo vaccine and second vaccination of bordatella if your vet prescribes one. Moreover, at an age of 16 weeks, your puppy becomes old enough to receive its 1st schedule of rabies vaccine. You should also keep an eye on your dog excreta for any intestinal parasites and if needed fix up the third dog deworming schedule.

Rabies Vaccination for Your Puppy

When spoken of rabies, the first thought comes is about wild animals like opossums or raccoons, but domestic pets are also vulnerable to rabies-like them. Rabies shots should be administered in the first year of your puppy's life, and then every 3 years thereafter. If you are traveling with your pet across the state or international lines, you may need proof that your dog has an up-to-date rabies vaccination.
