Your new puppy definitely needs a series of vaccinations in the first year of life for protection from many dangerous diseases as its doggy immune system develops. Veterinarian recommendations for vaccination schedules and vaccines may vary slightly according to  the specific dog’s risk factors.

Your vet can be more specific about the vaccination needs based on your individual dog, the particular region of the country in which you live, and your individual circumstances. In general, however, the first-year vaccination schedule for puppies usually resembles the schedule listed below.

Note:  Some puppies may also need vaccinations for Coronavirus, Lyme’s Disease, and Bordetella. A veterinarian can help decide if these vaccines are appropriate for your puppy.  Additionally, veterinarians can provide guidance about the appropriateness of lepto vaccines in some special circumstances.
