Dog Vaccination Schedule for a Puppy’s First Year

Apr 13, 2020

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.

Suggested Puppy Vaccination Schedule:

Weeks Old: Vaccines Needed:
6 weeks Vaccine for Distemper, Adenovirus, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus
9 weeks Vaccine for Distemper, Adenovirus,  Parainfluenza, Parvovirus, Leptospirosis
12 weeks Vaccine for Distemper, Adenovirus, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus, Leptospirosis, Rabies vaccine as required by Federal law

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.
Yearly Vaccination Schedule for Adult Dogs:
Distemper, Adenovirus, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus, Leptospirosis
Rabies (yearly or every three years depending upon vaccine type and local regulations)
Note:  Veterinarians may also recommend Bordetella, Lyme’s Disease, and Coronavirus vaccines depending up on geographical location and lifestyle of the dog.

For more information on what the series of vaccinations in the first year of life your puppy needs contact your local veterinarian.

The first step in deciding what feed or feed type is best for your cattle is to verify which nutrients are limiting or preventing the utilization of forage energy. Grazing cattle make their choice of diet by selectively grazing the pasture they are housed on, which can be of unknown nutrient composition. It is well established that cattle have nutrient requirements that vary with weight, production level, environmental condition, and genetics. It is relatively easy to determine these nutrient requirements for a specific beef animal — as well as the makeup of the forages used to model feedstuffs that provide important components not found in the basal forage diet.

We all deal with some sort of change almost every day of our lives — from changes in our surroundings such as the weather, to bigger changes that involve losing a loved one or a good friend that moves away. This may sound cliché, but change is most certainly inevitable. This is especially true in the field of agriculture.
