4/19/06 6 WEEKS Examination (for general health) DHP-PV-CV (1st for distemper parvo/hepatitus/parainfluenza-parvo-carona) Fecal Flotation (for parasites) Heartworm Prevention Flea & Tick Prevention 9 WEEKS Examination DHP-PV-CV (2nd) Fecal Flotation Heartworm Prevention Flea & Tick Prevention 12 WEEKS Examination DHP-PV-CV (3rd) Bordetella (Kennel Cough) Fecal Flotation Heartworm Prevention Flea & Tick Prevention 15 WEEKS Examination Parvo Vaccine Rabies - 1 Year (required for every pet in the state of Kentucky) Heartworm Prevention Flea & Tick Prevention NOTES Puppies can be spayed or neutered as early as 6 months old. Rabies booster shots are one year later and every three years after that. The DHP-PV-CV vaccination or puppy shot protects pups against upper respiratory and gastrointestinal viral diseases. Hope this helps. ;0) Tony

8/3/06 I do not vaccinate before 8 weeks of age because studies have shown that the mothers' antibodies are still present in the puppies' blood and may interfere with the effectiveness of the vaccine. We reccomend vaccinating at 8 weeks and 12 weeks for at least distemper hepatitis parinfluenza and parvo and leptospirosis and corona if possible (some Vets don't use these vaccines). In addition to that booster, you also need Bordetella at 12 weeks. The intra nasal is more effective as it works at the site that's usually affected in the case of kennel cough and it doesn't need to be boostered. The intramuscular or subcutaneous shot has to be boostered and isn't as effective in our opinion. At 16 weeks you need the DHPP and Rabies. After that not until the dog is a year of age. We recommend the 3 year Rabies... Cassidy
