Congratulations on your new furry friend! Vaccinations are crucial to ensure your puppy stays healthy and protected from harmful diseases. Here is a general vaccination schedule for a new born puppy:

  1. 6-8 weeks old: Your puppy should receive their first set of vaccines, which usually includes a combination vaccine that protects against distemper, parvovirus, and adenovirus. This is often referred to as a "5-in-1" or "6-in-1" vaccine. Your puppy may also receive a vaccine against parainfluenza and Bordetella, which are both causes of kennel cough.

  2. 10-12 weeks old: Your puppy should receive their second set of vaccines, which is a repeat of the first set.

  3. 14-16 weeks old: Your puppy should receive their third set of vaccines, which will be a repeat of the first two sets. In addition, your puppy will receive a rabies vaccine at this time.

The "5 in 1 vaccine" for puppies is a common vaccination that protects against five different diseases. It is also known as the DHPP vaccine, which stands for:

Distemper: A viral disease that affects multiple organs and can be fatal.
Hepatitis: A viral disease that affects the liver and can cause fever, vomiting, and jaundice.
Parvovirus: A highly contagious viral disease that causes severe diarrhea, vomiting, and dehydration.
Parainfluenza: A viral disease that can cause respiratory infection, coughing, and fever.
Leptospirosis: A bacterial disease that can cause kidney failure and other serious health problems.
It is important to follow the recommended vaccination schedule for puppies to ensure they are protected from these diseases.

Your veterinarian can provide more information about the specific vaccines your puppy needs and when they should receive them.

After the initial vaccination schedule, your puppy will require booster shots every one to three years, depending on the vaccine type and your veterinarian's recommendations. It's important to note that vaccination schedules may vary based on your puppy's breed, health status, and geographic location.

It's also important to schedule regular wellness checkups with your veterinarian to ensure that your puppy is growing and developing properly and to stay up-to-date on any necessary vaccinations.
