Vaccinating Your Dog

Dog vaccinations
It is important to keep your dog or puppy’s vaccinations up to date at all times. This will protect your pet against serious illness and fatal diseases. A vaccination essentially imitates the virus or bacteria that it is protecting against; this then prepares your dog’s body to successfully fight off that same virus and bacteria should it strike.

When To Vaccinate

I would recommend that you contact your vet for advice on the types of vaccinations your dog needs and how often they need them. Although generally speaking puppies should be vaccinated at about eight weeks, or as soon as you get your new pet home. This is because for the first few weeks of their lives their mother’s milk will protect them from infection. Puppies are usually given their vaccinations along with a series of other injections to help their immune system.

Once your dog has been vaccinated they will require regular booster vaccinations. All good veterinary practices will provide you with a record of all the vaccinations and boosters that your dog has received. They will also inform you of when your pet is due back for their next booster, mine contacts me by text message but yours may call or mail you.

Diseases Vaccinated Against

The following are some of the main diseases which your dog can be vaccinated against:

Canine Parvovirus – This is a very contagious viral disease which is potentially fatal. It can be spread by ingesting infected faeces. Some dogs will show no signs or symptoms but symptoms may include fever, vomiting and diarrhoea.

Infectious Canine Hepatitis – This contagious viral disease is seen throughout the world. It can cause liver and kidney damage but rarely results in death. It is spread through ingesting infected saliva, urine or faeces. Symptoms can include fever, going off their dog food, thirst, depression, coughing and a tender abdomen.

Leptospirosis (Weil ’s disease in humans) – This potentially fatal disease is most common in tropical, subtropical and wet environments. It is contracted through contact with infected urine or contaminated water and is mainly carried by rats. There is a large range of symptoms but they include fever, depression, weakness, vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite, coughing and dehydration.

Canine Distemper – This is a viral disease and is highly contagious as it is an airborne infection and affects the respiratory, gastrointestinal and nervous systems. The first stage of this disease is a fever including sneezing and coughing. Other symptoms which can develop include vomiting, diarrhea, depression and loss of appetite.

Canine Infectious Tracheobronchitis – This will be more commonly known to dog owners as Kennel cough. This is a highly contagious respiratory disease which causes inflammation of the trachea and bronchi. It is generally a mild disease and not fatal but can be dangerous to puppies and pregnant bitches. It can be caused by a variety of infections including bordetella bronchiseptica and parainfluenza virus. It essentially, as the name suggests, is passed on from one dog to another in a kennel type situation. The most common symptom is a dry hacking cough but may be accompanied by watery nasal discharge and retching.

Vaccinations save on veterinary bills in the long run not to mention protect your dog’s health and well-being. Protect your pet, and your pocket, by getting them vaccinated regularly. Always consult a vet or pet care professional if your pet seems unwell and avoid diagnosing any illness yourself
