Bordetellosis, Distemper, Infectious Hepatitis, Para influenza, Parvovirus infections and Rabies.
Leptospirosis is not recommended in this first series of vaccines as it may be linked to certain severe reactions
and other issues when administered to very young puppies and smaller breeds such as Lhasa apsos. Somewhat contraversial with some vets, we will not take chances on the lives of our puppies.
These shots should all be administered at approximately 6, 10 and 14 weeks of age with the exception of the Rabies vaccine which should be administered at 12 weeks and again at around 15 months.
Revaccinating should be done every year, again with the exception of the Rabies vaccine. There is some talk of lessening the frequency of booster shots so be mindful of information with regards to these possible changes. The Rabies vaccine can vary in its coverage period. Make sure to carefully note what the coverage is when your dog receives it's Rabies vaccine and do not lose your certificate as it will be your proof for licensing and for future Rabies boosters.
Additional vaccinations are available, so discuss with your veterinarian the need for any other vaccines not included on our list of absolutes.
It should be noted that although major reactions to vaccines are rare, any sign of breathing problems, consistent vomiting or diarrhea, or swelling particularly of face or legs should be reported to the veterinarian immediately. If your pet has a severe reaction to a vaccine it is highly recommended that no further vaccines be administered as in rare cases vaccine reactions can be fatal.
