    Default Puppy 'timeline'.

    Hi all,

    Is there a website, or do any of you guys know what is supposed to happen and when concerning puppy vaccinations etc.

    Archie has had his first and second lot of vaccinations but a few people are saying a 3rd is due soon yet the vet never mentioned this.

    I thought that he just needed boosters in a year?

    Any help would be great.
    He had his 12 weeks vaccinations a week ago.

    Thanks!

    my pup had her 2nd vac today, and is not due for another till nxt yr.
    it depends on the product used, I know of one vet in my area who uses a product which needs a 3rd shot...... so best bet is ring ur vet and ask them as they know which product was used.

    Exactly what Lillylovely said - give your vet a call. Some vets use products that require two shots while others use three.

    What the others said. It depends on what the vet used, so you're going to have to ask. Have you got a vaccination certificate from the vet? Dog clubs and boarding kennels like to see these before they will accept your dog, and it can be a handy way of getting your dog's vaccination status in writing from the vet.

    At the moment some vaccinations only need to be given every three years, and some (like for kennel cough) need to be given every year.

    But According to my vet, it is easier and cheaper to give the C5 vax every year than five separate products at 3 or 1 year intervals. Ie they're not conveniently packaged by the drug companies to be available as triannual and annual vax "bundles". And getting tested for immunity is also expensive. So if your dog shows no adverse reaction to the vax, my vet recommends annual vax of the C5. Frosty got three puppy vax shots - but that was related to the product used. And every year the products available change. At the moment we're getting the C5 annually which keeps my boarding kennel and dog clubs happy.

    Usually the procedure is 1 at 6-8 weeks and then a booster in between 10 and 12 weeks and then every year on their birthday.
    Remembering everything and when they are due is quite confusing so ask your vet to write it down for you on a card with all the dates.

    If you are ever in doubt, ring your vet for advice.

    Good luck!!

    Yeah, the vet had a printed paper that states he's due again in a year. But, with other people questioning it i thought it was best to ask.

    No need for a third. I rang the vet just to super double check. haha

    Thank you all!
