The veterinarians at South Trail Animal Hospital follow an approved vaccination schedule that will keep your dog protected from harmful diseases and decrease the risks associated with over-vaccination. The schedule we recommend is as follows:

DHPP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, and Parvovirus)
   - Given initially at 6 weeks of age
   - Then boostered  at 9 weeks of age

DAP (Distemper, Adenovirus, Parvovirus)
   - Given initially at 12 weeks of age
   - Then boostered at 16 weeks
   - Given every 3 years thereafter
   - If the first vaccine is given at age 16 weeks or older, a booster needs to be given in 3 - 4 weeks.

   - Given initially at 12 weeks of age
   - Then boostered at 15 months (about one year from when Rabies was initially given)
   - Given every 3 years thereafter

   - Given initially as part of the DHPP series, but a booster is recommended at 20 weeks of age in        certain breeds that are more susceptible to the disease.

   - Given initially as early as 8 weeks of age
   - Given annually thereafter

Please remember to speak to your veterinarian about this vaccine, as it is generally only given to patients considered "at risk" for this disease
   - given initially at 12 weeks of age
   - Then boostered in 2 - 3 weeks
   - Given annually thereafter

We know that each pet's specific health needs may vary, and encourage you to speak with your veterinarian about what is best for your pet. Please feel free to call South Trail Animal Hospital at (239) 481- 3525 if you have any questions.
