Core vaccines required
When you get a new dog, irrespective of the age or the background of the dog, make an appointment with the vet for a check up. Get an vaccine card going, and ensure your dog is covered against all preventable diseases. The core vaccines include, but are not limited to:
- Canine Distemper
- Kennel Cough
There are other vaccines or medications that your puppy or dog may need, depending on where the pup has come from. Medication against heart worm may be needed, because when diseases progress pet may need a additional veterinary care. Prevention is almost always better than a cure.
Don’t forget your boosters
Chat to your vet, let him or her examine your new (or old) and gorgeous dog, and let them communicate to you what needs to be done and when. Vaccinate on time, keep them up to date, do all your boosters and enjoy a lifetime of health, fun and happiness with your dogs. As a pet owner, you already know it’s worth it!
