Does anyone know what the second set of shots a puppy needs Ruger is due april2 the breeder gave me his shot record and he got his first set of shots at 4weeks that included
And of course he got deworming but his second set is due april second and i dont know which ones he needs and weather i should take him to his vet or go to the farm and feed store get them and do them myself
which i have done shots on dogs myself before but the owners always were friends got the shots then came to me and i did them so i dont know which one i should do any suggestions
At 8 weeks they get Bordetalla 1st injection and Lyme Disease First vaccine
At 10 weeks Bordetella Booster injection and Canine Distemper
At 12 weeks Rabies vaccine and Lyme disease booster
At 17 weeks Canine distemper Booster
then they are good for a year til the series starts over again
I would just call your vet, make the appointment and ask what vaccines he will need. As others have said it's always recommended to take the puppy to see your vet after purchasing him, even if the breeder took him in to see his/her vet previously.
I believe it's also recommended to wait until the puppy is a little older to give the rabies vaccine. The city I live in requires them to be vaccinated by the time they're 5 months old, but it may vary by area. The lyme disease vaccination is another one that may not be necessary depending on your area, I've never given it to my dogs and it's not 100% guaranteed to work either.
