Vaccinations are an important part of keeping your dog happy and healthy. The Animals’ Hospital of Levittown recommends that your puppy begins its vaccination schedule at 6 weeks of age and ends it at 16 week of age.

The following is a recommended schedule of vaccinations:

Age

Vaccination

6 weeks Dhp-Cpv (Distemper)      
9 weeks Dhp-Cpv (Distemper)      
12 weeks Dhp-Cpv (Distemper) Lyme Vaccine Lepto Vaccine  
16 weeks Dhp-Cpv (Distemper) Lyme Vaccine Booster Lepto Vaccine Booster Rabies Vaccine

 

Distemper vaccines should be given a booster at least 2 times but we will administer the vaccination up to 4 times depending on the age of the puppy. Lyme and Lepto vaccinations need to be given a booster one time after the initial vaccination is given. The rabies vaccination does not need a booster.

We recommend having your pet’s feces (poop) examined at least two times before the puppy is one year of age. As a precaution, we will automatically deworm your puppy at its first visit.
