|News for Fort Morgan Pet Owners!
We are experiencing yet another outbreak of Canine Parvovirus, and it is so very important to make sure your dogs are up-to-date on vaccinations, especially if they socialize in the neighborhood. (This includes sniffing through the fence!) Follow the above link for more information about parvo.
Here’s our recommended vaccine schedule for puppies:
6 weeks: 1st puppy shot- Distemper, Adenovirus Type 2, Parainfluenza, Parvo (MLV), Coronavirus
9-10 weeks: 2nd puppy shot- Distemper, Adenovirus Type 2, Parainfluenza, Parvo (MLV), Coronavirus
12-16 weeks: 3rd puppy shot- Distemper, Adenovirus Type 2, Parainfluenza, Parvo (MLV) AND RABIES
They are then fully vaccinated for 1 year, at which time they need a booster on all vaccines. Make sure to call and talk to us if you are unsure what vaccinations your puppy or dog needs!
