Wolfdog Vaccination Schedule for Puppy's First Year

Your new puppy definitely needs a series of vaccinations in the first year of life to protect him from many dangerous diseases as his WOLFDOG immune system develops. Different veterinarians recommend slightly different vaccination schedules and vaccines according to the specific dog’s risk factors.  Keep in mind, sometimes they can over vaccinate the animals too!  We still believe a Wolfdog should have a

Rabies shot, due to the fact it is a mixture of both wolf and dog.  Of course you will hear that Rabies vaccination is not effective of wolves, however this is a wolfdog, it is better to be safe than sorry.  Also note, most counties require dogs to have a Rabies vaccination or proof of before you can get a dog license.

needs based on your specific breed and its needs, the particular region of the country in which you live, and your individual circumstances, also laws that apply in your county.  In general, however, the first-year vaccination schedule for puppies usually resembles the schedule in the table here.  Please note that puppies need not be to social with strange animals, or at dog parks until they have had a few serious of vaccinations.  Their immune systems are very sensitive, especially to Parvo, which can kill your pup.

Getting your adult dog vaccinated may be more controversial than you think and should be studied before you take the leap and sold on doing so by the vet.  Some people, including many vets, believe adult pets are over vaccinated and think that too many vaccinations pose health risks.  This idea I support!..this is due to the preservatives used in the suspension, which would contain Mercury.

Others believe vaccinations should be performed yearly to keep dangerous diseases like distemper from getting a hold on the pet population like they did in decades past, but very rare indeed.

IMG 6853 Your adult dog may not need annual vaccinations and can instead have titer tests, — tests that check a dog’s immunity levels — to determine exactly which vaccinations are needed. One exception is the rabies vaccine, which is regulated by law and may be required every one to three years, depending on where you live and the type of rabies vaccine the vet uses.

You can indeed vaccinate your own pooch. It is much more cost effective. I use Thomas laboratories for our vet supplies for over 20 years! You can get the 7 and 1 for around 4 dollars. A great deal!...So, there is never a excuse for not taking care of your animals!  The Rabies shot has to be given by your vet, and often the local counties have clinics that are also low cost.  There should never be a barrier of monies that keep you from keeping your pet healthy.  It will just require some research and effort on your part.
