  • Puppies can be spayed or neutered as early as 6 months old.
  • Rabies booster shots are one year later and every three years after that.
  • The DHP-PV-CV vaccination or puppy shot protects pups against upper respiratory and gastrointestinal viral diseases.
Newborn puppies acquire immunities against many diseases by nursing from their mother. During the first two days of life, a puppy that nurses takes in the colostrum that is present in the milk that is first produced. The antibodies that are passed in the colostrum are vital to the puppy’s health and well being. 

These antibodies prevent the puppy from being infected by diseases like Canine Distemper and Parvo virus. These same antibodies are also the reason veterinarians suggest vaccinations or puppy shots to be given after six weeks of age. 

For dogs and many other mammals as well, the immunity given by the colostrum loses its affect sometime around the fifth week of age.  Unfortunately this is also the time when most puppies are placed into their new homes and exposed to a variety of new environments. 

It is highly recommended that new puppies visit a veterinarian as soon as possible. The veterinarian will then educate the owner on the needs of the new puppy, advise a puppy shot schedule, look for congenital defects as well as look for signs of parasitic or viral infections. If all looks well, the puppy is then started on what is commonly called its “puppy shots.”
