Caring for your new puppy/dog

Vaccination

At 6-8 weeks of age, puppies should receive their first vaccination. The first booster needs to be given at 12 weeks, followed by another booster at 16 weeks of age. After the 16th week vaccination, you can then take your puppy out in public areas. We STRONGLY discourage you from bringing your puppy or unvaccinated dog out for walks prior to the 16th week vaccination.

The 5 main diseases that we vaccinate against in dogs are:

Parvovirus  -  a highly contagious viral gastroenteritis. Depression, loss of appetite, severe vomiting and diarrhea containing blood are
                          some of the symptoms. Death can occur very quickly.

Distemper   -  a highly contagious disease producing symptoms such as conjunctivitis, nasal discharge, convulsive seizures and spinal
                          cord damage. Treatment is often ineffective.

Hepatitis  -  can cause sudden death in puppies, whilst adult dogs can experience weakness, fever, diarrhea, loss of appetite and
                      bleeding.

Parainfluenza  -  this virus causes chronic respiratory disease. It is a type of kennel cough. Symptoms include sneezing, coughing and
                               nasal discharge.
 
Leptospirosis  -  this disease is caused by bacteria that affect the liver and kidneys. It can be transmitted to human from an infected
                               dog's urine.
 
Worming

Apart from vaccinations, deworming your new puppy or dog is also very important. Loss of appetite, vomiting and diarrhea are some clinical signs of worm infestations in a young puppy. If untreated, worm infestations can be fatal. Puppies should be dewormed fortnightly from 2 weeks to 3 months of age, followed by 3 months once for life.
 
External parasits: Ticks/fleas/mange/mites

External parasites not only cause dermatitis (skin problems) but they can also transmit life threatening diseases. For example, it is important to prevent ticks on dogs as ticks can transmit bacteria that cause tick fever. Young puppies can be treated for external parasites from 2 days of age.

Ask our vets on the treatment choices and options!
