Why vaccinations are necessary
Puppies receive antibodies from their mother through the placenta and after they are born, through the colostrum (the first milk). The age at which puppies can effectively be immunized is proportional to the amount of antibody protection the young animals received from their mother. Antibodies are small disease-fighting proteins produced by certain types of cells called ‘B cells.’ The proteins are made in response to 'foreign' particles such as bacteria or viruses. These antibodies bind with certain proteins (antigens) on foreign particles like bacteria, to help inactivate them. High levels of maternal antibodies present in a puppy’s bloodstream will block the effectiveness of a vaccine. When the maternal antibodies drop to a low enough level in the young animal, immunization by a commercial vaccine will work to help protect your puppy/dog against disease. Check out our Dog Vaccination Schedule to find out the most appropriate times to vaccinate your puppy/dog.
How to vaccinate at home

Mix the Vaccine
1. Tighten needle on syringe and insert it into liquid vial. Withdraw all liquid, unless it is a multi-dose vial. Then withdraw 1 ml (1cc).

2. If a second vial contains powdered portion of vaccine, inject liquid into that vial. If there is no second vial, proceed to Step 4.

3. Remove needle and syringe and gently shake vial as shown for a few seconds to mix well. Insert needle back into vial and withdraw entire mixed contents.

4. Inject any large amount of excess air in the syringe back into the vial. Remove needle and syringe from vial. You are now ready to give the vaccine.

To give subcutaneous vaccines, lift skin into a triangle and inject into the middle of the triangle.

12 wks or older Rabies: Given by your local veterinarian (age at vaccination may vary according to local law).
12 & 15 wks Combination vaccine*: Include leptospirosis where it is a concern, or if traveling to an area where it occurs.

Coronavirus: Where coronavirus is a concern.
Lyme: Where Lyme disease is a concern or if traveling to an area where it occurs.
Rabies: Given by your local veterinarian (time interval between vaccinations may vary according to local law).
These recommendations vary depending on the age, breed, and health status of the dog, the potential of the dog to be exposed to the disease, the type of vaccine, whether the dog is used for breeding, and the geographical area where the dog lives or may visit.

*A combination vaccine, often called a 5- way vaccine, usually includes adenovirus cough and hepatitis, canine distemper, parainfluenza, and parvovirus. Some combination vaccines may also include leptospirosis (7-way or 9-way vaccines) and/or coronavirus. The inclusion of either canine adenovirus-1 or adenovirus- 2 in a vaccine will protect against both adenovirus cough and hepatitis; adenovirus-2 is highly preferred.

**Some puppies may need additional vaccinations against parvovirus after 15 weeks of age. Consult with your local veterinarian. Bordetella and parainfluenza: For complete canine cough protection, we recommend Intra-Trac III ADT . For dogs that are shown, in field trials, or are boarded, we recommend vaccination every six to twelve months with Intra-Trac III ADT.

Use needles & syringes only once!
With any vaccine or injectable medication, always use a separate sterile needle and syringe for each injection. Safely dispose of all used syringes and needles.

We strongly recommend air service to ensure your vaccines arrive in peak condition. Due to the temperature sensitivity of vaccines, we will not be able to replace or accept returns on vaccines that are shipped ground service.

We sell to breeders, groomers, kennels, catteries, shelters, rescue groups, farms, adoption agencies, veterinarians and other pet enthusiasts. We do not sell to other commercial entities, distributors, etc.
