Puppy Shots With Veterinary Pharmaceutical Expert Mark Pieloch

As a professional in the pet pharmaceuticals industry, Mark Pieloch recommends providing puppies with the recommended schedule of vaccinations and veterinary treatments during their first year of life. Puppies should be vaccinated against distemper, measles and parainfluenza as early as practical. These shots are usually given between six and eight weeks of age. Combined DHPP shots include most of the same protections but should not be given to puppies under the age of 10 weeks. Rabies shots are required in most states and are recommended at 12 to 16 weeks and on an annual or biannual basis thereafter. Vaccinations for bordetella, coronavirus and Lyme disease are also available for puppies aged 10 weeks and up.
