Puppies require more shots than an adult dog would. Why? Nursing pups ingest antibodies from their mothers. The maternal antibodies provide early protection against disease, but they also neutralize the immunizing agents in vaccines. The maternal antibodies will naturally decline during the first 3 to 4 months of a puppy’s life. For this reason, it is important to get your dog vaccinated. Here at Sioux Nation Pet Clinic, we recommend the following shots at the following dates. The series of shots may be modified to meet your pet’s needs.
*Dogs are not old enough for their rabies shot until they are 12 weeks of age and must have it by the age of 6 months.
We hold a Walk-In Shot Clinic each month. Learn more here »
