Ask a Dog Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thank you for your question about vaccinating your new puppy. If he had his first set of vaccinations, he needs he second set at 11 to 12 weeks of age, so he really should get the second round before you get him, or as soon as you do. Basically we vaccinate every 3 to 4 weeks for distemper and parvo virus until a puppy is at least 14 weeks old.If he has not had his second round when you get him, taking him to the spot to eliminate as you describe should be safe if you are sure no other sick dogs have been near that spot. Not seeing dog feces does not mean there is no virus there, however. The virus can survive in soil long after the feces are broken down by rain, etc.I would see if the breeder could get that second round done before you get him, at 11 to 12 weeks of age. Then you can get the next (and last) round 3 to 4 weeks after that.Let me know what other questions I can answer.
I did not hear back from you; was this helpful? Do you have any other questions?
