Puppies have a fragile immune system and require vaccinations every 3 weeks starting at 6 weeks of age. Every puppy should receive 5 sets of vaccinations from 6 to 18 weeks of age. It is very important that your puppy receive their vaccinations every 3 weeks to prevent serious diseases such as parvovirus, distemper, and parainfluenza. In addition to these standard vaccinations, puppies that go to the groomer or are boarded routinely should receive the Canine Influenza Vaccination series.
