I adopted a puppy and she is 4 months old, she was found so they have no idea what shots or if she has even had any shots yet. I buy the shots myself, so I gave her one yesterday. How many more do I need to give her and how long do I need to wait between each shot before I give her the next one?
3 DHLPP (distemper combo) vaccines given 3 to 4 weeks apart.
2 Lyme vaccines given 3 weeks apart.
1 Rabies to be given last, after all the other vaccines have already been given.
Do not give more than 2 vaccines at a time; for instance, give the second DHLPP and the first Lyme vaccine together but no others, than wait 3 weeks to give the last DHLPP and the last Lyme. After another 3 weeks Bordetella can be given. 3 weeks after that give Rabies.
