Vaccination of dogs

For prophylaxis of viral infectious diseases dogs are vaccinated. And in our country and abroad there are a monovalent vaccine (against one disease) and polyvalent (against several diseases at once).

Absolutely necessary to vaccinate all dogs, even those who according to the plans of the owners will never leave the apartment or house. The dog may accidentally come out on the street, you can come visit, have a home with a dog, walking on the street, you don’t sterilizati shoes and clothing before interacting with the dog and you may need somewhere to take the dog, and without a mark on vaccinations this can only be done by smuggling.

For 7-10 days prior to vaccination, you should give the dog anthelmintic. If from worms is not to get rid of, the immunity is not formed or formed very weak — accordingly, vaccination would be pointless. Worms is absolutely all dogs, they can be only more or less. If the worms do not drive (not to give time to anthelmintic drugs), the puppy (and sometimes adult dogs) may even die.

Before vaccination and during the formation of the immune system of animals should be provided with adequate diet.

You can walk through two weeks after re-vaccination.

Do not apply within two weeks after vaccination, antibiotics and antihelmentic.

Not washing the dog after vaccination.

Not to be vaccinated sick and pregnant bitches.

Ten days before the vaccination is given antihelmentic.
