Dog Vaccination Schedules: What You Need to Know

Having your dog vaccinated prevents your canine friend from falling ill due to a wide range of serious diseases, making vaccination schedules a critical aspect of your pet's annual health care. Our Johns Creek vets recommend following the vaccination schedule in this post. 

What Shots Do Dogs And Puppies Need?

Similar to vaccines that are designed for people, vaccines for dogs in Johns Creek help to protect your pooch from a wide range of serious, and even fatal diseases that can quickly spread between unvaccinated dogs. 

These diseases include everything from Bordatella to Influenza, Lyme disease, Rabies and more. See our puppy and dog vaccination schedule below for recommended general timeframes regarding your four-legged friend's shots. Always ask your veterinarian for advice regarding your pet's specific needs and circumstances.

The Importance of Vaccinations

Our vets believe that having your dog vaccinated is an important aspect of your pet's annual preventive healthcare. By ensuring your dog is vaccinated early in life and regularly throughout their lifetime, you can help offer your pet the best chance of living a long, healthy life. 

Vaccines can protect your dog against many serious, often fatal diseases. When it comes to caring for your dog, prevention is always better than treatment, both in terms of financial cost and your pet's health and quality of life.
