The 4 way covers Distemper (Respiratory, gastrointestinal, and neurological), Hepatitis (Respiratory caused by Adenovirus Type II), Parainfluenza (Respiratory), and Parvovirus (extreme vomiting and diarrhea). The 5 way vaccine covers all of the above mentioned plus Leptospirosis (bacteria causing kidney damage).

Deworming

(Recommended)

Nearly all puppies have intestinal parasites. Some of these can even be passed to humans. So it is important to deworm your pets. 

 

 

Heartworm preventative and flea/tick meds should be given to all puppies every month to keep them protected.

 

If you are planning on boarding, most facilities require the following be up to date:
