Vaccinations are an important contribution to the containment and even eradication of sometimes life-threatening diseases. Vaccination of an individual animal serves to protect against infection and at the same time vaccination also reduces the potential for infection for the entire pet population.

Dog vaccination

The official vaccination guideline of the German Association of Practising Veterinary Surgeons (BPT) recommends basic immunisation of puppies in three doses at the age of 8, 12 and 16 weeks. Basic immunisation is concluded after a further 12 months. Boosters are given every 1-3 years, depending on the vaccine.
Basic immunisation for dogs consists of the 5-in-1 vaccine against distemper, HCC (hepatitis), parvovirus, parainfluenza and leptospirosis, plus against rabies after 12 weeks.
Further vaccines are required for dogs travelling abroad, depending on the destination. The dog must always be vaccinated against rabies and have an EU pet passport. Contact one of our clinics for more information in good time if you are planning to travel abroad with your dog. This also applies if you plan to use a bitch for breeding purposes.
