Our furry loved ones need vaccinations just like we do. Starting at 6 weeks of age your pet should start with the DHPPC Vaccine. As a puppy, he or she should have 4 doses and then once a year to protect them from Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza, and Parvovirus.
They are all easier to protect against, but there is a treatment for Parvo if you catch it early in most cases. At La Crosse Animal Hospital, we have a test to we can run for Parvovirus. The virus is a highly contagious disease causing lethargy, loss of appetite, severe vomiting, bloody diarrhea and dehydration that can lead to death.
