A. For the protection of our puppies from an extensive number of environmental dangers, and to insure the least stressful weaning experience for the little ones and for the mom, we can only schedule appointments to visit with your puppy after puppies have received their first vaccinations and are at least 5 weeks of age. We are here to provide any information, pictures, and videos of your puppy before they are old enough to meet and greet in person! :)
Q. How and when are the puppies vaccinated? What types of vaccinations do puppies receive?
A. We strongly believe that vaccinations should be done by a professional trained to do so in a professional environment. Therefore, all puppies are vaccinated by our veterinarian. Puppies receive their 1st set of Distemper/Parvo vaccine at 6 weeks of age. It is important to continue the vaccination schedule as determined by your veterinarian until expected immunity is acquired. The puppy exposure should be limited until then.
