Dog Vaccination Schedule: MyPetED on Kennel Cough, Distemper, Rabies

By Ernest Ward, DVM

What dog vaccines does my puppy or adult dog need?MyPetED Image: Dog vaccines protect your pet against dangerous diseases

  • Primary vaccination is essential for preventing the return of the once common infectious diseases that caused high levels of deaths in puppies and dogs. Boosters (repeat doses) help maintain protection throughout a dog’s life.
  • It’s likely that your vet recommends “core” vaccines for all dogs, plus other vaccines proven to protect dogs against potentially life-threatening diseases.
  • Your vet selects the correct dog vaccination schedule for each individual pet, depending on where you live.

Currently the "core" puppy and dog vaccines recommended by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) Canine Vaccine Task Force include:

  • Distemper: Canine distemper virus
  • Parvo: Canine parvovirus
  • Hepatitis: Canine adenovirus-2 (hepatitis)
  • Rabies: The Rabies virus

These "non-core" or discretionary vaccines are recommended by AAHA for puppies and dogs with a realistic risk of exposure to specific diseases depending on where they live:

  • Distemper-measles virus
  • Leptospirosis: Leptospira spp.
  • Lyme Disease:  Borrelia burgdorferi
  • Canine parainfluenza virus: Common to the human flu virus
  • Kennel Cough: Bordetella bronchiseptica

How do dog vaccines work to protect my puppy or adult dog?MyPetED Image: Thanks to dog vaccination, a number of deadly diseases, such as Distempter, are now rare

Vaccines stimulate a dog’s immune system to fight against microorganisms including viruses, bacteria, etc. by preventing infection or lessening its severity and promoting rapid recovery.  Here’s a simple explanation of the immunity process.

  • In the complex immune system, various cells and tissues work together to react to microorganisms. The main cells that do this are the white blood cells; especially lymphocytes and their chemical products.
  • The blood cells produce specific protein molecules called antibodies. Disease-carrying microorganisms, such as Canine distemper virus, have components called antigens.
  • When a foreign antigen “attacks” the dog’s body, the immune system produces an antibody that specifically binds and neutralizes it.
  • Sometimes the body can identify and kill cells already infected by the microorganism. (This is called cell-mediated immunity.)
  • Immunity has a memory. When attacked by microorganisms again, the body mounts a rapid and strong immune response, preventing the dog from developing the disease.
  • Please note that vaccination may not prevent the dog from becoming infected. It can lessen the impact of the infection, but the dog may shed the organism for a short time after exposure and possibly infect other animals, especially those in “breeding colonies.”

What’s the recommended dog vaccination schedule?MyPetED Image: Be sure to follow your vet's recommended dog vaccination schedule

  • Vaccines are often available in combinations that your vet can administer in a single dose.
  • This is convenient because your dog can avoid extra injections, but sometimes your vet may want to separate the vaccines.
  • Protection doesn’t kick in fully ...
