Depending on the vaccination and at what stage you start, there are different protocols. The first injection is normally given at six weeks and then repeated a month later. It may need to be repeated again a month later as well. It is very effective in preventing some of the serious viral and bacterial diseases. These include parvovirus, distemper, kennel cough, hepatitis, leptospirosis, rabies and often other viruses as well.

Your veterinarian will be the best one to advise you on the protocol of his specific vaccine and for your particular dog.
