Puppy Program

The following schedule is recommended by the de la Houssaye Animal Hospital for all new puppies. We may adjust this schedule according to the presentation of the puppy.

  1. Parasite check and/or deworming at 3 weeks of age.
  2. Parasite check, 1st distemper/parvo vaccination,1st bordatella vaccination deworming and start heartworm prevention at 6 weeks of age.
  3. 2nd distemper/parvo vaccination, 2nd bordatella vaccination, possibly a deworming at 9 weeks of age.

  5. 4th distemper/parvo vaccination, 4th bordatella vaccination, female spay or male neuter at 16 weeks of age.

The de la Houssaye Animal Hospital recommends:

  • Once a-month preventative until 6 months of age. Once your puppy reaches the age of 6 months, a new heartworm preventative can be used called Proheart 6. It is a once every 6 month injection, given in the same manner as a vaccination. It is only approved for the prevention of heartworms at hookworms at this time, and it is only approved for use in dogs.
  • Reputable flea prevention products used correctly
  • Tail docking if desired at 3-5 days of age.
  • Ear cropping if desired between 12-16 weeks of age. This can be done at time of spay or neuter.
  • A well balanced diet
