Vaccination in the Healthy Dog and Cat
Puppies should receive their first vaccination between 6 and 8 weeks of age, as this is when their maternal antibodies naturally begin to wane. Their second vaccine should be given 3-4 weeks after the initial vaccine (between 10 and 12 weeks of age), where a third booster should be given between 14 and 16 weeks of age. At this third visit, the puppy will also receive their initial rabies vaccine.
Healthy kittens 12 weeks or older should receive two doses of vaccine, administered 3-4 weeks apart. If the kitten is younger than 12 weeks of age upon initial vaccination, a three dose regimen should be followed. At the 16 week old visit the kitten will receive the initial rabies vaccine.
