Second-Stage Primary Vaccine Compatibility

Vaccination is essential for all puppies...It is becoming more common for owners to get puppies that have already been given the first part of their primary vaccine course. This has led to concern from some owners who have contacted us to ask if the second-stage vaccines provided by us here at Daisy Street are compatible with what the animal has already received. We can happily confirm that they are indeed fully compatible. Regardless of what the primary vaccine was.

Making sure that your dog is vaccinated properly is an essential part of owning one of these faithful friends and can save you and your pet lots of problems in the future. Insurance policies generally require that the animal is vaccinated according to the proper schedule and records of these vaccinations, provided by the veterinarian, are kept.

The vaccination of a puppy is divided into primary and secondary stages. The second vaccine is usually administered when the animal is around 10 weeks of age, providing immunity to the serious canine conditions of parvovirus, distemper and hepatitis. Very occasionally, the leptospirosis component of the vaccine may need a ‘top-up’ when the puppy reaches 12 weeks of age.

The details of the puppy’s primary vaccine should be given to the vet at Daisy Street in order that the correct second vaccine to give can be determined correctly, avoiding any adverse side effects. Priced at just £28, the second-stage vaccination includes a leptospirosis top-up two weeks later if required and also a useful 20-minute appointment with the vet, who will perform a thorough examination and clearly explain to you any issues.

For more details and to book an appointment, please give us a call and speak to one of our expert vets or nurses.
