Vaccinations


The immune systems of young puppies and kittens are in a developing state. The immunity induced by a vaccination given younger than 12 - 16 weeks of age lasts 2 - 3 weeks. Therefore, it is necessary to give vaccinations every 3 weeks until the puppy or kitten is 12 - 16 weeks old. A puppy or kitten can be given the adult vaccinations at 12 weeks; however, if the adult vaccination (last in puppy/kitten series) is given at 16 weeks, there is greater immunity and better protection. The first rabies vaccination is given at 3 months of age and lasts 1 year. The 2nd and all subsequent rabies vaccinations in N. C. are good for 3 years.
