How many shots do puppies need before going outside? When can puppies go out for the first time? In their first 16-18 weeks, puppies typically go through three rounds of vaccinations. After each round of vaccinations, there is a five to seven day waiting period until they are fully effective.
What shots does a 13 week old puppy need?
Every year they should have the following boosters:
- Infectious hepatitis.
What is the 3rd set of shots for puppies? At 12 weeks of age, your puppy will have the third round of hepatitis, distemper, parvovirus, coronavirus and parainfluenza. At around 14 to 16 weeks, your puppy should receive a vaccine for rabies.
When should puppy get first set of shots? We recommend initial puppy shots at 6 to 8 weeks of age.
Starting their vaccinations early allows for protection as quickly as possible, as the natural protection they gained from their mother wears off. Puppies are far more vulnerable to diseases such as distemper and parvo.
