Vaccinations and Anti-Parasitic Treatments

GDB puppies leave campus having been given the following vaccinations and anti-parasitic treatments: 
 

  • 2 weeks - Pyrantel

  • 3 weeks - Ponazuril

  • 4 weeks - Pyrantel

  • 6 weeks - DA2PP, Intranasal Bordatella, Pyrantel and Ponazuril

  • 8 weeks - DA2PP, Heartgard Plus and Ponazuril

  • 10 weeks - if a puppy is still on campus when it is 10 weeks old it will be given an additional DA2PP booster


When puppy raisers receive the puppy, they are instructed to continue with the following schedule:   
 

  • 12 weeks - DA2PP, Leptospirosis #1

  • 16 weeks - DA2PP, Rabies, Leptospirosis #2
    Puppies are considered fully covered 5 days after this vaccination

  • 18 weeks – Influenza, bivalent #1 (OPTION 1)

  • 20 weeks - Parvovirus vaccine only (if available) or DA2PP and Influenza, bivalent #2 (OPTION 1) or Influenza, bivalent #1 (OPTION 2)
    It is thought that maternal antibodies from the dam can last longer than 16 weeks in approximately 1% of GDB puppies and continue to cause resistance to vaccination attempts. This additional vaccine at 20 weeks is expected to confer immunity to Parvovirus to that 1% which did not respond to the initial vaccines.

  • 23 weeks – Influenza, bivalent #2 (OPTION 2)
