Vaccines and Parasite Prevention
Our puppies will leave our hands with their vaccinations up to date for their appropriate ages and you will have a vaccine health record to keep and take to your vet. We use Nobivac Canine 1-DAPPv, which prevents Canine Distemper, Adenovirus Type 1 (Hepatitis), Adenovirus Type 2 (Respiratory Disease), Parainfluenza, and Parovirus. It also protects against all known strains of Parvo. This vaccine will be first administered to the puppy at the age of 7 weeks of age or older, and then repeated again at 11-12 weeks, if your puppy is in our care long enough to receive this vaccine. It's recommended to be administered again 16 weeks and then at yearly intervals. The amount of doses that your puppy will receive will vary from puppy to puppy because it will depend on how long your puppy is in our care at Salem's Finest.
Puppies will have doeses of Parasite Prevention, also known as "dewormer," at the ages of 2, 4, 6, 8 & sometimes 10 weeks depending on how long the puppy is in our care. The wormer we use is Nemex -2 which contains Pyrantel and it removes large roundworms and hookworms. The wormer also prevents the worms from returning. Our lactating bitches will also be treated for Parasite Prevention about 2-3 weeks after whelping their puppies. Puppies are also treated with Safeguard during their 8th week for three days in a row, prior to leaving Salem's Finest.
