An immunization:

Newborn puppies through the placenta and breast milk to obtain a certain amount of immune antibody can protect the puppies in a certain period from the invasion of a specific source of infection. Due to the interference of maternal antibodies and vaccines in the antigenicity of the virus, so would interfere with active immunization Ziquan. Maternal antibodies obtained mainly through colostrum, colostrum intake according to the different amount of time, maternal antibodies protect the puppies there are some differences in the time; the same time virus protection for different time is different. Usually about eight weeks old puppies body maternal antibody levels have been lower than the concentration needed to protective immunity.

Of “distemper” and “small dog” immunity from maternal antibodies in the six or seven weeks has been reduced to a relatively low level, insufficient to resist the invasion of the two viruses. But this time there are others in the role of maternal antibodies, so it is temporarily unable to injection of 6 linked seedlings to avoid immune failure, this time in the 42 days of dose of the Netherlands Intervet doggy two together, this vaccine is specific to these kinds of situations, the injection can be quickly in one to two weeks to play a role in the “distemper” and “small dog” play a role in immunity.

After the injection of three to four weeks to six joint seedlings, repeated six to four weeks after injection of rabies associated +. Immunity after two weeks. At this point, complete the immunization process. After a six-year joint + additional disease. (The above example are Intervet)

If the infected area should be four to five weeks of age puppies injected with the hyperimmune serum, injected once again on the 10th interval, and then injected according to the traditional immunization procedure.

Note that:

1, the vaccine should be used the same brand, can not change the brand in the immune process, otherwise easily lead to immune failure.

2, vaccine storage conditions should be noted, and the inactivated vaccine should be stored in 2 – 8 degrees Celsius, to prevent freezing, heat and direct sunlight; attenuated should be stored in -15 degrees Celsius, to maintain its effectiveness.
