 A combination vaccine, often called a 5-way vaccine, usually includes adenovirus cough and hepatitis, distemper, parainfluenza, and parvovirus. Some combination vaccines may also include leptospirosis (7-way vaccines) and/or coronavirus. The inclusion of either canine adenovirus-1 or adenovirus-2 in a vaccine will protect against both adenovirus cough and hepatitis; adenovirus-2 is highly preferred. Ask your vet for sure.

 

Some puppies may need additional vaccinations against parvovirus after 15 weeks of age. Consult with your local veterinarian.

 

Vaccines do not stimulate immunity immediately after they are administered. Once a vaccine is administered, the antigens must be recognized, responded to, and remembered by the immune system. In most puppies, disease protection does not begin until five days post vaccination. Full protection from a vaccine usually takes up to fourteen days. In some instances, two or more vaccinations several weeks apart must be given to achieve protection.  

Why do some vaccinated animals still get the disease?

It is a fact that in the USA today, literally hundreds and perhaps thousands of vaccinated dogs and cats are still contracting the diseases they were vaccinated against. Some term this 'vaccine failure,' although it is more likely a failure of the immune system to respond than a problem with the vaccine itself.

Parvovirus is a serious case in point. How can a puppy get the disease and possibly die if it was vaccinated? Unfortunately, for some reason the vaccine did not stimulate the immune system enough to protect the puppy from disease. The reason may be interfering maternal antibodies, the vaccines themselves, the dog's own immune system, or genetics. By far, the most common reason in puppies is interfering maternal antibodies.

 Please follow puppy vaccination schedule for best health of your puppy

 

 

 Dog Licenses

Remember Maricopa County requires your puppy to be licensed:   

Do you love your dog? Then license your dog! Thousands of pets find their way into MCACC Centers each year without any form of identification. Unfortunately, without identification, we are unable to reunite them with their families. Purchasing a dog license will ensure that your special companion can be returned home quickly and safely.

The law requires that all dogs over the age of three months have a license and rabies vaccination. Animal Care & Control licenses dogs in all unincorporated areas in Maricopa County and all other municipalities within Maricopa County with the exception of Fountain Hills and Native American reservations.

A license is more than just a requirement. It is a benefit to you and your dog.

  • Found dogs with a license can be reunited quickly with their owner.
  • Your lost dog gets a free ride home. MCACC staff will attempt to bring your dog home to you immediately, skipping a trip to our center.
  • If your dog does get lost, he or she will get a longer care period at one of our Centers. We will exhaust every option we have to contact you using the information in our database, as well as provide this information to Pets 911.
  • If your dog bites someone, he/she may be eligible for home quarantine instead of quarantine in our facility or a veterinary hospital.
  • License fees support the operations and care of the animals in our facilities, return of over 6,500 pets to their homes, and adoption of more than 20,000 homeless pets to new families every year.

All dogs need to be licensed so they have identification in case they get out or become lost, and it's the law. Even indoor-only dogs confined to fenced yards get loose. The State of Arizona does not require cats to be licensed. It is a good idea to get your cat an id tag. A lost cat with an id tag has a better chance of being returned to her owner.
