Vaccination and Deworming for Peanut

Peanut the Poodle

Owning a pet entails great responsibilities. Having Peanut as a new member of the family is like having a newborn baby at home; you need to do feeding, bathing, cleaning of his poo and urine and taking care of his health and well-being and providing a comfortable environment for him to live and thrive.

 Weighing only 800 gm, Peanut is three-month old as at July 1, 2016. As the vet suggested we sent him for his first vaccination on July 2, 2016. The nest vaccination will be on July 30, 2016 (4 months old) He was also given a dose to deworm. He was dewormed on May 28 for the first time. According to Veterinarians deworming should be carried out before the first vaccination.

Some canine diseases are very serious and can be fatal even with treatment. To prevent Peanut from getting these diseases it is necessary for him to get regular vaccination Vaccination is to provide protection against life threatening diseases such as Parvovirus, Distemper, Hepatitis and Canine Cough 

Deworming is to prevent peanut form getting Intestinal parasites such as roundworm, hookworm, whipworm and tapeworm .

 After the vaccination peanut was listless, moving slowly and feeling pain all over his body when you touched him. After a good night‘s rest he is up and about and behaving his usual self. He is active and running quickly and moving swiftly.
