Puppies 8 and 10 weeks and older require 3 sets of the DHPP vaccine to be fully protected against this often fatal disease. Keep your puppy indoors and limit any exposure t other dogs until he/she is fully vaccinated to avoid any exposure to the Parvo disease .Kittens as well require a series of vaccines to keep them fully protected.
