• What happens if my dog didn't get follow-up shots for DAPP? I recently found out they were suppose to get 3 shots as a puppy?

    Hi Jennifer,
    I recommend that you talk to your local veterinarian about this question. The number of vaccines a puppy needs will depend on each individual puppy, the age that the vaccines were started, and the environment that the puppy will be exposed to. Your vet has access to your pet’s medical history and they will be able to let you know for sure if your pet missed a vaccine booster. The concern without the correct number of boosters is that the pet could still be susceptible to the diseases in the vaccine. The DAPP diseases are all very serious and can be life threatening to the pet. Your vet will be able to talk to you more about this and recommend any further treatment or prevention that your pet needs.
