Let’s start by focusing on the important vaccinations for puppies and kittens during their first year of life in the Indian context. An important thing to remember is that different veterinary doctors can have different vaccination protocols. I’m about to elaborate on the vaccination protocol that I personally recommend.

Pet Dogs, the first vaccine that is generally given is the “Puppy DP” between 4 to 6 weeks of age. This protects the puppy from deadly life-threatening airborne viruses such as Parvo and Distemper.

The Anti-Rabies Vaccine, which I recommend next, can be given as early as 45 days with a Booster Shot after 21 days.

Around 8 weeks of age, a combined cluster of vaccines commonly known as 5-in-1, 7-in-1, 9-in-1 or 11-in-1 is given with a Booster Shot after 21 days again. These protect your puppy from viruses such as Adenovirus, Parvovirus, Distemper, Leptospira, and some other deadly diseases, which can be fatal for your puppy. Don’t be confused about which vaccine cluster is the best. There is a base level protection against five diseases and in the rest of the vaccines, there is increased protection against more strains of Leptospira. 9-in-1 and 11-in-1 also provide protection against Coronavirus.

Cats, there are 3 core vaccinations that are vaccinated together in one injection commonly known as Feligen or Tricat in India. This can be given to a kitten between 6 to 8 weeks of age followed by a booster at 16 weeks of age.

Anti-Rabies Vaccination is also given to cats, following exactly the same protocol as dogs i.e. the first shot is given at 45 days followed by a Booster after 21 days.
