Palo Alto Humane's Puppy Health Campaign in English & Spanish

Your puppy needs all his or her vaccinations—especially to prevent the puppy from catching Parvovirus, which quickly causes suffering or even death. Parvo is dangerous for dogs of all ages. Parvo is highly contagious, so keep your puppy at home and away from other dogs until fully vaccinated by a veterinarian.

A full series of puppy vaccinations will require from two to three visits to a veterinary facility spaced several weeks apart. For low-cost shots, check with pet food chains and your local animal shelter. We know you love your puppy, so be sure to vaccinate right away!
