Most animals need only what are known as core vaccines: those that protect against the most common and most serious diseases.

In dogs, the core vaccines are distemper, parvovirus, hepatitis and rabies.

In cats, they are panleukopenia, calicivirus, rhinotracheitis (herpesvirus), and rabies as required by law.

The most optimal window to start introducing water and puppy food is when the puppy is around 3 to 4 weeks old.

This is the time when the pup will naturally start to slowly wean from her mother's milk and start becoming more independent.
