Vaccinations are a fundamental part of the health care of a toy poodle dog. These help protect them against various infectious diseases and are an effective preventive measure to ensure their well-being.

There are different vaccines recommended for toy poodle dogs, including basic and optional vaccines. Core vaccines typically include distemper, parvovirus, infectious hepatitis, and leptospirosis vaccines. These diseases can be serious and even fatal for dogs, so it is essential to ensure they are protected. We do not recommend others, such as Lehismania, since it is not corrected for weight but is the same for a Great Dane or a Toy Poodle. There have been cases of death after this vaccine in small breeds.

It is important to note that the vaccines administered as a puppy, especially the Parvovirus vaccine, contain attenuated or inactivated viruses that stimulate the dog's immune system to develop a protective immune response against those specific viruses. That is why we must always wait a minimum of a week from the puppy's arrival home to vaccinate him if he has any pending vaccinations as usual, since he may have a small drop in defenses. Additionally, in the case of live attenuated virus vaccines, a minimal amount of the virus itself may be excreted in the feces of the vaccinated dog. This can create a situation where performing specific diagnostic tests to detect the presence of certain viruses, such as parvovirus and coronavirus, results in false positive results. That is, the dog may test positive due to the presence of viruses excreted in the feces as a result of vaccination, even though it is actually protected against those diseases. For this reason, these tests must always be contrasted and related over time to the last vaccine.

It is important to keep this information in mind when performing diagnostic tests for viral diseases in dogs that have recently been vaccinated. In the event of a positive test result, it is advisable to perform additional tests or consult with a veterinarian to obtain an accurate diagnosis and determine the dog's actual health status.

In addition to the basic vaccines, there are optional vaccines that may be recommended depending on the environment and lifestyle of the toy poodle dog. These may include the kennel cough vaccine, rabies vaccine, and Lyme disease vaccine, among others.

It is important to follow the vaccination schedule recommended by your veterinarian and ensure that the dog receives the necessary doses at the appropriate times. Vaccines usually require periodic boosters to maintain effective protection over time.

It is essential to keep in mind that the weight of the puppy can influence the dose and timing of vaccinations. Smaller dogs, such as toy poodles, typically require lower doses compared to larger breeds. Therefore, it is important for a veterinarian to determine the appropriate dosage based on the weight and individual needs of the puppy.

In summary, vaccinations are an essential measure to protect the health of a toy poodle dog. By following proper vaccination guidelines and consulting with a veterinarian, you can ensure your dog's protection and well-being from infectious diseases.
