HOW MANY VACCINATIONS HAVE MY PUPPY RECEIVED?

- 2x Core Vaccinations
- 2x Deworming
- 1x Tick / Flea / Heartworm Preventative
Wag a Tail Pet Store recommends owners to allow puppies to receive up to 4 core vaccinations in total for their first years, subjected to your preferred vet's advice.
Additional vaccinations and preventatives to consider;
- Kennel Cough Vaccine (Bordetella Vaccine)
- Proheart (Heart Worm Preventative)
- Rabies Vaccine (if relocating to other countries)
WHAT ARE THEY VACCINATED AGAINST?
The puppies are vaccinated against:
Canine Parainfluenza Virus
WHAT IS PARVOVIRUS?
Despite having received their vaccinations, puppies can still contract and be infected with Parvovirus.
Parvovirus is a virus hugely feared by all owners and puppy handlers.
It is a highly contagious and infectious disease that will cause puppies to fall really ill. Bloody, watery diarrhoea and vomitting are the many signs.
There is no cure and no known medication that can help puppies infected with Parvovirus.
Puppies and dogs infected with Parvovirus can only be treated by giving supportive care in the intensive care with bills amounting to thousands of dollars.
Puppies usually die within 5 days, despite receiving medical and professional treatment.
Puppies which survive (albeit not many) continues to be contagious or infectious up to 3 months.
IS THIS WHY YOU PROVIDE PARVOVIRUS TEST BEFORE A PUPPY GOES HOME WITH ME?
All puppies must do a parvovirus swap test before they go home with you. This is to ensure puppy is free from the deadly virus.
The test will be witnessed by you and/or your family members.
WHAT IS A SKC OR KENNEL CLUB CERTIFICATE?
SKC stands for Singapore Kennel Club.
The SKC is recognized internationally as the national canine organization of Singapore.
When a puppy has a SKC Pedigree Certificate or is Pedigree Certified, it is self explanatory that puppy is of pure breed.
Puppies with the SKC or Kennel Club Pedigree Certificates usually cost more than the ones not registered.
MAY WE JUST COME AND PLAY WITH THE PUPPIES? THEY ARE SO CUTE.
Unfortunately, we do not allow interaction unless there is an intention to purchase.
This is also to prevent spreading of diseases and/or illnesses among the puppies.
WHAT BREED IS GOOD FOR ME?
It will be good to do more research as we are not aware of your daily lifestyle to better recommend the perfect breed for you.
If you are staying in a HDB, we suggest looking into the HDB Approved Breeds list first.
Otherwise, it will be best to fix an appointment with us. Our puppy carers and advisors will be able to better help you after a chat.
