Vaccinating your puppy can help to protect him from several major diseases. The following diseases may sound scary, but if you make sure your puppy gets all the right vaccinations, you won't have to ever worry about them.

Canine distemper

Symptoms include coughing, diarrhoea, high temperature, vomiting, sore eyes and a runny nose. Sometimes the nose and foot pads can become hard and cracked and, in severe cases there can be fits, muscle spasms or paralysis. The disease can be fatal.

Canine Parvovirus

This is a highly contagious disease characterised by bloody diarrhoea. Other symptoms include vomiting, lack of energy, depression and a high temperature. Puppies under 6 months old are particularly susceptible to the Parvo virus which can be fatal.

Canine hepatitis

Symptoms of this include coughing, abdominal pain, seizures, vomiting and diarrhoea. Eyes may appear blueish (hepatitis blue eye). Puppies under twelve months old are most susceptible to this serious and potentially life threatening liver condition.

Leptospirosis

This is a bacterial disease that can be picked up from contact with the urine of infected animals. One form of Lepto can be picked up from the urine of other dogs, another, also known as Weil's disease, is picked up from rat urine. Symptoms include depression, high temperature, severe thirst, lethargy, increased urination, abdominal pain, vomiting, bloody diarrhoea and jaundice. If your puppy becomes jaundiced you may notice that his skin is yellow - this also be identified in the white of his eyes or inside his cheek. In severe cases, this disease can prove fatal within a few hours. This form of Lepto can be transmitted to humans too.
