Your puppy needs a number of puppy shots during its first year of life to help keep it healthy and protect it from dangerous diseases. Puppies require a lot of shots and are often seen by their local veterinarians during the first year. Shots usually start at about 6-8 weeks and then are repeated every 2-3 weeks until your puppy is 6 months old. After that, the puppy shots become less frequent.
