Can my dog get her shots while she is pregnant?


Answer by  thelostone (1457)

Your dog probably shouldn't get her shots when she is pregnant. It can cause some problems with the unborn puppies if she does. Most vets will have you wait until after the puppies are weaned before giving her shots.

Her annual vaccination shots? I'd say no. It'd be much safer to wait until after she's done nursing her pups.

A vet will not give rabies shots while pregnant. She should be okay while she is pregnant, I would recommend going to get them 2 months after she has the puppies. You will want the puppies weaned off of her before you get any shots. Make sure you do this.

It is not recommended to vaccinate a pregnant dog. Vaccines are best done several weeks before the dog gets pregnant.

It is safe. The main concern would be the same concerns that you would have normally when giving a dog shots. Depending on they type of shot, there is always the possibility of a bad reaction. It is recommended to only get the required or necessary shots for your dog while she is pregnant.

Definately. Some shots are ok during certain pregancy stages. If given at a wrong stage, can cause death of the fetuses. No vet will give rabies to any animal during pregnancy.Dogs techinically only get a rabies vaccination every other year -3 yrs now a days anyways, and waiting for the pregnancy to be over won't affect much.

A dog cannot get their shots when they are pregnant. Any altercation in a dog could cause a miscarriage. Don't medicate your dog when pregnant.
