Hi guys I'm here again with another question lol!

Poppy as had her first injection and is due her second one on the 16 Oct. Now my question is how long after the injection can she go out Question

I always thought it was 2 weeks after the last one. But I have been told she can go out after a week. I have also just been on a web site and it says on there 7-10 days after the last one. I will ask my vet but thought Id ask you guys how long it was after their last injection you took your little ones out.

The reason I'm am asking is my OH wants to go to Blackpool for the lights we do it every year and we want to take her with us. But it will only be 10 days after her last injection. If she stays at home she wont be on her own as my son will stay in with her.

thanks

If my memory serves me right my vet always says a week after the last one.

If your vet says definitely two weeks, you could still take her with you and just carry her when you are out! But personally I don't think there would be a problem 10 days after the final jab Very Happy

Hi Kaz, there is no hard and fast rule I am afraid, you will have to be guided by your vet, some will tell you as long as 4 weeks others as little as one, One of my vets used to say right thats it wait 24 hours and get that puppy out to socialise it. I think sometimes it depends on the age of the puppy, if its a bit older then they seem to say you can go out sooner and I ussually waited untill 10 weeks to get the first one done as they only had to wait 2 weeks then for the second.
I think vets are reconsidering the time lapse as it is so important to socialise your puppy as early as possible. Sorry I cant be more positive...Pat

Not sure but with Coco I think they said a week and with Saska they said 2 weeks but at that age I just carried them everywhere that way they are at least used to some of the sights by the time they go on their first walk.

when molly had her jabs last year the vet said 1 week, we have moved since then and have a new vet and when we had lucys jabs they said 2 weeks we waited 10 days and couldn`t wait any longer she was dying to play on the field with the others, and she has been fine, i think they only tell you what they want to tell you as long as there backs are covered.
i think 10 after she will be fine

Mimi is nearly 6 months old so she had her jabs relatively recently.
My vet said 10-14 days after the 2nd lot, I must admit I did only just stick to the 10 day thing but not longer, as I had her booked in for puppy classes. Before that I did as others said & carried her outside so she'd get used to road noise & people etc. There does seem to be a bit of conflicting advice from differing vets does n't there? You'd think they'd all have the same guidelines. I personally would take her (if you still want to) at 10 days, have a good time. Be prepared to be stopped every 10 mins or so for someone to fuss over her cuteness btw Laughing.
N.B. I'm up at the crack of dawn cos I just woke up with a start during a very bad nightmare - thought I'd come on here to take my mind off it affraid.

I always have mine done at 8 then 10 weeks, i wait the 2 weeks just to be on the safe side as im such a worrier, my Ella the pug couldnt start hers till she was 12 weeks old as the vet thought she was very small so shes only just started to go for her walks but shes in full swing now and loves it. Very Happy

Thanks guys I wished vets all worked the same confused .

When I last took her to the vets I carried her as its not far from my house when we got there the poor thing was so firghtened.
Think I will try the idea that you said Tracey to take her out but carry her to get use to all the different noises just been worried about bumping into other people with dogs as she as only had her first injection.

Going to take her out in the car more for her to get use to it she hated it last time ( I had put her in my cat box lol! )she cried all the way to my daughters school when I got there and took her out to hug her she was shaking so much and her little heart was beating so fast. But on the way back my daughter held her and she was fine.

I had Mia's first injection at 8 weeks then you have to wait two weeks for the 2nd injection. I was then told to wait 7 days before taking her out. She is 13 weeks old on Thursday so only very recently had her injections.

If you ring your own vets though they will tell you over the phone what they recommend. Very Happy

At our vets its 2 weeks between injections and then a week after the last one before they can go out.

Because Willow is going to be 10wks old when we collect her, this means her first injection will not be until she is 11wks, meaning she will be 14wks before she can go for a walk! Crying or Very sad

It seems most of you took them out after a week after their last injection so we should be fine to take her with us. As it will be 10 days. But I will ask my vet to see what they say.

Won't belong now and Willow will be home with you but I know how you feel its awful having to wait and must be worse seeing all the gorgeous puppies and dogs on here.

Mine had jabs at 8 weeks and 10 weeks and I took them out 1 week after that.

I also carried them out for a short time so they got used to the sights and sounds of the big wide world.

When we got to go proper walks they were fine .

I never have mine vaccinated until they are 12 weeks old at least anyway! Its not that much longer - and when they are little they can only do little walks anyway Very Happy

Thanks guys looks like her first walk will be at Blackpool. We know most of the time she will be carried as she's only little and her poor little legs will get tired but at least she will get use to noises people not forgetting the horses trotting by.

Is it best to carrier her or would you buy one of the pet bags you see some people carrying their little dogs in.

thanks again guys you are all great ⭐

thanks

I'm not sure about the bags - Peerie has been in a pet bag a couple of times (when she was little and pre-injections) and HATES them - but being a contrary little madam, she loved the cat box/rigid carrier that I used for flying her between Shetland adn Edinburgh, and would quite merrily curl up and go to sleep as soon as she was put in.

However, if you're going to be doing a lot of walking, and therefore a lot of carrying, a pet bag might be better as Willow will be more secure.
