Dog Vaccinations

Dog vaccinations are an essential step towards a healthy immune system for your pet. At Dog Daycare Nashville, we want to provide the best care and safety for your dog.  We require an up-to-date vaccination record for every pet. You or your Vet can fax the records to:

 FAX: 866-785-9470

Vaccinations must be given a


before arrival, because some pets have reactions to vaccinations and some vaccines have a waiting period before they become effective.

The vaccinations required are:

  • Rabies
  • Distemper (Dhlpp)
  • Parvo
  • Bordetella

  • Rabies
  • Distemper (Fvrcp)
  • Leukemia (Felv)

Vaccines help prevent the spread of deadly and highly contagious diseases like rabies, distemper, parvovius and hepatitis.

Why Are Dog Vaccinations Important?

Recommended Core Dog Vaccines

  • Parvovirus: The parvo vaccine protects against a deadly but common virus, especially in puppies, that is highly contagious through contact with infected animals stool. The virus attacks the intestines and causes severe diarrhea and vomiting which can lead to dehydration and death. Rottweilers and Doberman Pinschers are high risk breeds for parvo.
  • Rabies: A fatal and incurable disease, the rabies virus attacks the nervous system of dogs that have been exposed to the saliva of an infected animal through an open wound or bite. Rabies vaccines should always be kept up to date.
  • Distemper: This deadly contagious disease is caused by the virus CDV and has no cure. Distemper mostly affects puppies and attacks multiple systems including the respiratory and central nervous systems.

How Vaccines Promote Dog Health

Vaccines are a weakened or killed version of bacteria or virus that is injected into a dog’s immune system to stimulate the creation of antibodies that block against disease. Puppies have a natural immunity from their mother’s milk but this immunity wears off over time and so the puppies need vaccinations to bolster the immune system and prevent disease and illness. Modified live virus (MLV) vaccines are made up of a weakened strain of a disease and are injected into a dog’s immune system to stimulate an immune response. MLVs offer stronger and more lasting immunity with less shots or doses but can cause disease in rare cases and must be stored and handled carefully. Killed vaccines are inactivated or killed strains of a disease or virus that are introduced to the immune system to stimulate a response. These types of vaccines must be administered several times and are generally less effective than MLV vaccines but are less likely to have adverse side effects.
