Parvo Virus in the Community
North Ogden Animal Hospital would like to remind you of the risks of Parvo Virus that is in our community. No puppy is protected until it has had a proper set of vaccinations from your veterinarian at 8, 12, and 16 weeks of age.
Puppies should not be on the ground in areas where you do not have complete knowledge of the vaccine history of all dogs that could be in that area. This means not taking your puppy to dog parks, on walks, pet stores, hardware stores, any public common area, in the grass or on the sidewalk of a veterinary clinic until they are fully vaccinated.
Puppies should be carried in your arms from your vehicle into the clinic for any appointments or puppy class and then carried in your arms back out to your vehicle.
Puppy classes are generally in a safe environment where all puppies have started an appropriate vaccine protocol. We recommend going to puppy classes so that your pup can begin to learn the basic skills of behavior and socialization to become a happy dog.
If you have any questions or concerns please give us a call at 801-782-4401. We would be happy to assist you in any way we can!

It helped when you said that puppies are not protected until they have had a proper set of vaccinations. My husband and I are planning to adopt a Beagle puppy so this is helpful. We are hoping to find a veterinarian tomorrow morning who can help us understand how we can take care of the puppy for our two kids.
