How often does a dog need a Dhlpp booster? The DHPP 5-in-1 vaccine is a single shot that is given to puppies in a series of injections starting at about 6 weeks of age and given every 2 to 4 weeks until the puppy is 16 weeks old. All adult dogs should receive a booster shot of the DHPP vaccine either yearly or every 3 years based on your vet’s recommendation.
Is Dhlpp vaccine necessary for dogs? Which dog vaccines are absolutely necessary? The DHLPP or DHPP is the only canine vaccine considered essential for all dogs in the United States. That’s why it’s designated a “core” vaccine. Rabies is legally required.
How much is a Dhlpp shot for dogs? The cost of the DHPP vaccine depends on several factors, including where you live. Fortunately, as a combination vaccine, the DHPP vaccine is less expensive than vaccinating for each of the five diseases individually. The DHPP vaccine cost can range from about $40 to $100. Pet insurance can help defray the cost.
How long is a Dhlpp shot good for? DHLPP is required as a puppy series beginning at 6-8 weeks old, boosted twice at 3-week intervals and again a year later. Like rabies, after the first year, the distemper/parvo combination vaccine can be given every three years.
