了解幼犬的疫苗

? 了解幼犬的疫苗 ? Topics Covered: 核心疫苗: DA2PP(也称为 DHPP,犬四联)疫苗 狂犬病(Rabies)疫苗 可选疫苗: 钩端螺旋体病(Leptospirosis) 疫苗 博德特氏菌(Bordetella) 疫苗 一岁前的疫苗接种时间表 核心疫苗: 无论品种或生活方式如何,所有狗都应接种核心疫苗。 DA2PP(也称为 DHPP,犬四联)疫苗: 是一种“核心疫苗”,建议所有狗接种。这种疫苗是一种组合疫苗,可保护狗免受 4 种不同疾病的侵害。 DA2PP 防止瘟热(一种神经系统感染)、两种腺病毒(也称为肝炎、一种肝脏感染)、细小病毒(肠道和免疫抑制病毒)和副流感病毒(呼吸道感染)。这些感染都是由病毒引起的,并且在生活环境中很常见,由野生动物和未接种疫苗的狗携带。与治疗相比,疫苗接种更加便宜且高效。因此,无论品种或生活方式如何,我们建议所有狗狗接种。 狂犬病(Rabies)疫苗: 狂犬病疫苗也是一种“核心疫苗”,所有狗和猫都需要,无论何种生活方式。狂犬病是一种病毒,通过唾液(咬伤)从受感染的哺乳动物传播给其他动物。狂犬病总是致命的。 因此,在安大略省,所有健康的、可以接种疫苗的宠物,都必须接种疫苗并保持疫苗的更新和有效。如果宠物没有接种狂犬病疫苗,宠物主人可能会被罚款。(See: https://www.ontario.ca/page/rabies-pets and R.R.O. 1990, Reg. 567: RABIES IMMUNIZATION.) 幼犬可以在 12 周龄时开始接种疫苗,大多数在 16 周龄时进行最后一次加强疫苗接种。 可选疫苗: 根据疾病的接触风险,推荐接种可选疫苗。 钩端螺旋体病(Leptospirosis) 疫苗: 钩端螺旋体病是一种感染肝脏和肾脏的细菌。它会在哺乳动物的尿液中携带并由此传播,包括浣熊、老鼠、狗、鹿、马和牛。受感染的其中一条途径是,狗因意外摄入染病动物的尿液或被染病动物尿液污染的水(例如水坑、溪流、公共水碗)。这种病的诊断和治疗都是极具挑战性的。在最好的情况下,感染这种疾病的狗虽然病得很重,但经过多天住院和护理会康复。但在最坏的情况下,狗可能会死于这种疾病。虽然这种病曾被认为是农村狗的疾病,但随着城市中浣熊和老鼠的增加,导致这种疾病在城市环境中也急剧增加。这种疾病也是“人畜共患病”的,这意味着它也会影响人。该疫苗尤其推荐经常在户外的狗接种,例如公园,小径、后院、露营地、小木屋和农场。 博德特氏菌(Bordetella) 疫苗 : Bordetella(又名犬舍咳)是一种高度传染性疾病,狗会表现出类似流感的症状。在免疫系统正常、健康的患者中,博德特氏菌可引起轻度至中度咳嗽,并持续约 7-10 天。在严重的情况下,博德特氏菌可引起肺炎。这种疫苗推荐给所有幼犬,免疫功能较低的狗,短头犬种和高度社交的狗。犬舍咳是引起幼犬肺炎的最大原因。 对于所有疫苗,我们必须权衡疫苗反应的风险(通常非常低)和感染风险 当感染风险超过潜在疫苗反应的风险时,建议接种疫苗。 一岁前的疫苗接种时间表 核心疫苗:… Continue reading 了解幼犬的疫苗
