Dog Vaccination Schedule – Risk Of Puppies and Cat Shots

Advice on a Dog Vaccination and whether a puppy can catch a disease from a Cat.

Ok, so my cat does not have his shots up to date, he is 7 years old, And I just got a new puppy! Is my new puppy who has only had his first shots, at risk from my cat?

Hi and thanks so much for asking a question it really helps to keep our site healthy and happy. We are not trained medically so we always advise our visitors to speak to a vet about any medical questions. A puppy should get his or her first shots at the age of approximately six to eight weeks.

However, as far as we are aware there are not many viral diseases that can be passed from a cat to a dog apart from Rabies, and parasitic conditions such as Roundworm, Coccidia, Giardia and of course Fleas and Ticks. These our just our thoughts – for medical advice we would advise seaking to your vet.

Hope this helps
