What Do 7-in-1 and 9-in-1 Vaccines Include?

A 7 way dog vaccine and a 9 way shot for dogs are combination vaccines for dogs and puppies. A combination dog vaccine offers protection against several dog serious diseases in a single shot. The DAPPvL2 and DAPPvL4 offers dogs protection against Canine Distemper, Adenovirus Type 1 (hepatitis), Adenovirus Type 2 (respiratory), Parainfluenza, Parvovirus and Leptospirosis. These canine diseases are caused by viruses and bacteria and are very contagious, so vaccination is the best way to keep dogs protected.

A 7-way and 9-way dog vaccine contains modified-live or killed versions of common canine diseases. Like other dog vaccines, a 7 way shot for dogs and a 9 way puppy shot must be kept cool and refrigerated until they are administered through injection.

When Should a Dog Receive a 7-in-1 or 9-in-1 Vaccine?

A 7 way shot for dogs or a 9 way puppy shot is recommended for both breeding and non-breeding dogs that are often exposed to areas of standing water outdoors. These dog vaccines include protection against the core dog diseases, in addition to adding protection against leptospirosis in dogs. Most cases of canine leptospirosis (lepto) vacc occurs in dogs that come in contact with contaminated water or rodents. This lepto vaccine for dogs is recommended for dogs that are often exposed to areas of standing water outdoors or if rodents are found in or near the dogs food source as the urine from rodents can contaminate dog food with lepto.

The 7 way dog shot provides protection against two strains of lepto, while the 9 way dog shot protects against four strains of lepto. A 7 way dog vaccine is recommended for dogs that need protection from lepto but are small breed dogs that may be more prone to a reaction to the lepto vaccine. Meanwhile, a 9 way dog vaccine is recommended when you have at risk dogs, such as dogs that are hunting dogs or field trial dogs who would be more likely to be exposed to water.

Do not vaccinate a pregnant dog. The 7 way shot for dogs and 9 way shot for dogs schedule recommends annual revaccination for all adult dogs. Lepto can be included in puppy vaccines after the puppies reach 12 weeks of age.
