Can I walk my dog after his vaccination?


Editor's Picks
A nice walk can be a treat after a visit to the vet for vaccination, but remember that puppies won’t have the full protective benefit of their vaccinations until one to two weeks after their last injection.

Adult dogs who become stressed by vet visits could be less tolerant of other dogs or strangers afterwards, so choose a quiet place to walk with them. A few dogs are sore or a bit ‘under the weather’ after their vaccination, though this usually happens several hours later. Obviously, if your dog doesn’t want to go for his usual walk that’s fine, just make sure he gets the opportunity to go to the toilet.
