Protecting and protecting the health of your four-legged puppy is a priority for any family that has decided to accept a dog, and many believe that this is done through vaccination, and this is a commitment to law
But this is a very large but false information. In fact, there is no compulsory vaccine according to the law in Italy, in the sense that if it does not run, there is no administrative or other punishment. Unlike some compulsory prevention, there is a decision to travel to a neighboring quadrant.
However, according to the order: we see that some vaccines are forcibly forged to dogs if they travel abroad, and these restrictions impose Italian law on the owners Gives. [1965،9004] There are no compulsory vaccines, but it is recommended
As expected, the Italian law does not impose mandatory vaccines for dogs on their borders. However, in accordance with international guidelines promoted by the Small Animal Veterinary Association's VGG Guidance Group, there is a group of "core" vaccine group that all dogs and all In cats, no matter where they live in the world, they have to do.
is a dual goal: on the one hand, in fact, it is known that, especially in the mass population of canine, and in women, pockets of infection remain. While there has been a decline in the vaccine in recent years, it is probably related to economic reasons; on the other hand, it is believed that a winning strategy to protect the largest number of dogs and cats is on "Population Safety" ie increasing the percentage of animals vaccinated in a specified area to reduce the incidence of an illness
But what is the "core" vaccine and is therefore recommended by veterinarians in Italy?
Vaccine dogs: what is recommended in Italy?

From the beginning  [19459003) the puppy begins, in fact, the first year of life is that dogs are at increased risk.
Calendar of vaccination of dogs
So we have seen that although there is no mandatory vaccination according to the law, Very serious This is the only strategy to protect the health of four-legged friends. It is therefore very important to plan the vaccination protocol of the vaccination protocol for dogs with your veterinarian, from the age of 6 to 8 to the age of 16, and refer to about 12 months later: in this way we are in fact Our puppy for a protected period (DOI) (immunity period) is at least three years old

- After the first 21 days the first vaccine should be performed, including infectious hepatitis, parvovirus, shell, leptospirosis and parafovirus, after another three weeks

- Every year, then, we should not miss the appointment call if necessary, as described in the following paragraph, antibacterial vaccine from the fifth or valid for five valid pathologies and every 3 years valid for parotid virus, loose, parafovial, and hepatitis
Travel dog: rabies vaccine
However, as we have seen, compulsory vaccines for dogs that permanently stay in Italy with their families, for people who want with their pet want to be different from one another
One of the goals of is the Health Committee WSAVA and the World Health Organization to eliminate dog wrath until 2030 . In view of this, vaccination has been introduced against this pathology: Reference is in Annex III of the EU Regulation 576 2013.
There are some exceptions : As stated in
the Ministry of Health's website any EU member state can introduce into its territory puppies from other countries under the age of 12 weeks do not allow vaccination against rabies. To understand this, it is necessary to consult the European Commission's Youth Animals Commission which in brief is a permanent update of the status of all EU Member States.

As a result, it is good to assert that in Italy there is no vaccine for dogs required by law. On the contrary, there are restrictions such as a rabies vaccine for those who wish to travel to their pet company, as well as the task of registering and identifying an animal through a microprocessor. Some vaccines are sometimes medically defined as "obligatory" for medical purposes because scientific evidence confirms that this is the most effective remedy for protecting your dog's health
