* The 5-Way vaccine protects against the core diseases that every dog is at risk for. Based on the environment where the dog lives, it may be necessary to vaccinate for other diseases as Coronavirus, Borellia (lyme disease) or the 4-Way Lepto. Vaccines play a key role in keeping puppies healthy. When vaccines are given properly, following an appropriate vaccination schedule, they aid in protecting puppies from infectious diseases. The MPBA is one of the first state breeding associations to take the lead and encourage a standard breeder and dog owner vaccination protocol making Missouri on the cutting-edge of disease protection for dogs.
