    Really nothing, the AVMA's guidelines now are 3 years but that was a compromise. Off the record most vets will tell you after the one year booster forget about the core vaccines.

    The one thing that is worth consideration is whether lepto is worth giving based on where you live.

    Lepto vaccine only lasts about 6 months. I vaccinate every spring with it to get us through spring and summer.

    I ran titers on my guys this spring and only one dog needed a booster. That was for hepatitis, so that was all we gave.
