Per my vet-
Rabies at 16-18weeks (after all the puppy shots-every 3 weeks)
If I am travelling to shows/tests/stuff my vet and I adjust the Parvo accordingly-scares the hell out of me.I take baby wipes wipe their feet, change my shoes etc. My vet comes to the car if there has been Parvo in the last 2 weeks, and I bleach/parvasol my life.
ALL boosters at a year and 16 weeks-I space out the rabies and the DHPP by at least a week.
Rabies every 3-sometimes 2 1/2, as we had a couple of cases close by recently.
My older dog had his 1st DHPP in 4 years last year. I did Titers
The younger dogs will get them as we find out more-I am guessing every 3
as Titers are not perfect either.
I do not give lepto, but will to the young dogs when we find out which one to give for my area-we are looking into it-
Bordatella only covers 26 of the 40 something strains-Whistler has never had one, and been exposed to kennel cough numerous times-rode home next to my parents dog who HAD been vaccinated and got a terrrible case-Whistler never got it. Stayed in a kennel where 3/4 of the kennel had it, neither of my dogs got it.
The younger ones get it due to trainers request, but I don't believe in it.
Nor do I give corona per my vet.
Nor do I give lyme, as I was told not to by Cornell and NC State vet schools-doesn't work.
Giardia vac hasn't been around long enough.
Two of my dogs have had Lymes, and it is horrendous. I know people who have lost dogs to lymes, and wish they would get a vaccine that works. I have been told it will always be an underlying problem, and I know it pops up with Whistler. I am hoping we caught it early enough with Britain.
Carbon is just too sweet for ticks :twisted: Seriously, thankfully they don't like him much.
I do use Preventic collars, and heartworm stuff, and advantage as needed.
My kittens get everything too 8) Cats are different from dogs-they get yearly rabies, not sure about the rest since they are indoors,but hang out on my porch. They fetch as well, and Whistler stole the ball from the big one today :roll:
and yes I believe in vaccines as I was tested for whooping cough last week-seems we have an outbreak due to unvaccinated kids and I am high risk due to being a teacher :evil:
