Vaccinations

I just had a vaccination consultation done with Sabine at Better Dog Care. She just went to the seminar in California given by Dr. Jean Dodds and Dr. Schultz and picked up some new information. I never fail to learn something from her. As a result we will be eliminating a number of vaccinations in the future. Little did I know that Molly was in a high risk category for adverse reactions to vaccinations because she is white and is a small breed dog. So for awhile we will be drug free except for our bi-annual rabies vac. (by law in Ontario) . Apparently rabies should be good for 7 years. We have a way to go to get these antiquated laws changed.

It depends on the vaccine, Dave! My vet was explaining to us the difference between the rabies vaccines. Apparently there are ones that you can do every year, every two years, or every seven years

Dave, thanks for referring me to Sabine.

I am very wary about giving unnecessary vaccines. See the link below for Dr. Dodds assessment of each vaccine.

I have heard that too about small breed white dogs being at higher risk to adverse reactions to vaccinations. I didn't know how valid it was. So I now just learned it is fact.

Dave, did she mention when you should STOP giving vaccinations? Kodi got all his puppy shots, but has not yet received his 1 year booster(s). My understanding is that you do the boosters at one year and THEN work from titers? Is this correct?

Hi Karen, that was not brought up in Molly's case because she is five. However if you look at Jean Dodds chart there, it does seem to recommend it. Another interesting thing Sabine learned at this seminar from Dr. Schultz is that when doing a titer ,just because it is reading "low" that does not mean it is necessary to revaccinate. He says that it is like being pregnant, either you are or you aren't, either your dog is protected or he isn't.

They don't give you the option? That's a bummer

This is very interesting and I will read and follow all of it. Having just adopted a little 2 year old who was not neutered by the way, I do not know his history of vaccinations, so this will be helpful. Thank you.
