Thanks Dave. I am very careful with vaccines. Besides rabies, I don't think any of my guys needed anything in a long time. I read a book on vaccines when Bella was a puppy and I decided not to give them unless they absolutely need something. If rabies was not the law, I would probably give it every 7 years.....if that.

I had no idea that the shots are one size fits all. That is insane!

I'm with you there Linda, .We're on a limited schedule for sure . I'm leaning to seven years with all of them. Which means one more for Molly. The rabies is ridiculous here, every two years.

I never give my dogs lepto or corona shots. Have to do rabies once a year; have stretched out the others.

yeah, Corona what a pile of wool we've had pulled over our eyes. Here's Jean Dodds words on this vaccine.

"Corona Not recommended.
1.) Disease only affects dogs <6 weeks of age.
2.) Rare disease: TAMU has seen only one case in seven years.
3.) Mild self-limiting disease.
4.) Efficacy of the vaccine is questionable. "

thank you for this timely video!
Tillie is up for vaccinations next month and I am very confused and un educated about them. I am going to be doing research for sure and visiting the website the video mentioned.
I am curious, IF our dogs have had the vaccines in the past and haven't reacted does that mean that they won't react in the future? or is it more on a case by case basis?

Tillie is due for "Da2ppv 1 yr" tomorrow... what IS this vaccine, is it important? It sounds like a combo vaccine which I want to steer away from...
She needs Rabies too, as well as kennel cough. I was planning on spacing her vaccines out by a month, is that a good plan?

It's up to you Tammy, being from CA , that's where Jean Dodds is from and Sabine follows her protocol as well. Read up and decide for yourself. I'll be back with Dr. Schultz aricle as well. http://www.weim.net/emberweims/Vaccine.html
And here is his., These two people pretty much agree with one another. http://www.cedarbayvet.com/duration_of_immunity.htm
