Hi, Dave, yesterday my vet told me that my new pup will be REQUIRED to have a Bordetella vaccine before he gets neutered at 6 months, even after I laid down the law about the vaccination schedule. She said I can wait one week after the 16-week booster and then get the Rabies shot (not 4 weeks). She also said that after the puppy round, they will give annual boosters until they are 3 years old, then every three years after that. Like I'm gonna approve THAT! Grrrrrrrr, don't make Momma mad!
I'm going to start phone interviewing for a new vet who will respect my wishes and not try to convince me that titers are expensive and hard to interpret, blah, blah, blah, and wouldn't I feel bad if he got sick because I didn't vaccinate him.
