Rabies and Distemper @ the same time?

Lucy's now 18 months old. I've put off getting her year-shots as long as I can. Since she's a therapy dog, she MUST have her vaccaines and they will not accept titters.

Can I get both shots distemper and rabies at the same time? Is that too much for her body to handle now that she's older. When we did puppy shots we spaced everything out, two weeks in between each shot.

NO!!!!!!!! Space them out!!!! Very very important - usually you should space them 2 weeks apart.

Havanese can have very bad reactions to shots, so it is not only important that you space them out, but also stay at the vets for a bit, after the shot to be sure there is no reaction!

Ditto. Never give rabies with any other shot or at the same time as surgery

Space them out!

Bosco just got his rabies shot today and that is his final shot. We spaced out his puppy shots by 4 weeks and the vet and my breeder strongly suggested to never over load their system with to many at a time. Another reason too, is that if there was a reaction, you wouldn't know which one caused the problem. Good luck!

what one did you give? The year shot or the Rabies? Mine are a bit over two and we just got our year shot. Bad Mom I got confused about that one. I have a feeling they didn't even need it. The vet said he feels that by age three they are out of the woods as far as getting parvo or distemper. I had been living at my sisters who has acreage and wildlife so I got the rabies last summer and the year shot about a mo ago.

Dr. Dodds recommends leaving three to four weeks between any shot and rabies shot. Your vet should know this. It's not the immediate reactions we need to worry about. I'm interested to know which therapy organization doesn't accept titers. ?

My puppy got 2 shots at once including the Rabbies shot. He is ok now. Could he have health issues later?

It's the long term effects that are of concern , even though they can have immediate reactions as well . If they react at any step , they can react worse the next time. The reason to separate the shots is so that you don't tax the dog's system with two shots. and to be able to tell which shot he is reacting to if he does react. He should be OK in the sense that he didn't react immediately.
