How old are your dogs? I'm really cautious with vaccinations. I don't vaccinate yearly after the puppy shots and first year booster are given. I follow Dr. Jean Dodd's protocol. I do the rabies (every 3 years I think) as mandated by law. I get titers on Maddie, and they've shown she is still immune to parvo/distemper. I don't get lepto, as many Havs don't do well with the vaccination, it isn't prevalent here, and Maddie isn't exposed to wildlife. Her vet doesn't even give lepto routinely. I also don't do corona as I understand it is rare, self-limiting, and is usually seen in puppies.
My first Hav had a very bad reaction to one of her yearly vaccinations. I didn't know better, and just did them routinely. If you do decide to vaccinate yearly, don't do them all at once. Spread them out.
