Leptospira Vaccines

Yesterday Truffles went for her yearly check-up and received the DAPP and rabies vaccine. Our vet recommended the new Leptosprosis vaccine because of the wildlife where we live. It's part of the core vaccines now. The vet has not seen any reactions to the new vaccine. Has anyone given this new vaccine? Scout and Truffles were groomed this weekend and both had a tick on them! I'm going to change from Nexgard to Simparica . I understand it starts working within 12 hrs.

rabies should be separated by a few weeks from the core vacs. https://drjeandoddspethealthresource...s#.WrwAuojwbIV

I won't give my dogs Lepto vaccine. The younger two haven't even gotten Parvo or Distemper since their first two puppy vaccines. I titer them, and their titers are still high, even Kodi, who hasn't had a vaccine in years, still has high titers at 9 years old. (of course, we do follow the law as far as Rabies vaccines are concerned)

I protect my dogs from Lepto by making sure they NEVER drink out of standing water. I carry water for them on every walk. ...And if they showed any sign of getting sick, I would seek medical care immediately, as I always do. Lepto is treatable with antibiotics if caught early.

Everyone has to make their own decisions on vaccines, but I have one with vaccinosis problems, and that's enough.

The "core" vaccinations are Adenovirus, Parvovirus, Distemper, and Rabies. Leptospirosis vac. is not a core but is noncore or optional. (see article I posted). If you look at Jean Dodds 2016 protocol it could be classified as a core DP (note no adenovirus vac,) as Jean does not consider it manditory for every dog. There is no "new" Lepto vaccination that she is aware of. The most likely vaccines to cause adverse reactions (vaccines) are rabies and leptospirosis.

This is the second time we had seen this vet. She was extremely through with the exam and took time to explain the benefits and negatives of the vaccine. I didn't ask how long the new Leptospirosis vaccine has been out, but she did say it didn't have the same vaccine reactions of the older vaccine. We do have rats, raccoons, possums and recently a fox in the backyard. I started thinking that the dogs sometimes eat the grass in the backyard. They also go to parks where there's wildlife and lick their paws. I'm still on the fenced whether to vaccinate. Here is the information I received which can be shared.
