I'd rather just wait a few more weeks and do another vaccine, if there is still risk.

According to the AAHA 2011 guidelines 3 is fine since the 3rd is between 14 and 16 weeks.

Yes, but if I had followed those guidelines Hans would be running around without immunity to Parvo and I wouldn't know it.

I think the key word is without FULL immunity.

I wonder how that could have actually effected him, since I'm sure he's not the only dog and we don't see many puppies vaccinated after 14 wks have a problem.

I only do 3 shots to and I do them at home. Rabies at the vet a couple weeks after last distemper/ parvo. I think 6 wks is to young for the first shot and I'm not sure if it holds any value?(just my opinion)On average people get pups at about 8 weeks and are off to the vet within a couple days, making it more like 8.5 weeks, 11-11.5 weeks, and then 14-14.5 weeks with rabies at 16-16.5 weeks.

We've been recommending 4 if a breeder gave it because we're seeing a LOT of parvo in the area, including a 5 month old who had three rounds (one given by a breeder). We prefer to know that the pup definitely has 3 vaccines that were kept at the correct temperature and definitely got in, rather than risk parvo. We've just started doing this though because it has been so bad here, there's been around 30 cases in the area the past few months.
