What shots do my older dogs need?
I have three senior dogs: 13 year old lab, 10 year old lab, approximately 10 year old small terrier.
I love my vet, but he has been a bit slow, in my opinion, about realizing that the dogs don't need as many annual vaccinations as they used to think.
What is the Canine DA2PP vaccine? Is this for distemper and parvo? They have one of my labs due for it after receiving a three-year shot, but the terrier they say is due after one year. I have read somewhere that it is the same shot, so why three years for one dog and only one year for the other?
Apparently, they are also due for the Leptospirosis shot after one year. I feel this is important for my dogs to have, but unsure whether they need it every single year??
The rabies is, of course, by law, so I wouldn't consider letting them go without that one. But does anyone have opinions about whether senior dogs need all of these shots? I have also read that in many cases senior dogs don't need any more shots at all, ever. Thanks.
