Paul, I'm sorry... but the vet recommending that vaccine schedule is playing with fire. It reminds me of the movement that caused numerous children to not get vaccines, and introducing loads of illnesses previously controlled to other non-vaccinated children, or children that had chronic health issues, etc. If you're active outdoors with your pup or dog, it's susceptible to lyme disease from mosquitoes just like humans. Drinks out of puddles or other standing water? Lepto comes into play. Other dogs? There comes your boretella. I've heard of entire litters wiped out by parvo. So where's all that 'maternal protection'? Parvo can live in the ground for awhile. Vet's all clean their offices where I've been. More chance you'll pick it up on a walk, or even from your own yard. 100% of pups are exposed at the vet?!?!? Really? This vet inoculates herself at the end of her bad vaccine schedule. Notice that? If she were so sure she was right, there'd be none of that. Want to know what's an issue in your area? Ask your vet. Use common sense. If humans are 'at risk' then so is your dog. Before the immunization, my childhood dog got sick from kennel cough. Very sick. Keeping in mind that people aren't vaccinating their dogs properly, I'll make sure mine is. As a now retired nurse, the statistics on humans were unsettling. Now I have to worry about this with my dog, too. Geez.
