I'd love to learn more about this thing as well. I'd never heard of the Neopar until very recently when another breeder I was visiting mentioned that she'd started using it, but she really didn't know much about it.
We've always just done distemper/parvo at 8, 12, 16 weeks. Never had a case of parvo. Never want to. And the talk of new strains is concerning.
For those using it, or who know others who use it, what vaccination protocol are you following then? Neopar for the first parvo shot early (3 or 5 or 6 weeks or whatever) then Neopar again for the rest of the puppy shots? Or Neopar early, then a regular combo vaccine with distemper for the standard puppy shots?
If the Neopar really does cover additional strains that the common parvo vaccines don't, that would be good reason to use it for the rest of the puppy shots. Only problem there is that while different parvo vaccines can be purchased separately, I'm not aware of any company that makes a distemper only vaccine. Distemper seems to always be packaged in combo shots with other things, including parvo.
