But the Vet didn't. by the sound of the OP's post the visit after the not eating and at 7 wks re: quandary about the eyes That's 2x before the the first recommended vaccine schedule....or was it at 7 wks and 8 wks. Still not 4 weeks apart....Either way the dog hasn't lived long enough to follow the guideline by either standards. AND the dog should NOT be vaccinated period if it is showing signs of illness such as not eating for a week as ref'd by Carm - rapid development stage. THAT too is outlined in all vaccine manufacterers, the schools, the vets know this, and they keep on jabbing them!

The protocol states 3 weeks apart. On the VACCINE LABEL it states "2-4 weeks".
And you don't know if the vet gave the 1st vaccine or the breeder did.
If the breeder did and there's no proof, the vet may have assumed it wasn't done.
Who knows? The OP hasn't expounded.

We adhere to and recommend the following schedule which is the primary vet college in our area, the "go to" vet, if you will.

Community Practice Vaccination Protocols from the College of Veterinary Medicine

DA2PP
Puppies 6,10 and 14 weeks or 8, 12 and 16 weeks
Repeat 1 year later
Then repeat every 3 years
Each patient should be evaluated for increased risk of exposure may consider yearly protocols for these patients
Give in right shoulder

If your vet (or breeder) did the vaccines on the above schedule, they are not wrong and they didn't harm your puppy for life

So which one is it...3 weeks, 2-4 weeks...6,10 and 14....8, 12 and 16????

A reputable breeder wouldn't have, a BYB if the dog left before 6 wks. and the vet shouldn't have if the breeder did.

Absolutly nothing adds up. The puppy is 8wks.

...huh...?


Scenario - OP buys puppy (or acquires it, she hasn't said) from a BYB at 6 weeks of age.

BYB states - "puppies had their vaccines today" (meaning, at 6 weeks). But the OP has no proof of that.

OP takes puppy in at 7 weeks.
Vet, realizing this puppy came from a shady situation, vaccinates anyway - assuming that the OP was lied to.

Or at 8 weeks, I forget what the OP said. A two week spacing, if, as breeder(?) said, the puppy had a vaccine originally.

So the OP is under the belief that two vaccines were given.

Simple as that.

I thought I picked my pup out at 8 weeks. After getting him home, settled down and then counted the weeks, he was only 6 weeks. He received his first shot at 6 weeks. I took him in for a scheduled vacination visit, upon the Vet said to make the appointment. The eye check was his concern but then he clarified it at the next visit.

I want the best for my pup and so I am leaving this website because I had a simple questions and some of the response were great. Some were just talk.

So I will not post anymore, nor check out stuff on the is website. I am sorry for this blowing up to such a stinkin big deal.

I will warn others if I hear they are signing up for this website.

I personally don't care how long Carmstock has had dogs for how long. Her statements were not necessary. Nor did I appreciate them, I have had that experience once already on this site. So I learned my lesson. I will find out things some other way.

Thanks

I found nothing negative nor offensive in Carmen's statements, actually. I'm not sure how anyone really could "leave" the site because of those. Part of the 'net is knowing when to take it, when to leave it. Kinda like real life. People who announce "I'm leaving!" remind me of kids that can't handle the sandbox so they pick up their toys and go home. Why don't you just move to another corner, and ignore the kids you don't like?

It's pretty overwhelming to be told you're being irresponsible for following your vet's advice.

Okay, I had the same problem with this website.. a lot of drama, rude post, etc.. but this website, all in all, is very informative. If you go on google, look up parvo in dogs they will give you the symptoms, how to treat it and how the pup will/got parvo.

You can also look on YouTube , parvo in pups! There is this real nice video with a vet and a pup.. its really informative!

I can tell you LOVE bear. You are giving him shots at whatever age blah blah! You want whats best and you will try everything in your power to do whats best! Cant get over the fact that you had such a young young pup! But now that he is 8 weeks, just keep a watch on him. Dont get too worried or sad about somethings you see because like humans, we all go thru some change and maturity.
And trust me! The internet is chaotic. . . You can think one thing of your pup, look on the internet and find out its something really bad, get scared but in the long run you were worried about nothin! Thats why I dont take much seriousness towards internet.. your vet should know what he/s is doing so leave the decisions up to them : )

Im so sorry for you lost.. I recently lost my grandmom.. its life and we all have to understand that though its so hard.

Good luck with little bear!

Maybe...but I just found out my vet still follows the "vaccinate once a year"
philosophy, (I didn't vax my old lab except for rabies) and he WENT AND GRADUATED from WSU (years ago).

Needless to say, I will follow the 3 year advice, until Rocket is old enough I don't believe he's at risk. Meaning....some times, you need to follow your own gut, not the vet. We've all seen horror stories of "bad" vets on here.

3 years/5 way vaccines
(well, and the rabies)

Unless you're really at risk for lepto

I know about the horror stories, but all vets are not evil. It's not fair at all, or balanced, to say they are.
