My poodle (12 lb and pure white) has had the Lepto vaccine each year with no side effects. Delgado has had no side effects either, and since they are around wildlife often and hiking offleash I'm going to continue vaccinating for it. I've talked it over with my vet and I'm happy with my decision, neither dog has contracted the disease either so maybe I'm just very blessed or the vaccine is doing it's job. Who knows
I don't push the vaccine either way on other people, I really believe it should be a decision between you and your vet. Weigh the benefits and risks yourself and make the decision.

It surely must all be a conspiracy then, if every vet has said 'four'!!
Why are you calling vets everywhere? I personally have known two out of the three vets at my clinic for 22 years. I've been going there since I got my first big dog at age 21. They have even come to my home to put my animals to sleep when that day has come. I've had that relationship longer than I've been married. I trust what they say. I make my own decisions, I don't blindly follow what they suggest for everything, but I sure as heck value their input.
As should most people trust or find a vet they can trust, rather than getting all their info from an internet forum. (Not to suggest you).

|RocketDog||I'm the one who actually mentioned 'four cases'. You never mentioned anything else in the other posts (unless I missed something) about cases at all. Interesting that you used that in your analogy. Of course I would take that literally.|

|RocketDog||As I understand it, as with most vaccines that have multiple strains, the 4 way one covers the strains responsible for the majority of cases in dogs. I'd rather have 20% risk than 100% risk. The decision to vax is personal but should be based on science, not scare tactics.|
