you said gnc and as near as i know they only carry human things

the strongest immune system in the world will still cave under parvo or distemper
Ahhhh... Gotcha

use a high quality dog or puppy food and vitamins are unnecessary especially human vitamins

i suggest going to the vet to discuss your concerns and get his next vaccine
I give him puppy vitamins... From petsmart. I'm not that oblivious lol but I feed him blue so he should be all good.

My boy got the Distemper /Parvo (I think its a 5 way) at 8 and 12 weeks at the rescue. Then at 16 weeks I took him in for his third Distemper/Parvo and he also got his rabies. My vet recommend another Distemper/Parvo at 20 weeks because she says they are finding many black and tan dogs are not immune after the 16 week period. So I may go with another shot at 20 weeks... I haven't decided yet.
Yeah I heard parvovirus is really contagious so I was sketchy about that, but I got him these GNC vitamins to help his immune system better.

leptospirosis vaccine can cause an allergic reaction so your breeder needs to purchase only 5 ways or she risks having an allergic reaction for which i am certain she is unprepared
it is good you are researching this though

if you feel that lepto is not an issue where you live then decline the lepto portion as well as bordetella which is aka kennel cough

you may discuss the lepto portion with your vet and ask them if it is a major concern where you live or where you will be taking the puppy such as camping or hiking
I will! Appreciate the help

corona is generally not necessary
but the 5 way vaccines are necessary and those include parvo and distemper
at the very least get the 5 ways done at the vet so you know they have been done correctly
theres been a few threads lately about puppies that have contracted and died from parvo and one of a puppy overseas with distemper
both are ugly viruses that can kill your puppy quickly
