gsdsar Most places now accept 3 year Dhpp. You should talk to your vet about them.

Yes, they are required for boarding - probably most places. I don't know if titers would be accepted. Your dogs are beautiful, BTW.

OMG Zeeva, have you not read the vaccination threads. Tons of links.

One note especially. Never rabies with other vaccines. NO vaccines are not law, except rabies seems in the U.S. In Canada too, but seems not to be strictly enforced. No rabies police.

Not a such a great vet if he is ignoring the AVMA's guidelines and still doing annual. Sigh.

katieliz Yearly boosters are primarily a money-maker for the veterinary profession. More and more people are becoming aware of the dangers and side effects of over-vaccination. Rabies as required, and then only the three year. Imho.

eddie1976E I think rabies in the only one required by law in most places.

Rabies by law only needs to be done every 3 years I think. At least where I am they give the "3 year booster" (which is the exact same thing as the yearly ) just ask your vet about the three year rabies. For everything else more and more vets (and owners) are learning/doing titer testing to see if they actually need a certain booster or not. Lots of dogs don't need yearly vaccines as they developed enough antibodies from the previous vaccines.

Although the bump at the injection site might stick around up to a month. His has gone down alot.
