Just talked to my vet yesterday about the 3 year vaccine program. He said it's an excellent idea for Koby (who is almost three and has always been innoculated up to now.) For Sabaka he said finish up the puppy shots and do a 3 year rabies next year along with the DHLPPC. After that he said every three years will work fine. Koby seemed perfectly happy having one poke intead of three. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

I will keep this short. I do the shots the law requires, rabies and distemper. I also vacinate as my vet sees fit, no special timetable, and stay away from vacines that are all-in-one.

Maedchen, that great that you want unvaccinated lines, but keep in mind, state law might say differently. Here they have to be vaccinated to be sold and can't be sold until 8 wks.

Just out of curiosity, what would be the reason for wanting an unvaccicated puppy.

"Just out of curiosity, what would be the reason for wanting an unvaccicated puppy"

To finally have a truly healthy, sound dog!
Vaccines change DNA and create chronic diseases -many of them seen as "normal" today because they are so common ~ but didn't exist before we started heavily vaccinating. [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

I pretty much do what the Vet says. We might have a debate, but when it is all said and done, I will trust the Vets opinion. I also trust my Vet completely, especially after the way he treated Klyde his last years.

Just got back from my vet. They're following the protocol recommended in studies by the American Animal Hospital Assoc. and American Veterinary Medical Assoc. For adult dogs, the one or three year rabies as required by law. But, for the Distemper/Parvo complex, they're only doing it every 3 years. And elective vaccinations - Bordetella, Lyme, and Lepto - they're doing a risk assessment on each dog and discussing it with the client. I love my vet. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
