I really am at a loss for why rabies is incriminated for causing horrible problems..., I do vaccinate mine for kennel cough, Lyme, and lepto. Kennel cough due to classes and boarding, lyme and lepto, because we do live in the woods. I do spread out the vaccines in mine and encourage it with clients... The way I look at it,is if vaccines cause cancer why don't we see it across all breeds? Certain breeds are certainly over represented with cancer... Hello maybe there is a genetic reason?
Sounds similar to what we did with Samantha, although hers were a little closer together. I pulled out my vet records to check. She was born in 2007.

DHLPPC at 8, 10, and 12 weeks.
Rabies vaccine at 12 weeks (1 year). Her next was a year from the first vaccine, and a 3 year booster was given that time.

We've never had any vaccine reactions or issues.

I believe in being and advocate for my pets but I also firmly believe that I go to and trust in a vet because they went to school for this, have the experience, etc. If I don't like something I hear, I can and have found a new vet. However, I'm not going to pretend like I know more than my vet because of a book I read or a forum. Ultimately, I place my trust in the expert I choose to help look after my pets.

Here is my clinic's protocol:

DHLPP at 12 weeks, Start Lyme vaccine, and Kennel cough/Bordatella vaccine given

DHLPP at 16 weeks, finish lyme vaccine and Rabies given

These are also the AAHA guidelines.

that is your choice to make... I prefer not to give my dogs vaccines that have been shown not to fully protect...

everyone should do their own research and come up with their own conclusions...

lets be honest... many vets were very slow to move to the new guidelines for vaccinations... Jean Dodds and breeders were recommending fewer vaccinations for many many years before the majority of vets moved to the protocol.

You may be the exception Janice you are clearly more knowedgable than many and being in the fancy you have educated yourself... I personally know of many vets who are still recommending every vaccine under the sun on a yearly basis... unfortunately as with everything there are people who keep themselves educated and people who don't ... and different theories... I personally would trust an epidemiologists recommendations.

That and I would never ever ever give a vaccine with lepto in it to a puppy.... I know of three breeders who have almost lost entire litters to lepto vaccines... if you are in an endemic area then giving lepto is probably necessary with adults but never to a puppy

I really think that Shalva is right on the money with all this, as I too subscribe to the Jean Dodds protocol. In fact I have had discussions with her about this very topic. I think that Shalva's dateline of 9 and 15 (colostrum is believed to have run it's course at 9 weeks in most tested cases) weeks makes wonderful sense...and vaccinating for rabies at 6 months makes perfect sense, as you have to be cognizant of spacing vaccines in good order. (under most normal instances)
I would also like to know who administers the adenovirus vaccine to their dog, which Dr. Schultz has listed as part of HIS "core" group, but which Jean Dodds doesn't. Her response to me on that was that there haven't been any reported cases in North America in at least 15 years to date.
Also curious about the new rage parainfluenza vaccination...

Lepto and Lyme are issues here...my guys are vaccinated. And they may not be 100% but it is better than nothing. I do split,up,most vaccines with my dogs.

Does anyone else's breeder use the high titer parvo virus vaccine? My breeder uses this at 6 weeks with her puppies. The info I have researched so far, which I admit has been limited, seems to show this vaccine has shown good results as far as stimulating the puppies own immune system to respond to the virus.

How well a pup repsonds to a vaccine has to do with the mom's own immunity and then how long her immunity remains in the pup's system...

My beagle who lived to be 17 had a distemper vaccine every year and a rabies vaccine every two years... Plus Lyme, lepto, kennel cough.

I have just discovered a line of vaccines made by the DURAMUNE people.

It's called ULTRA...and what it does is eliminate some extraneous proteins and cells while purifying in the process; at HALF the dose. .05 ml

They're also out with a Bordetella vaccine which is administered ORALLY with a syringe, (no needle, of course) called BRONCHI-SHIELD.
