I do puppy vaccines
distemper and parvo ONLY at 9 and 16 weeks
I do rabies no earlier than 6 mos ....
I do one year booster for distemper parvo only and after that I only do titers which determines what vaccinating I do after that.

What a foolish attitude.....

I looked at a couple of the links on this site.... one of them suggests that here in the uplands of South Carolina I should only give my dog heartworm preventative in the months of June through December. I can assure you that mosquitoes are an issue here as soon as we have our last freeze around the middle of April. I would never leave my dog uprotected for 6 or 8 weeks.

Glad Cari posted this thread. This morning driving to work I was wondering about the heartworm pills. I just picked up six month supply for Rose this morning at the vet. How long to do you do it?

I was contemplating one to two years for Rose. Any thoughts?

I am glad we stopped Jack's heartworm meds after he got the Lupus (no contraindication but he was on too many meds: on and off prednisone, tagament, pain meds, immune booster supplements etc from 5 years old to almost 16 years old). The vet was pressuring me to do the vaccine but I simply refused. Turned out the vaccine caused problems in so many dogs it was taken off the market. Now they are back to the monthly tablets.

I actually don't believe in vaccinations. Over vaccinations cause cancer. I unfortunately gave Nyah a bunch of useless add on shots that I really regret, from now on only rabies and that's only because its law. I don't vaccinate any of my cats and no rabies (they arnt license as cats don't need to be where I live and are indoor only )

I don't believe in vaccinations either, as over vaccination leads to cancer. None of my cats are vaccinated nor have rabies shot. Nyah isn't going to get any shots other than rabies starting next year... I was scammed into giving Nyah useless add on vaccinations that do more harm than good. Every dog I know of that lived 15+ years was not vaccinated and died of old age. I don't believe in pumping poison into myself or my animals.

I trust my vet and my buddy gets the recommended vaccines and preventative stuff. He had... and I treated him for heart worms when he first came to live with me. I think that treatment out-ways any risk of preventative medicines. It was a pitiful 5 weeks after his treatments. Just this old guy's opinion.

I do the puppy boosters, with the last one at 16 weeks, rabies at 6 months and then every 3 years. Adults are boostered at most every 3 years. I'm on the fence about the Lyme vaccination. I do lepto because it is a serious issue where I live.

I give Ivermectin every 35-40 days April-November.

I feel it is much too risky not to do any vaccinations, although I think titering is an alternative that many are comfortable with.

Many of my longest-lived dogs were given annual vaccinations, and lived anywhere from 13-17 years. I definitely do not recommend that anymore though.
