All vaccines have a potential for adverse reaction but you have to weigh the pros vs cons with them - see what risks you have locally and go from there. Lepto is another that can cause bad reactions and only covers certain strains. IMO bordatella is useless in most circumstances...

Not all but lots of vets will push all vaccines at yearly intervals because 1) it is income and 2) they don't always keep up with the most current research/learning.

What your pup got is the first DHPP (Distemper , Hepatitis, Parainfluenze, Parvo). The 2011 vaccines guidelines for puppies ask for three vaccinations spaced out 3 or 4 weeks apart. So, according to this he needs another round of the same at 12 weeks and 16 weeks. The last recommended booster for that particular combination is one year after the vaccination in the series. After that, every three years for DHPP.

Rabies, in the US, is done at different ages according to either state law or local law. I need to check what Toronto's law requires before I can tell you when he would need that in you particular case.

Other vaccines are considered non-core. This means that they are given on an as-needed basis according to where the dog lives, the dogs' activities, and the owner's lifestyle. In my particular case, I choose to give Bordatella because I may need my dogs to be boarded from one day to the next in an emergency. While I am aware that the Bordatella vaccine does not protect 100% no boarding place will take the dogs without it. If it is given ahead of boarding time, the chances my dogs contract kennel cough while boarded is reduced. If is is given on boarding day, it is useless since it takes about 10 days for immunity to develop.

In short, you need two rounds of DHPP between now and 16 weeks, rabies as prescribed by law, other vaccines are subject to a discussion between you and your vet.

Cost : DHPP with physical exam at my vet was USD 62 in October 2012 (CAN dollar is roughly the same). It is my understanding that vet costs in larger cities may be higher.

My puppy is 13 weeks old and we won't be able to bring him to the vet for another 2 or 3 weeks, does that mean I need to get him vaccinated again at 20 weeks? I think I'm also gonna get 4 way leptospirosis

Following the Dodd Protocol is a good way to start. Long term immunity is not established until the one year booster is given.

Vaccinations like lyme, bordatella, lepto are "when, if" but you have to decide that. Lepto has a very high rate of reaction and most dogs don't need it. In a cooler climate I highly doubt lepto is a problem. Even if there are cases of Lepto in you area doesn't mean there is a high risk. Lyme is useless and bordatella is usually required when you board.

I haven't vaccinated for other than rabies after the one year booster.

Mothers immunity is lost at the latest 16 weeks. At 20 weeks do one more Distemper/Parvo and a rabies a couple weeks later. Then re booster that again a year later then no more vaccines other then a rabies 3 year. I dont even do rabies but thats just me. I pay $100 for booster and a rabies (had my kitten done a number of months ago). Many vets want $150 for all that.

I dont do Lepto or lyme or bordetella...

You can do one Distemper/Parvo at 16 weeks, then a couple weeks later do a 3 year rabies vaccine. Then rebooster a year later then your good to go. You can do the full booster Distemper/Parvo/parainfluenza/Hepatitis/lepto but the Distemper/parvo are the two most important ones.

Mine have not received a Distemper parvo shot in years and are fine. I do not vaccinate for rabies anymore either (my one cant have it because hes allergic to it and the other is older)

I am sure your vet will tell you a different tale but I generally take what advice/suggestions I like and disregard the rest.

For deworming I use either Panacur or Drontal. I do it once then another time about 1-2 weeks later. Then no more deworming unless I notice a problem
