Jun 24, 2013 - The essential vaccines for dogs are rabies, canine distemper virus, canine ..
I’ve read many articles about whether or not to vaccinate older dogs, i’m totally confused and in a dilemma as i have 2 dogs, one that is 2yrs old and one that is nearly 14yrs. I don’t want to take the older dog for a vaccination if she does not need it, she has a sensitive tummy and the slightest thing can give her diarrhea for days.
I have two dogs (maltese/shih tuz mixed) hope that was spelled correctly.. the female 14 months old and the male is 7months. They were given the distemper, adenovirus, parainfluenza, and leptospirosis vaccine at 6 weeks by the breeder. Now reading I see some of that was not needed. I am trying to decide what vaccines I need to give them. They stay in the house and never go outside in the yard (paper trained) we do walk them on sidewalk on occasion. Please help me decide what vaccines are needed. Thanks from TN

What is the 4-in-1 Canine Vaccination? This vaccine protects dogs against canine distemper, parvo virus, adenovirus type 2, hepatitis, and parainfluenza. It may also be abbreviated as DHPP or DA2PP.My friend’s dog just gave birth to 4 puppies, and I am going to take one, once it’s old enough! She is not sure about vaccination, I will share this article with her. It seems to me that a 10-way vaccination is the best way to protect your puppy, but I wonder how necessary it is?The last dose must be given between 14 and 16 weeks of age to ensure the immunity derived from mother’s milk that can inactivate vaccines has waned. Depending on when puppies start the series, they will receive a total of either 3 or 4 vaccines. An additional DAP booster should be given at the dog’s one year check-up. Adult animals with an unknown vaccination history can receive a single, initial DAP vaccine.Typically between 6-10 weeks vaccination with a combination vaccine should begin. Some toy breed dogs may not start vaccinations until 12 weeks of age due to their small size. Puppies should receive a vaccine every 3 weeks until they are 16 weeks of age. The final vaccine should be given at or after 16 weeks of age for ideal protection. A minimum of 2 vaccines must be given to puppies for the best protection. Depending on when the puppy’s vaccine series begins, they may receive 2-4 vaccinations in total. Typically between 6-10 weeks vaccination with a combination vaccine should begin. Some toy breed dogs may not start vaccinations until 12 weeks of age due to their small size. Puppies should receive a vaccine every 3 weeks until they are 16 weeks of age. The final vaccine should be given at or after 16 weeks of age for ideal protection. A minimum of 2 vaccines must be given to puppies for the best protection. Depending on when the puppy’s vaccine series begins, they may receive 2-4 vaccinations in total. For adult dogs, consideration should be give to the dog’s risk level of being exposed to distemper and parvo when deciding on adult boosters. Discuss with your veterinarian the number of cases they see. Checking with local shelters and rescue groups can also be helpful. If these diseases are not common in your area, booster vaccines may be given less often than if your dog is often exposed to these diseases. Dogs that frequent dog parks, dog shows, boarding facility, and day-care facilities may also be at increase risk. I recommend that all dogs receive a distemper/parvo booster 1 year after completion of their puppy series. After that, extremely low risk dogs may be tittered annually (refer to the discussion of vaccine titers under the rabies vaccine) or as recommended by their veterinarian. Animals that are at risk may be vaccinated every 3 years following the initial 1 year booster. For animals that fall in the middle, consider vaccinating every 3-5 years. As always, discuss your dog’s risk level with your veterinarian. "Parvo virus is causing illness and death indogs in San Bernardino. PLEASE get your dog vaccinated today. Puppies need 3 tobe safe, starting at 12-14 weeks of age!"
