Lepto will be an annual one, but it's worth checking with the vet as some practices do still do everything annually when they shouldn't.


No she definitely said that the core vaccinations only need doing every three years (probably less than that or never if truth be told), so she must mean the Lepto4 which he will not be having.

I think some brands still state 1st booster at 1 year then 3 yearly after that for the core vaccines? Depending on the brand used you can usually check on line eg the Noah database.
Even if you don't do lepto4, the lepto2 also only lasts one year so you should consider repeating that instead next year. Lepto is a bacterial disease unlike the other 3 diseases covered and titre testing isn't accurate for it, also because it uses cell rather than antibody based immunity, it doesn't last as long.

Ah yes, good point.

She may be required to write down when they're due even if you don't have them too - legal possibly, or a practice policy.

Sorry to sound thick, so they have the first vaccinations four weeks apart as puppies, then booster at 12 months and then 3 yearly? I was thinking the second vaccinations as puppies was the actual booster, but obviously not.

My last two dogs had all of the vaccinations as recommended by the vet and died at 7 and 10 respectively. I am not saying it was due to the vaccinations, but they didn't help them live long healthy lives either sad.gif

No, but did they get any of the diseases they were vaccinated against? The vaccines don't make you do healthier or longer lived. My last dog lived to 17 and died in perfect physical health following an accident caused by her dementia. She had all her vaccinations. Anecdote doesn't make statistics...

No, the second puppy vax is in case the mother's antibodies were still present and knocked out the first one.

The booster is in case full immunity was not established with the puppy vax. This would probably not apply to all dogs but as it is not known which it is recommended all dogs are done
.I recently read some people recommend a booster at 6 months for the same reason.

Lepto and para influenza are boosted annually. Hence the 'annual booster' the core vaccines also given every third year.

No they did not get any of diseases they were vaccinated against.

They were unable to say what the 7 year old died of and the 10 year old died of cancer.
