Im not sure when to get Bear his shots, id like to have him get them as soon as possible though, cause my other dogs are healthy and vaccinated, but they do go to the dog park and interact with other dogs, so i want to make sure Bear is safe.
So can he get them done now at 6 weeks with out any kind of side effect, like him getting sick? Also anyone know if he can have dhlpp and bordetella if i do give him his shots at 6 weeks?
The girl i work with that has Bear's sister is gonna wait till she is 8 weeks. So im not sure when i should get Bears done. I dont know if his mother was vaccinated or not since Bear is a rescue.
so when do you think Bear should get his first set?? Thanks
There are no guarantees against a reaction to vaccines in either humans or dogs regardless of age. My daughter has run a fever every time after being vaccinated.
I would tell the vet you don't want the Leptospirosis vaccine though (the L part of DHLPP), as this vaccine in particular has a reputation for being the cause of bad reactions in many breeds. And normal protocol is that you give the vaccines startinga t 6 weeks, 9 weeks, 12 weeks. And then do rabies seperately at 16 weeks. Bordatella is by preference. Some give it, some don't. I give it as my dog has a lot of contact with other dogs. If yo uplan on boarding your dog ever you will have to give this vaccine. And sometimes the vaccine causes symtoms of bordatella to appear in dogs, though it's not contagious to other the way the real bordatella virus is.
I am with cschmizzi, especially sinc eyou mentioned the dog is a rescue. IF the mother dog hasn't been properly vaccinated, she hasnt' been passing immunities in her antibodies for certain things down to her puppies even while they were nursing.
