    Thanks for the info. My two are vaccinated. Kate reacted to the lepto. So now she has to be pre-medicated before her vaccination. She just had it two months ago & did fine.

    Just a FYI: the distemper/parvo combo with lepto in it does not cover the most common strains. You would need to give the 4-way lepto in order to be covered.

    I started giving the Vangard L-4 a few years ago despite living in a desert here. My vets had started to see their first cases. Our risk is still relatively low, but the risk increases SIGNIFICANTLY once I go to W. WA..... well, I do, for hunt tests, etc no less! So besides looking at just your backyard, consider where else any of your dogs go. And if you have any wildlife at all (incl raccoons, rats, etc), think again. I've had zero problems w/ the Vangard L-4 product. It is a stand alone vaccine so I just make sure to space it 3-4 wks (per label) from any other vaccine and give it every lt winter/early spring to cover my dogs for the riskiest part of the year. Winter is not typically a risk here.

    thanks for the heads up Laura!

    Lepto is the only one I give annually. the shot is separate, but not sure if it is the 4 way?

    Went back and checked the records, we did the lepto 4. Thanks for that information, I would not have known there was a difference.

    This is what I give too in about May. It only lasts 6 months at the most so it covers the most "at risk" time here.
