    QuestionSooo Frustrated!!

    I took my puppies in to the vet on Tuesday for their Rabies vac. The gal looks at their chart, says they need 2 shots and gets them ready.

    When I got home I looked at the receipt, went to file it with the rest of their records, but then noticed that it said da2lp and pvc #2. I thought...hmmm, that doesn't look right. They should have been done with everything except Rabies. I pull out the breeders records and see that they had the DHLPPC x2 already (I had brought these records with me to our vet last month at their first visit when they got what I thought to be #3 da2lp and pvc).
    So they have had..
    DHLPPC at 6w and 9w
    da2lp and pvc at 12w and 16w.
    I know that the one they got at my vet has the 5in1, but they already had the 3in1. Did they get too much of the same shots??? They want to give them another da2lp and pvc at 20w! That seems like waaayyyyy too much to me. Does anybody know if this is harmful??? Should they really get another da2lp and pvc just to cover the couple things that are missing in the first two shots and OD on the ones they had too many of?

    What is pvc and da2lp?

    Is Corona even necessary in MI?

    Is sure sounds likes lot of vaccinations for the pups (they are 4 months old)?

    My 4monrh olds need their 3rd DHPP, Lepto and Rabies, but they will be done separately.

    Ok, I just called the vets office that the breeder took them to.
    They said that my vet gave the vac with leptospirosis in it. He also said that when the pups start so early, a 4th booster is done. So they are complete with the shots. They do not need to go for another one in 4 weeks as I was told by the receptionist.
    I am still annoyed that this was done this way when I was specifically trying to do the Rabies alone. Grrr! My fault for not going to vet school prior an appointment.

    Most breeders (at least the reputable ones) don't give a shot at 6 weeks. It's too early and it just makes you have to give the pups ONE more series at the end. If you are comfortable with your breeder, you might want to talk to them about why they are using outdated vaccination protocols.
