    Defaultyearly vaccines

    I am mandated by the military to have my dogs vaccinated yearly. I just got back from Barnsley's appt. I read some old posts about dogs being vaccinated too frequently and now I am worried. Should I be? ???

    My vet recommends 3 year vaccinations, though I have to admit that I am a bit behind on Hudler and Maddy. They were getting titers in CA and hadn't gotten anything since their 1 year boosters. The breeders around here do their own shots, so I am going to learn from them and get back on track.

    I was under the impression most vets were now doing the 3 year system. I would check with your vet and if they are doing them 3 years maybe present that info.

    Do you know a good website that would tell me all about the new opinions on vaccines, the 3 year, etc? If I present information I want it to accurate and come from a reputable source.

    Even my old vet, who is pretty conservative, has gone to the three year rabies and 2-3 year everything else.

    I'm not sure if this is in one of the other links, but here is one from the UC-Davis School of Veterinary Medicine.

    What state are you in? Here in the Seattle, WA area the 1st rabies shot is good for one year, after that they are good for 3 years. But some vets in WA State are still doing the once a year rabies shot. All the other shots are still every year around here. But Bordetella is optional I guess since I had to ask for it. I figure even if I don't board my dogs they will still be socializing with other dogs at the parks.

    We live in Okinawa Japan and see a military vet. It may be that it is mandated by the Japanese govt. also. The distemper and rabies are the 2 shots he had to get.
