Ok its been awhile since I had a puppy. He is 10 weeks and has had first set of shots. What is a safe vaccine schedule. I have called a couple of vets around here ( We are also in a new area) Honestly it seems they all have different amounts they want to give him. Also, I had one vet say I could neuter at 12 weeks and another that wants to wait until 6 months? I think Im more confuse now than when I called. I would prefer to neuter as soon as safely possible. Also, any thoughts on the 7 in 1's vaccines that you get from the feed store? My sister vaccinates all her animals herself and offered to do the shots and then I would just need to do check ups and rabies at the vets. Sorry didnt mean to bombard anyone with all these questions. Thanks! Rachel
After that, I only vaccinate my dog every 3 years. Our city recognizes the 3 year rabies vaccine, so we're lucky. He gets rabies one year, and the distemper/parvo (separated, each given 3-4 weeks apart) the next year and then these are given every 3 years. http://www.aahanet.org/PublicDocumen...s06Revised.pdf
I would also (personally) stay away from the 7 in 1 vaccine. That is a HUGE challenge to your young pup's immune system.
I wouldn't neuter my pup at 12 weeks... I had Henry neutered at 6 months, and in retrospect, wish I had waited. I don't have a copy of the article about health risks of neutering/spaying early, but I'm hoping one of our members who does will post it for you.
