Default opinons on vaccination schedules for toy poodles

My head is spinning with all of the information I have been reading. My guys are most likely closer to tiny toys then toys and I have concerns. These small little guys get the same vaccinations as the bigger pups (large breed dogs). These small breeds even fully grown can weigh less then some large breed pups.

Ryker and Canyon have gotten DHP, Parvo, and Coronavirus twice, 12/06/2012 and 12/22/2012 (born Nov 1st). Supposedly they are due for another round.

I worry about too much, but then worry about protecting them. What is best for my guys? What schedule should I do?

I have a toy too. I only allow him to receive one shot at a time. I space them out which I believe lessens the possibility of an adverse reaction. I would not vaccinate again for Coronavirus personally since I feel it is unlikely a pet will get this unless there is an outbreak in your area. I would get DHP and Parvo bt wait two or three weeks between each shot. My vet does not charge me for additional visits as a vet tech can administer the shot (although she usually does it anyway and gives Swizzle a quick check too). I am very cautious with vaccines. I think it is a good idea to research each vaccine and have a discussion with your vet about what is best for your dogs as there may be local issues that effect your decision.

I follow the internationally recommended protocol: www.vmd.defra.gov.uk/pdf/WSAVAguidelines.pdf

My vet is also very comfortable with this, although there can be issues with insurers and boarding kennels in the UK expecting annual revaccination.

Great link FJM. I notice they have Coronavirus on the not recommended list. You don't mention Lepto but since you have a toy read what they say about it.

I avoid the Coronavirus one unless it is specifically required for boarding - so far they have not needed it. My vet and I have a debate about Lepto every year - he believes it is advisable where we live, and there have been cases elsewhere in the country, so they usually do get that one. I am very torn about Rabies - not required in the UK, but mandatory if we want to be able to travel out of the country. So far I have left the dogs at home and made brief forays to the continent, but if our summers continue to be cold and wet the temptation to go away for a month or two in the sun may become overwhelming!

Lepto is an innoculation that depends on your area. When Swizzle was a puppy there was an outbreak in the neighboring state and my vet thought Swizzle should get it and he did. On our last visit she told me she has stopped giving Lepto shots. Evidently is often does not cover all the strains and it has the most complaints of reactions and side effects. I am not saying don't get this but definitely discuss the risk/benefit with your vet. My vet is iffy on Lyme vaccine but since my area has so many ticks I always get it. I know so many people and dogs who have had Lyme disease that I feel it is worth the risk of a shot.

My vet only gives my little guys one shot at a time. So when we need rabies and the booster it requires 2 visits about 2 weeks apart. Penelope scared me the most as she is barely 3 lbs as an adult. She does just fine with no issues at all.

After my research when I got Molly, I didn't like the possibility of the side effects of Lepto and didn't do it. But I've always opted to do a 8-12-16wk schedule with an extra Parvo at 20 wks because it is very virulent here in S.Calif. Rabies shot is the law here at 4mths(16wks) so had to be done.... Since you have toys that will pretty much be indoors the only thing I would worry a lot about is Parvo, of which I know you are already aware of! Decisions, decisions, decisions..............LOL!

Swizzle gets the Parvo shot too. It is so contagious and the mortality rate is so high I feel it is a must have.
