Agreed, it's the opposite of a limited vaccine protocol. I would be hesitant to get a puppy from a breeder who vaccinates their puppies in this way.5 way = distemper, parvo, parainfluenza, hepatitis, and adenovirus
7 way = distemper, parvo, parainfluenza, hepatitis, adenovirus, leptospiorosis, corona
I would question why they are giving a 7 way shot to a PUPPY! That's very OLD school and usually done by people who don't know any better. The lepto vaccine is one of the biggest culprits for causing vax reactions because it's a LIVE virus vaccine. A dog really doesn't need it unless they are drinking out of ponds, streams, puddles, etc where wildlife are.
The most current protocol for puppies is parvo/distemper ONLY except for rabies at 16 weeks.
All these vaccines are one of the reason we see so many of the immune system issues these day. Seizures, renal failure, liver disorders, chronic infections, the list could go on and on!!!!
sorry, didn't mean to start my own rant
Seven, eleven and fifteen is what we do. That IS an awful lot too early.At 12 weeks this person has given 3 sets of those shots?? Wow that's pretty young to get 3 sets of shots. I believe the recommendation now is to wait until the dog is 14-16 weeks. I could be wrong but I'm much more conservative with shots than some people.
wishpoo,I understand your heart being with a puppy,but do you have to get this puppy or go through with this? I would worry on the breeders practice of how they are vaccinating and the long term effects.We do not give ANY vacs before 9 WEEKS.Yes,and breeders do puppies so young so they can get rid of them faster!Many of them START a 6 weeks,some even earlier,it's terrible.It's very hard on those little delicate systems.Honestly,maybe you need to PASS.DesertReef - How would I "detoxify" him ?! If he is not over- vaccinated from this point on - would it help at all ? :rolffleyes: Would raw diet help ? Supplements ?:weep: : ((((
