2013 and 2014 Vaccination Protocol


Note: The following vaccine protocol is offered for those dogs where minimal vaccinations are advisable or desirable. The schedule is one Dr. Dodds recommends and should not be interpreted to mean that other protocols recommended by a veterinarian would be less satisfactory. It’s a matter of professional judgment and choice.

10 Weeks Old:
Distemper + Parvovirus, MLV (Modified Live Virus e.g NeoTech LLC NeoPar & NeoVac D) More about NeoTech Parvo & Distemper

16 Weeks:
Same as above

20 Weeks or Older (if allowable by law):
Rabies

1 Year To 15 Months:
Distemper + Parvovirus, MLV (optional = titer)

1 Year:

Rabies, killed 3-year product (give 3-4 weeks apart from distemper/parvovirus booster)

Perform vaccine antibody titers for distemper and parvovirus every three years thereafter, or more often, if desired. Vaccinate for rabies virus according to the law, except where circumstances indicate that a written waiver needs to be obtained from the primary care veterinarian. In that case, a rabies antibody titer can also be performed to accompany the waiver request. See the Rabies Challenge Fund website.
