    Default Dog Only Give a C3 Vaccination Rather then a C5...

    Hi all,

    I dont come on here much anymore, as mentioned previously i've started a dog training course so i've been pretty flat out.

    But i found out something yesterday which has puzzled me so thought I'd ask about it to see in anyone knows any answers.

    I've just found out (or rather, realised) that my dog only received c3 vaccinations rather then c5 for his first 3 doses as a pup.

    Up until now I had no idea that they had 2 different levels of care. I was not asked what type I wanted when he received them.

    Why do vets only protect against some things rather than all of them? Shouldn't ALL dogs be protected against ALL viruses?

    And what do I do now if I need to kennel my dog (which he has to have a c5 for) ?

    Hi Stef

    Go to your vet and tell them what happened. The Kennel Cough part of the C5 can be given as a nasal spray by the vet (they work faster and better anyway).

    Sumo has just been vaccinated with C7...the KC component was given as nasal spray.

    I am not sure about the second component to the C5...the Parainfluenza...if that can be given separately...ring and ask your vet

    didnt know there was a c7 thanks for that info.
    I will go into the vet this week and ask then to update ash's vaccinations.
    They should just do it in the first place.

    There are different levels of vaccination to accomidate what your dog needs at the time. There is no way I would give any of my puppies anything more than a C5 for their first and second. And if they are not traveling I would stay with a C5. I C7 my traveling dogs as this gives them more cover.
    Although every vet mixes it differently, C3 usually covers Canine Parvovirus, Canine Distemper and Canine Hepatitis.
    C5 is then made up of a C3+ two other vaccinations agains either 2x Kennel Cough, Canine Leptospirosis or Canine Coronavirus.
    C7 is just a C5+2. Like I said they mix them all differently so there is no garantee on what you are overed for. Have a look at your vaccination certificate. It should have some stickers on it to tell you what they have given you.
    Talk to your vet they will know what you will need to be covered for in your area

    Yep. Pretty just got the nasal spray to bring her up to kennel standard in case we decided to board her when away in July, then August. She will not be boarded now but to me it was not a waste of money as I was undecided. The pups, who will be boarded this week will also not be boarded again in August as we have the new huge pen (still not fully completed.) All will just be revaccinated back at the lower level from now on.

    They never see other dogs except my Father in law's ones on the other farm.

    C3 does not vaccinate for kennel cough, there are kennels that will take dogs that have only had a c3. I worked At a kennel that had to have a c5 for, never seen so many cases of kennel cough!!

    The years I have vaccinated with a c5 my dogs have gotten kennel cough, the years I haven't vaccinated, no sign of it.

    None of my pets will be vaccinated again

    Thanks for the info Terrorbull
    We dont vaccinate our cats every year. The dogs arent due for their next year vaccination yet. I think I will get them done though just because they are our first dogs so im over protective.... even though by what you're saying it can make then more prone too picking things up (and i think i have heard that before as well).

    Maybe once i am more experienced with dogs i will re think my decision.
