    Thanks for that info V&F. I am not keen on vaccinating at all and never used to do it. Soms of my dogs had a full puppy course, some might have had one puppy vax but none of them ever had any booster shots. Pippi is our first dog to have been vaccinated as per the "right" way.

    I believe dogs build up their own immunity if allowed

    That's a really good point about 3 years of poison in one shot. For some reason, I though it would be a diff vax and never really looked a it like that so I think we will stick with the yearly for now (though, Barney was due last month and hasn't been in yet, I think I will wait til Pippi is due in Aug/Sept and take them both at once for ease)

    I have never heard of a 3 year vax.

    When I said 3 year vax I meant just vaccinating once every 3 years. It's the same quantity in the injection as if you did it yearly.

    Putting 3 years worth of drugs into a dog at once wouldn't cause harm, but it would be completely pointless.

    I'm happy to report that I am WRONG! Went and did some research; here's the best, to-the-point info I found:

    Dog Vaccinations

    THIS I regime I certainly would consider (adding Parvo alone vac due to having Dobes)...

    Glad I am now enlightened... And apologies for incorrect info previously!!

    Sorry, haven't read the link, nor all of the posts but the 3 year vacc is no different really to annual and your dog isn't getting '3 years worth' in one vacc. Vaccines don't work in that manner.

    And for those don't follow the link; what Anne means is that different vaccinations are given over the three year period based on duration of cover... So you still go to the vet yearly.... Basically

    Ahh ok. Thought 3 years of vax in one go was a bit odd LMAO

    Mmmmmm, I agree Lala. But, the topic has been discussed on this forum multiple times and noon has ever explained it (to my knowledge)... And because I'm interested in LESS vaccinations, I've never been interested enough to find out before last night.

    So, do apologise for leading people off track!

    Essential - for my dog I think so. I wouldn't want her to get Parvo or Distemper.

    Vaccinate for Life!

    Parvo is still quite common around here, and my dog does love to sniff other dogs' crap...

    It is required if you want to join dog clubs, or board your dog at any time.

    I would do the vacinations for if they get into contact with a dog or pupppy that hasn't been done and it has a disease your dog is stuffed then. They are to protect them and if you love your pets you treat them as you would your kids. The vacs are done for a reason.
